Earlier this year, oracle released there first version of Oracle Database Firewall. Since a couple of week’s now a bunch of patches are available. The latest seems to be available since today. As usual the patch can be obtained through the Patch Search on My Oracle Support.
The patches are delivered as a ZIP archive with misc RPM. These RPM’s have to be copied onto the Database Firewall or the Management Server. As soon as this is done the can be installed with rpm as root. After a reboot the update is complete. By the way, to be able to copy the patch’s and access the system via ssh / command line, terminal access has to be enabled in the system configuration (DB Firewall Web Console).
Installing the latest patch on the Database Firewall would be done according the following procedure :
rpm --freshen --repackage dbfw-multi-5.0-134.i686.rpm
/bin/ls /var/spool/repackage -t | /usr/bin/head -n1 \
Don’t forget to review the readme.txt before installing any patch. It’s a text file very short and readable within seconds
