Solaris Cluster 3.2 patches are not accessible as Oracle discontinued Premier Support for Solaris Cluster 3.2 on September 2012.
This was announced in the community thread "Premier Support for Solaris Cluster 3.2 ends on September 2012"

So, Solaris Cluster 3.2 is now in Extended Support state until October 2014 then it moves to Sustaining Support.
