How can the embedded Java version be upgraded independently in the Veritas Operations Manager Unix product from Veritas?

Problem

Java is embedded within the Veritas Operations Manager (VOM) application and requires manual steps to upgrade to work with the application.

Error Message

There are many scans that can alert to vulnerabilities in a Java / JRE version and a patch would be required to upgrade the VOM application to the latest available Java version from Oracle.

Cause

Java / JRE is embedded within the CCS application and the installer for Java updater updates a standalone installation

Solution

Supported OS:
These versions of the JRE list for Unix are supported on:
Oracle Solaris 10 Update 9 or later OS.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.5+, 6.x+ and Suse Linux Enterprise Server 10 SP2, 11.x
