    solaris 8 patching

    918502
      Hello,
      I have recently brought up my two old solaris 8 boxes and want to bring them all up to data, but it seems that i can no longer get the patch files as i don't have the Sun Contract Number?

      I have logged into https://support.oracle.com/CSP/ui/flash.html

      but cannot proceed.

      Where do i get the latest solaris8 patches? Or what is the procedure to get a Sun Contract Number, I have the Solaris8 licence number that came with the CD

      # showrev -p

          Hi.
          Patches for Solaris from Oracle - not free. You require buy service contract for get access to it.

          So get Patches for Solaris 8 you neeed special say about it, becouse it's not coverd by standart premier support.
          ( Solaris 8 - extended support ).
          http://www.oracle.com/us/support/library/lifetime-support-hardware-os-337182.pdf

          When you buy service contact - you get customer support identifier ( CSI) that require for support.oracle.com
