|Oracle Solaris 10 9/10 Installation Guide: Solaris Live Upgrade and Upgrade Planning|
If you are already running the 10 3/05 release OS and have installed individual patches, upgrading to a subsequent Solaris 10 release causes the following:
Any patches that are supplied as part of one of the releases noted above are reapplied to your system. You cannot back out these patches.
Any patches that were previously installed on your system that are not included in one of the releases noted above are removed.
The Patch Analyzer performs an analysis on your system to determine which patches, if any, will be removed by upgrading to any of the above releases. The Patch Analyzer is available in the following formats.
If you are using the Solaris installation program to upgrade, the Patch Analyzer dialog box appears. Select Yes to perform the analysis.
If you are using the text installer to upgrade, select Analyze on the Analyze Patches dialog box to perform the analysis.
If you are using a custom JumpStart installation or Solaris Live Upgrade to upgrade, run the analyze_patches script to perform the analysis. For detailed instructions, see To Run the analyze_patches Script.
After you perform the analysis, refer to To Review the Patch Analyzer Output for detailed information about the patch analysis results.
