Information in this document applies to any platform.


The Oracle HSM 6.1-06 patch release (build id 6.1.67) is the current HSM release, as of August 2022 and supersedes all the previous 6.1-0X patches.  Reference Document 2888976.1 for further details.


The Oracle HSM (SAM-QFS) 6.1-05 release (build id 6.1.59) has been available out on MOS (My Oracle Support), since August 12th, 2020.

New Features in the 6.1-05 Release:

 * 30275438 Qualified OSC 4.4 with Oracle HSM 6.1-05

The minimum Solaris level is 11.3, with the HSM 6.1-05 patch release, as the Solaris 11.0-11.2 levels are no longer supported with the HSM 6.1-05 patch release.

If using a Solaris 11.4 level, SRU 21 will be a required minimum.  The HSM 6.1-05 patch release will not load on Solaris 11.4 SRUs 1 through 20 because of a change to the Solaris 'verified boot' security certificates.

A listing of all the 6.1.X bugfixes can be found in the "README.txt" of the patch download bundles.

For details on the previous HSM 6.1-04 patch release, see Document 2566094.1

For details on the HSM 6.1 Base release, see Document 2124212.1.
