If you have an active Oracle support plan, you have access to the support package repository so that you can routinely update your Oracle Solaris 11 systems. Updates to the support repository are called Support Repository Updates (SRUs) and they occur on a regular basis. SRUs take the place of maintenance updates or patch bundles that are available for Oracle Solaris 10 releases. Subsequent Oracle Solaris 11 releases are made available in the support repository or a release repository that provides the currently available OS. Note that SRUs apply to the current release and are generally not provided for previous Oracle Solaris 11 releases. See How to Configure Access to the Oracle Solaris Support Repository.
If you need to access an IPS repository on a system that has zones installed by using https_proxy and http_proxy, see Proxy Configuration on a System That Has Installed Zones in Creating and Using Oracle Solaris Zones. See also Specifying a Proxy in Adding and Updating Software in Oracle Solaris 11.3.
