What patch do i need to get my solaris 10 server to kernel 5.10-2008.10

I have a Solaris 10 server and need to update the kernel. This is to facilitate the upgrade of oracle from 10g to 11g.

Oracle pre-req check throws the following error -
This is a prerequisite condition to test whether the system kernel version is at least "5.10-2008.10".
Expected Value : 5.10-2008.10
Actual Value : 5.10-2006.11

I tried installing patch 137138-09 but was told it is already installed. Does anybody know what patch I need to get my kernel to 5.10-2008.10

Cheers Ganjos, that looks pretty scary. There is a tonne of patches within that download. Is there not 1 simple patch available for this?

No, in Solaris kernel upgrade just like Windows upgrade from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1. Kernel upgrade depand on many other patches to be upgraded, each of "other" patch in turn depand on some other patches, so on and so forth...

ok - i downloaded that patch set. i believe it is not correct, it looks like there are over 150 individual patches in there and every single one must be scrutinized before installation. I am 99.9 % certain that in the past, when this request came in, there was one single patch that needed installing and that would upgrade the kernel. Ok - there may also have been some dependencies that needed installing beforehand but at the most - maybe 10 or 15.

i am under pressure now to have that server kernel version upgraded. argh.

Well, if you have support contract, you can talk to Oracle support to see what they say. I am sure they will tell you the same thing as I said.
