    Patch Solaris 8 systems


      Is there anyone that has successfully been able to patch Solaris 8 systems using this tool? If you have a guide I would be happy. I have tried a couple of times but failed even though I have installed required patches.

      Regards Jerry

          Does anything show up in the agent logs directory? You may have missing packages, such as SUNWbash, SUNWswmt, and SUNWgzip which are often missing on Solaris 8 systems.

          If you are unable to find anything in the logs then I would advise opening a support case. Note that it is likely that we will ask you to collect information from the system using the [GDD script|http://www.sun.com/bigadmin/scripts/sunScripts/SUN-GDD_sun-connection-collect_noarch.tar.gz] . It would be worthwhile if you could collect the information whilst attempting to run a job against the system.

          Run the script on the agent:
          # ./SUN-GDD_SunConnection.sh -debugAgent -auto 1800 -o /var/tmp
          This will enable debug-level logging on the agent and automatically collect the logs after 30 minutes - you may wish to adjust the time to suit.
