Introduction

This document describes the Solaris 10 environment patches for the Cisco Media Gateway Controller (MGC) software. These packages might be required as a part of the installation procedures for the products running on the Solaris 10 platform.

For information on application and installation of the Sun Solaris patches, refer to the Cisco Media Gateway Controller Software Release 9 Installation and Configuration Guide.

The currently deployed Solaris patch set is release 3.0(6).


Caution To maintain tested configurations, do not download packages directly from the Sun website. Although Sun's website might contain later patch versions, you should apply only those patches that are provided by Cisco through CD or CCO.


Note Solaris 10 environment packages can be downloaded from the following url. You must be logged into www.cisco.com to see these packages.


Sparc Version:

http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/mgc-sol10-sparc

Opteron Version:

http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/mgc-sol10-opteron

Determining Which Solaris Release Version Is Installed on Your System

To determine which Solaris release is installed on your system, use the following command:

cat /etc/release

In the following example, the OS is Solaris 10 for X86 architecture

cat /etc/release
Solaris 10 1/06 s10x_u1wos_nightly X86
Copyright 2005 Sun Microsystems, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
Use is subject to license terms.
Assembled 15 December 2005

To determine the Solaris release version of a package that is installed on your system, use the following command:

pkginfo -l <package instance>

The following shows an example of the pkginfo command for the environment package CSCOh022 Version 3.0(5).

Media Gateway Controller Security Package (CSCOh020)

The Media Gateway Controller Security package provides an optional script to enable/disable various services (remote root login, ftp, telnet, sudo) on the MGC Solaris platform for security purposes. This package is used for both the Sparc and Opteron platforms.

Hardware Test Package (CSCOh021)

The hardware test package provides an optional script needed to test the Cisco MGC hardware platforms with Sun verification test suite (VTS). This package is used for both Sparc and Opteron platforms.This optional script is preconfigured to provide adequate testing of the hardware.

This package can be optionally installed for use when hardware issues are suspected but because of space requirements should be uninstalled after use. Do not install this package on the Sun Fire X4600; it is not supported.

Table 2 Hardware Test Package

Package
Description

CSCOh021

VTS Hardware test package (optional)


Solaris 10 Patch Cluster—Sparc (CSCOh022)

The Solaris 10 patch cluster package CSCOh022 provides the required operational patches provided by Sun for the Sparc platform. CSCOh022 is required to ensure MGC functionality. Only one patch cluster package is needed; for Sparc use package CSCOh022, for Opteron use package CSCOh032.

Table 3 Solaris 10 Patch Cluster Package

Package
Description

CSCOh022

Cisco Solaris 10 patch cluster—Sparc (Required)


During installation of package CSCOh022, errors with a return code of 2 and 8 might display. These return codes are a part of normal installation and can be disregarded.

Removing the Solaris 10 Patch Cluster (CSCOh022) does not remove the Solaris patches that were installed when the /opt/sun_install/installPatches10 script was executed during a previous patch installation. For more information refer to the Cisco Media Gateway Controller Software Release 9 Installation and Configuration Guide. (Sun Solaris 10 Operating System Installation > Installing the Solaris 10 Patch Cluster (CSCOh022).

Solaris 10 Patch Cluster—Opteron (CSCOh032)

The Solaris 10 patch cluster packageCSCOh032 provides the required operational patches provided by Sun for the Opteron platform. Only one patch cluster package is needed; for Sparc use package CSCOh022, for Opteron use package CSCOh032.


Note If you install CSCOh032 release 3.0(6) on top of release 3.0(5), run the CSCOh032 installation script once and reboot the system. These instructions are available in the Cisco Media Gateway Controller Software Release 9 Installation and Configuration Guide. (Sun Solaris 10 Operating System Installation > Installing the Solaris 10 Patch Cluster (CSCOh032).

If you do NOT install CSCOh032 release 3.0(6) on top of release 3.0(5), you need to run the CSCOh032 installation script twice. First run the CSCOh032 installation script, then reboot the system. Then run the CSCOh032 installation script again and reboot the system. After the second reboot is complete, use the uname -a command to verify the patch level. If the patch level is 127128-11, CSCOh032 is successfully installed.

Solaris 10 DiskSuite (CSCOh023)

DiskSuite allows disk mirroring in systems that have two or more disks. Disk mirroring enables file system backup and recovery on a secondary disk if the primary disk fails or needs to be replaced.

The Solaris 10 DiskSuite scripts provide the specific steps needed to install Solstice DiskSuite on the Cisco PSTN Gateway 2200 (PGW 2200). This package is used for both Sparc and Opteron platforms.

Disk Suite, package CSCOh023, can only be installed on systems with disks larger than 18GB. If the disk is smaller than or equal to 18GB, Disk Suite fails.

Disk Suite supports 36, 73, and 146GB disk drives.

The installation procedure takes approximately 2 hours to complete.

Table 5 Solaris 10 DiskSuite Package

Package
Description

CSCOh023

Solaris 10 DiskSuite Scripts (Required)



Caution The order in which packages are installed on the system is important. In particular, DiskSuite must be installed before installing the CiscoMGC application (PGW). If the PGW application is already installed, the DiskSuite script will fail to run. Similarly, you must remove the PGW application before removing CSCOh023.


Caution Either Log/Spool or DiskSuite can be installed but you cannot install both packages on the same system.

For information on using the Solaris 10 DiskSuite scripts, refer to the Cisco Media Gateway Controller Software Release 9 Installation and Configuration Guide.

Log and Spool File Systems Patch (CSCOh024)

The log and spool file system package provides the scripts needed to configure the /opt/CiscoMGC/var/log and /opt/CiscoMGC/var/spool directories on a secondary disk. It allows a MGC to use the primary disk for the MGC application while allowing billing, alarms, and measurement information to be stored on a secondary disk. This configuration cannot be used if you use Disk Suite for disk mirroring.

This package can be optionally installed on only the Sparc platform. This package cannot be used if you have a disk that is larger than 18 GB.

Description

Solaris 10 Return Codes

When a patch cluster is installed, some individual patches might fail to install because they are already installed on the machine (as part of the Solaris 10 installation or as part of an earlier application of the patch cluster) or because the individual patch applies to an application which we do not install. For example, there are security patches for UUCP, but since we do not install UUCP on the machine, these patches fail to install. This is not considered an error as far as the installation process is concerned.

When an individual patch fails to install, a return code displays to indicate the reason the patch did not install. Table 4 lists the return codes for Solaris 10:
