Install a Solaris Patch Cluster

After the download, I'm now ready to install the patch cluster. I copied the cluster zip file into the /var/tmp directory.

#cd /var/tmp
#unzip J2SE_Solaris_8_Recommended.zip
#cd J2SE_Solaris_8_Recommended
#./install_cluster

Once the patch cluster is installed, you should perform a reboot.
#reboot

You can also install patches singly. This is an example of installing the Sun XVR-100 graphics accelerator patch.

#
cd /var/tmp
#unzip 114537-40.zip
#patchadd 114537-40

Thanx for having this page. This is my first time ever installing Solaris patches. I am a CCNA but have no prior UNIX skills. The sys admin, a decent guy, left me with a page of instructions but not how to unzip the cluster. I can't believe it was so easy, once again, T H A N X for your data.

cl, my intention is to share common UNIX information to whoever needs it.

Btw, I'm glad you found the post useful and thank you for the comment.
