Hi Vineeth and Enda,

Thank you very much for your kind reply.

Patches with SUNW_PKG_ALLZONES=true means it applies on both global zone
and non global zone regardless inherited directory, These patches
include kernel patches, right ?

if non global zone is not inherited from global zone, and when the
parameter SUNW_PKG_ALLZONES=false, does it mean the patch with
SUNW_PKG_ALLZONES=false will not applied on both global zone and non
global zone.

Or SUNW_PKG_ALLZONES=false works together with other parameters (such as
SUNW_PKG_ALLZONES or SUNW_PKG_THISZONE) as the following description ?


In fact, I was confused by the description above. I am not sure link
above is available for the whole zone as Enda described below.

===snip from Enda description===
No, SUNW_PKG_ALLZONES means that the patch can only be applied from the
global zone, and will apply to all non global zones, regardless.
So it doesn't matter whether the zone is sparse or whole ( whole is
where there are no inherited dirs, as in your case ).

Thank you very much.
Best Regards
