No problem, there ere a lot of issues with patching and zones in the earlier patch tools patches, having the most recent rev that's on SunSolve is a prerequisite for zones patching as such.

Thanks Enda. We were at rev 24 of 119254, once rev 34 was applied it worked as expected.

How do you update the DST patch on a whole root zone? Patch # 122032-03 has been applied to the global zone but it does not appear to have been
passed to the non global zone. On the global zone the time stamps on
the files included in that patch are changed. On the non global zone
the files have not been updated. When attempting to patch the non
global zone directly a failure occurs:

Patch 122032-03 is for global zone only - cannot be installed on non-global zone.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Bill

on my FCS system with one whole root and one sparse root zone
plus the latest patch utilties patch added

I added 122032-03, which has the following pkgmap excerpt:

1 f none usr/share/lib/zoneinfo/Africa/Bamako 0644 root bin 95 4581 1167290851 usr/share/lib/zoneinfo/Africa/Timbuktu=../../../../../usr/share/lib/zoneinfo/Africa/Bamako

After patchadd, my global zone has
# ls -li /usr/share/lib/zoneinfo/Africa/Bamako /usr/share/lib/zoneinfo/Africa/Timbuktu 847 -rw-r--r-- 2 root bin 95 Dec 28 07:27 /usr/share/lib/zoneinfo/Africa/Bamako 847 -rw-r--r-- 2 root bin 95 Dec 28 07:27 /usr/share/lib/zoneinfo/Africa/Timbuktu
# zlogin whole-4
[Connected to zone 'whole-4' pts/3]

# ls -li /usr/share/lib/zoneinfo/Africa/Bamako /usr/share/lib/zoneinfo/Africa/Timbuktu 375312 -rw-r--r-- 2 root bin 95 Dec 28 07:27 /usr/share/lib/zoneinfo/Africa/Bamako 375312 -rw-r--r-- 2 root bin 95 Dec 28 07:27 /usr/share/lib/zoneinfo/Africa/Timbuktu

which matches the pkgmap from the patch
# echo "0t1167290851=Y" | adb
                2006 Dec 28 07:27:31
where 1167290851 is the timestamp from the patch package for this file

Prior to installing this patch I had

# ls -li /usr/share/lib/zoneinfo/Africa/Timbuktu usr/share/lib/zoneinfo/Africa/Bamako 373975 -rw-r--r-- 1 root bin 73 Jan 21 2005 /usr/share/lib/zoneinfo/Africa/Timbuktu 373932 -rw-r--r-- 1 root bin 95 Jan 21 2005 usr/share/lib/zoneinfo/Africa/Bamako

So these files are now hardlinks, as opposed to regular files.

Seems the patch applied ok for me.

my zonecfg for whole-4 is
# zonecfg -z whole-4 export
create -b
set zonepath=/export/zones/whole-4
set autoboot=true
add net
set address=
set physical=bge1

The latest patch utilites patch is


What rev of these have you got installed?
