Download patch cluster

Does anyone have an alternate site to download J2SE Solaris Recommended Patch Cluster for Solaris 8. Sun does not let me download the patches unless I have a support contract. I do not. Our software is legal, but our support contract wore out. I need this patchset to avoid downloading 30 individual patches that I need to install an Oracle upgrade.

Anonymous FTP to use to work but it seems that Sun has modified its site again.

They have a script you can use to retrieve the info. They just want everyone to have a sunsolve account in order to retrieve the patches. I had to modify my scripts to include my username/password but I haven't had any trouble retrieve information afterwards. I retrieved the script and modified it to retrieve the patchdiag.xref file.


# Wget script to retrieve Patches from via https and
# supply username and password.

# ----Begin of user defined values -----

# Patch to wget

#Sun Login info.  Modify with your account Sun account info.
UserID="[sunsolve userid]"
UserPWD="[sunsolve password]"

# Patch output directory

# ----End of user defined values -----

LOGFILE="$DOWNLOADDIR/xreflog-`date +%m-%d-%y-%H:%M`"

echo ""
${WGETPATH}/wget --http-user=${UserID} --http-passwd=${UserPWD} -nv "" -O ${DOWNLOADDIR}/patchdiag.xref >> ${LOGFILE} 2>&1

Patch Cluster

I tried to retrive the Patch Cluster from Sun but got the following error:

Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
Please contact the server administrator, and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

I sent mail to the e-mail address yesterday, but have not heard back.

I just tried the posted link I provided yesterday and it works fine. Perhaps the server was down. Try again.

Perhaps you cut and pasted rather than activiating the link? Here is the URL with quotes to prevent abbreviation.

I went through to get the patch. That is where I got the error. Thanks for the link. I downloaded the file with no problem.
