When you install a standard OS update that contains multiple Solaris packages in a tar file, follow these guidelines:
You can specify an optional installation script to control the installation, such as the installation order of the packages.
If you don't specify an installation script, the packages in the bundle are installed without any dependency checking and there is no guaranteed installation order.
The metadata from the first package is used to populate the OS update metadata. Metadata from the other packages are ignored and you are responsible to maintain this information.
You can attempt to uninstall the OS update with the unload update command, but no dependency checking is performed and the uninstall may fail.
When you install a custom OS update that contains multiple Solaris packages in a tar file, follow these guidelines:
You must provide an installation script used to perform the installation.
The installation script must determine the order of the package installations, including all dependences of the packages in the bundle.
You must provide the package metadata when copying the package bundle to the N1 System Manager. If an OS update consists of multiple packages, you can specify only one set of metadata.
You can attempt to uninstall the OS update with the unload update command, but this may not work and is not supported for custom OS updates.
