If you try to update the Solaris catalog for Package Manager you might face the following issue:
Catalog refresh error:
Only 0 out of 1 catalogs successfully updated.
Unable to contact valid package repository
Encountered the following error(s):
Unable to contact any configured publishers.
This is likely a network configuration problem.
Framework error: code: 6 reason: Couldn't resolve host 'pkg.oracle.com'
URL: 'http://pkg.oracle.com/solaris/release'. (happened 4 times)
In most cases this is due to the Proxy you are sitting behind …
A possible workaround to this is the following:
- connect as root
- start a Terminal
TSF is your domain
myaccount is your user account
mypwd is your user password
proxy.3sixtyfive.net is your proxy
8080 is your proxy port
The Package Manager will start and you can get updates.
