Guidelines for software/security patching on BDA (Doc ID 2132520.1)

Last updated on JULY 29, 2017

Applies to:

Big Data Appliance Integrated Software - Version 4.1.0 and later
Linux x86-64

Goal

Provide basic guidelines for updating software/security fixes on BDA.

BDA releases come out quarterly (approximately).  Therefore separate security patch updates are not released. Instead the recommendation is to upgrade to the most recent BDA release.

Security-conscious customers may review the CPU updates and apply the relevant Oracle Linux or JDK or UEK updates if required.  In this case Oracle Linux, JDK and UEK updates may be applied outside of the regular BDA upgrade cycle.  Details follow below.
