Downloads on My Oracle Support are grouped by product family, then product, then version. The version contains one or more downloads (patches).
For servers and blades, the pattern is similar. The product is the server. Each server contains a set of releases. These releases are not true software product releases, but releases of updates for the server. These updates are called software releases and comprise several downloads, all tested together. Each download contains firmware, drivers, or utilities.
My Oracle Support has the same set of download types for this server family as shown in the following table. These can also be requested through a physical media request (PMR). The same firmware and software can also be downloaded using Oracle System Assistant.
Each of the downloads is a zip file that contains a Read Me and a set of subdirectories containing firmware or software files. The Read Me file contains details on the components that have changed since the prior software release and the bugs that have been fixed. For more details on the directory structure of these downloads, refer to the Sun Blade X3-2B (formerly Sun Blade X6270 M3) Administration Guide.
