ProcedureTo Install Required Patches

  1. From the SunSolveSM web site, obtain the list of patches.

  2. Become superuser or assume an equivalent role.

    Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Configuring RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Security Services.

  3. Install the patches with the patchadd command.

  4. Reboot the system if necessary. Certain patches require a reboot to be effective.
