Oracle System Assistant enables you to download updates of platform software. The updated components include firmware, drivers, and tools. With Oracle System Assistant, you no longer need to download and unpack firmware and software packages from a download site or use a Tools and Drivers CD/DVD or ISO image.
Use this procedure to update Oracle System Assistant.
Before You Begin
Ensure that the server has:
External web access to enable downloading of a new platform software release.
Download entitlement at My Oracle Support (MOS). See Configure MOS to Enable Oracle System Assistant Updates.
The Get Updates screen appears.
Note - To automatically check for updates each time the system is started, click the check box.
If an update is available, the update's readme file appears.
The Get Updates Sign In screen appears.
Enter your MOS credentials (username and password).
Note - The server must have download entitlement with MOS. If the sign-in process halts because Oracle System Assistant cannot verify entitlement, you need to configure MOS to enable Oracle System Assistant updates. See Configure MOS to Enable Oracle System Assistant Updates.
After the updates are downloaded, the system reboots.
