Use this page to locate build and patch information for Calendar Server releases. If newer patch revisions become available, use the newer ones instead of those shown in the table.
As a workaround to learning about new patches, you can use the Confluence "watch" feature to monitor this page. When new patches are available, this page is updated with that information. You then receive an email message that this page has been updated. The "watch" feature is available under the Tools menu.
When you perform a fresh installation by using the Communications Suite installer (commpkg install), you install the current patch levels for Calendar Server. You use the commpkg upgrade command to upgrade to newer product releases. For more information, see the commpkg upgrade command, which is provided in the Communications Suite Installer zip file.
As newer patches become available between releases, you install them by using the patchadd command on Solaris, or the rpm command on Red Hat Linux. These patch commands run the related pre- and post-patch scripts to ensure proper patch installation.
If the patch installation fails during the pre-patch phase, you need to correct the problem and re-apply the patch. If the patch installation fails during the post-patch phase, you need to follow the instructions in the error message to manually resolve the problem.
The following table shows the patch history for Calendar Server 7.
