Patch hell upgrading Sun Java Directory Server on SXCE


Hi.

Some time ago I switched back to SXCE from OpenSolaris on some development machines in order to install Sun Java Directory Server. I installed it with the Java Enterprise System 5 installer and all went smooth on SXCE. Unfortunately I hit a bug in that DS version (6.2) and wanted to upgrade the server to version 6.3. The upgrade is distributed only as a patch only install for installations made with native packages (as JES installer does). I then try to follow the Java DS 6.3 installation documentation but I get immediately stuck on required system patches: some of them refuse to install because either a required patch is missing or because of the package version. I suppose the problem is that SXCE showrev is not showing the required patches even if the packages are newer versions that the patches themselves: some of them date back to 2007 or beginning of 2008.

(Is there a way/Would you try) to force the installation someway or this is the typical case in which I should be running Solaris 10?

Thanks in advance,
Enrico

I would just install the zipped version of DS 6.3.

Thanks jlliagre.

That's what I thought after this happened. I usually prefer installing native packages rather than zip distributions... and the documentation instructs to use patches to upgrade a native package installation.

By the way, I chose the Java Enterprise System because it seemed a good choice when installing multiple products. Now I realize that JES is update much less than individual products and I'm wondering if JES is still a good choice of if I should switch to installing every product I need one by one. Any suggestion about this?

If somebody finds itself in the same situations, here's a summary of what I've done after reading Sun JSDEE official documentation.
