Hi Elizabeth This cluster should have worked, I will check what rev of patch utils is included.
The cluster would have installed a pretty recent rev of patch utils towards the start, which should have been able to patch your system. There is no need to apply the patch utilites outside of the cluster generally, unless you are applying a cluster that is not recent, although I do recommend checking SunSolve to see what the latest rev of 119254 or 119555 is ( SPARC|x86 patch utils patch ), if there is a more recent one, I'd suggest applying it beforehand though. Do you have any logs from the failure, or even remember what the error was approximately, We'd like to identify the issue if possible, as without some data it's hard to say what might have happened. There is an issue currently open around patchadd not properly resolving mountpoints in relation to adding 120011-14, but without some data it's not possible to tell. But I suspect the problem you had is slightly different, as it this case it appears that the patch partially applied?, whereas in the case I described the patch would have failed to apply to start with.
