Solaris 10 3/05 through Solaris 10 11/06: If you are patching a package that was added by using the pkgadd command with the -G option, the package must be patched by using the patchadd command with the -G option. This restriction is removed in the Solaris 8/07 release.
You must be the global administrator in the global zone to perform this procedure.
Become superuser, or assume the Primary Administrator role.
Execute the patchadd command with the -Goption, followed by the patch ID.
global# patchadd -G patch_id
