Solaris 10 Update 10?

Friday (2011/08/12) I went to the Solaris Download page and Update 10 was available for download. Today I go back to the page and it has reverted back to Update 9. Anybody know what's up? Has Update 10 been released or not?

    Well, it was released on friday, i downloaded it and upgraded my workstation to it (i tried Solaris 11, but never got it to work with three monitors over two graphic-cards).

    However it was impossible to find any "whats new" documentation regarding it, or any documentation at all. So perhaps it was released to early, or perhaps it had a severe bug.

    The S10u10 ISO shouldn't be available until at least September. It looks like the ISO was accidentally released early but pulled quickly.

    Also, patch 145899-05, which was a bad patch, seems to be in the release of update 10 i got.. Could be a reason too..

    I downloaded it on Friday and installed it on a couple of test boxes. It works fine for me but I did have an install issue. I had rpool/export mounted as /export and I couldn't create a new Live Upgrade boot environment to do the install with that arrangement (using the LiveUpgrade which came with the update release). I had to change the ZFS mount point to /rpool/export so I could create the new BE. After doing the luupgrade I was able to put /export back.

    I assume that the release was put up last Friday in error and was later retracted. I don't know why. At this point I don't think I can move forward with the release I downloaded. First, I need to see what the release notes might have to say concerning the /export issue among other things. Second, I don't know whether the final release will be the same as the one they had up last Friday or not. I don't want to spend time on it unless I know it is the final release.

    Well that's a bit frightening isn't it? Why don't they at least put up a message on the download page for anyone who downloaded it? I heard about the new update and was about to try it since ZFS won't import my pool and I lost 200G of data. I'm glad I didn't get a chance to download it if there's a bad patch in there. I have all the problems I need with Solaris right now!

    Why are you terming this as a bad patch? I am not able to find any thing in the internet. Could you let me know this?

    The patch is question is listed on the Oracle support site as having been withdrawn because is can cause a panic. The patch (145899-05/145900-05) is for libmeta.so which is part of SVM. So if you don't use SVM it isn't an issue; however, if you do it could be a problem.

    FWIW - What I'm hearing from my sources is that the ISO that was available IS the Update 10 that will be released. It will be officially released when the documentation is complete. That's probably why they haven't issued some kind of "retraction statement"...

    I guess you are right, it was probably released a bit to quickly..

    I've been running it for 10 days without any problems :) But it would still be interesting to see the 'whats new' documentation..

    FYI: Oracle Solaris 10 Update 10 (a.k.a. Solaris 10 8/11) finally hit the streets on Thursday.

    Links to DVD ISO images for both SPARC and x86 are available on this page:

    http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/server-storage/solaris/downloads/index.html

    You can also get a Solaris 10 x86 Virtual Machine for Sun's Oracle's VirtualBox here:

    OTN does not allow you to authenticate yourself using a command-line download manager such as wget or curl.

    So this is what I do....

    Requirements:

    * wget 1.8+ (run wget -h to check, download a pre-compiled binary into a non-root non-Oracle account if you don't have it already.)
    * The system must be able to ping download.oracle.com
    * Firefox and the 'Export Cookies' plugin available from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/export-cookies/

    Overview
    ========

    The procedure is broken down in to two parts:

    1) Create a 'cookies.txt' file which will be used by wget to authenticate your session
    2) Use wget to download the files

    Creating the 'cookies.txt' file using Firefox and the 'Export Cookies' plugin
    =============================================================================
    Using your local copy of firefox (the one running on your laptop/desktop) install the 'Export Cookies' plugin.

    1) Go to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/export-cookies/ and install the plugin. Then restart Firefox when prompted.
    2) Navigate to the appropriate product download page, eg: Oracle 11g Release 2 Database = http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/enterprise-edition/downloads/index.html
    3) Login using your SSO credentials
    4) Go to Tools -> "Export Cookies" and save the file as "cookies.txt"
    5) Copy the cookies.txt file over to the target system (the system you will be downloading the files to).

    # scp cookies.txt <username>@<hostname|ipaddr>:/var/tmp

    6) Now SSH on to the target system and you're ready to download the files

    # ssh <username>@<hostname|ipadd>

    7) Copy the URL of the download page (the referred) and the URL of the download link itself. Now you can use wget and replace ${REFERER_URL} and ${DL_URL} in the following with the correct URLs

    # cd /var/tmp
    # /usr/sfw/bin/wget --referer=${REFERER_URL} \
    cookies=on load-cookies=cookies.txt --proxy=off \
    keep-session-cookies no-check-certificate \
    ${DL_URL}

    eg, to download the 'Solaris 10 Recommended Patch Cluster/Patchset' use:

    /usr/sfw/bin/wget \
    cookies=on load-cookies=cookies.txt --proxy=off \
    keep-session-cookies no-check-certificate \
    https://getupdates.oracle.com/patch_cluster/10_Recommended.zip

    8) The downloaded files will typically be postfixed with some tokens, eg: SolarisStudio12.2-solaris-sparc-tar-ML.tar.bz2?e=1298687427&h=45a0c1a47ad16a665d5a575fa9550ee0. Simply rename the file to SolarisStudio12.2-solaris-sparc-tar-ML.tar.bz2

    9) Extract/uncompress and install
