As part of the security/hardening measures of my current project, we are required to update every software component to the latest with patches.
It's time to say bye-bye to Sun Java System Web Server branding.
However, the upgrade experience wasn't pleasant... *Sigh*
Very strange - "Cannot upgrade the product from version 7.0U8 to 7.0.10"
How can it be? This is not how Sun product works ... Every release should have a proper upgrade path. It has always been so.
What's the hack then?
Step 1: Go to /appl/opt/webserver7/setup
Step 2: Edit WebServer.inf
Step 3: Remove 8 from PRODUCT_SP_VERSION
Step 4: Remove U8 from PRODUCT_FULL_VERSION
Step 5: Done
Welcome to Oracle iPlanet Web Server 7.0.10!
