SmartUpdate 3.3.0.0

You will no longer be able to download the patches using SmartUpdate..!

Which means you will no longer be facing any problems with logging into SmartUpdate eitherūüôā

SmartUpdate now works only in offline mode.

i.e It is similar to the bsu command line tool now.

Now that you do not have the ” Get Patches ” tab in Smart Update there is a new link ¬†” ¬†Recommended Patch Advisor ” ¬†in the ” Patches & Updates ” tab ( in support site ) to get the list of recommended patches for your server.

Below are the steps to download a patches if you know the BUG number or patchID :

– Login to support site

– Click on ” Patches & Updates ” tab

– Now click on the ” Product or Family ( Advanced ) ¬†” tab

– In the drop down menu for ” Product ” select ” Oracle Weblogic Server ”

– Select your Weblogic Version in the ” Release ” tab.

– Select your platform in the ” Platform ” tab.

– Now click on the ” + ” symbol to add a ” new search filter ”

– From the drop down menu that comes up select ” Description ” –> ” Contains ” –> ” < Enter BUG number> / < patch ID > ” to download the patch.

The patch that you download is usually a zip file which contains a <PatchID>.jar and a patch-catalog_xxxx.xml file.

You need to copy both the jar file and the patch-catalog_xxx.xml file to your ” cache_dir ” folder ( Eg :¬†D:\bea1033\utils\bsu\cache_dir )

Note : If you already have a patch-catalog.xml file under cache_dir folder then rename it ( i.e take a backup )

Now rename the new patch-catalog_xxx.xml that you have downloaded to patch_catalog.xml

– Start SmartUpdate

– Your patch should be visible under ” Downloaded Patches ” panel.

– Now click on apply next to the patch and once the patch is applied you should be able to see it under ” Default ” tab.

– To remove a patch you just need to click on the ” remove ” button next to the patch.
