hello, until now we have patched our solaris 10 systems (with many zones on all of them) with scripts, which run patchadd for every patch and 118833-36 was the last patch in the patchcluster, because of its "you must reboot now code" anybody knows.
after reading about pdo magic in this forum i have tried this with the patchcluster and KU 118833-36. with "patchadd -M `pwd`" pdo magic all patches were installed first in the global zone and after that in all non-global zones. when 118833-36 is installed in the global zone, patchadd failed to install the patches in the non-global zones. you get a completely patched global zone but all non-global zones are not patched. i have tried to install the patchcluster in the non-global zones to get all in sync but many patches are global-zones-only patches and so there is no documented way to install the patches with "patchadd" in the non-global zones. after the test i have removed the patchcluster and remain with the old "patchadd for every patch", which is slower but safer with the beast 118833-36. what about 120012-14, it is also a beast ? :) thanks mario This message posted from opensolaris.org _______________________________________________ zones-discuss mailing list email@example.com
