This PSU cannot be applied to Exalogic machines running Solaris 11 Express (Exalogic infrastructure version 1.x). Exalogic machines running Solaris 11 Express must be upgraded to Solaris 11.1 by using the upgrade kit (patch 15931901) before applying this PSU.   


This patch cannot be applied to Exalogic systems running Solaris 11 Express (Exalogic infrastructure v1.x). Solaris 11 Express environments must be upgraded to Solaris 11.1 by using the upgrade kit (patch 15931901) before applying this patch.

This Exalogic Infrastructure Patch Set Update (PSU) is not applicable to Exalogic X4-2 systems


This document describes how to apply Exalogic infrastructure patches/updates (OS, firmware, software, and utility updates), which include patches to Exalogic compute node as well as patches/updates to off-node components in the rack, namely, the NM2-GW switches, NM2-36p switch, and the ZFS storage appliance.  

Oracle's recommendation is that Patch Set Upgrades should only be performed by qualified and experienced personnel, such as resources available through Oracle Advanced Customer Support Services. Upgrade services are available from Oracle Advanced Customer Services via the Oracle Exalogic Quarterly Patch Deployment Service component of the Oracle Exalogic Start-Up Pack service offering.
