How would one go about updating their system without a support contract to fix this bug?

Any ideas? Would love to get iscsi working, were building a proof of concept server, once we get it working and tested we will be going forward with a support contract. As for right now, looking not so great, but I'm new to this OS.
is this update available to support paying users only?
That is correct.
If you do not have a service contract, you are not producing an income stream to the company.
You are therefore not a customer. The company provides assistance (support) only to customers.
If that isn't satisfactory, then you can return the software product to them for a refund.
Additionally, if you wish to get a more complete response on that topic, you will need to contact the company directly. For your convenience there is a link at the bottom of every forum page to make that easy.
These forums are NOT a method to contact Oracle.
They are hosted by the company for user-to-user interaction and not as an alternative to Technical Support. That is prominently mention in the first two paragraphs of the Forum FAQ that you read when you registered as a user to these forums.
The 2 steps you are quoted would be issued on the Linux (client) initiator, for example,
not on the Solaris target system side. Except I applied Solaris SMF syntax to step 2,
which on a Linux system should be:
# service iscsi restart
The other guys on this thread can speak to applying this fix on other client types.
Oracle should consider re-packaging the 11.1 release with at least this bug fix if they wish to continue to produce an income stream. These releases are supposed to provide a stable platform for customer evaluation. A core part of the "Cloud OS" not functioning is a huge road block for potential customers considering Solaris as a SAN solution.
With apologies to the original poster, but this thread has gotten hijacked too often to continue.
Your original question may not have been completely answered but the discussion has wandered far from that inquiry.
