  1. If I log in to Oracle support link to download the patches. It is pointing me to enter Support Identifier. Can use any trial support identifiers? if yes where can get Support Identifiers. For redhat 7.3 we can get temporary registration and we can work on patching the server similarly do we have any option for solaris 10 to get hands free in patching?
