|System Administration Guide: Oracle Solaris 8 Containers Oracle Solaris Legacy Containers|
Solaris 8 patches can be applied to the Solaris 8 environment from within the container, using the same process as on a standalone system. Obtain the patch and, while running in the solaris8 zone, run patchadd to install the patch. Note that because the kernel is actually a Solaris 10 kernel, patches that alter any Solaris 8 kernel bits will not take effect. In this case, the equivalent Solaris 10 patch should be applied in the global zone if needed. Even though Solaris 8 patches delivering kernel updates have no effect within the zone, they are still required to satisfy patch dependencies.
For more information on patching Solaris 8 systems, see Chapter 22 Patch Administration (Overview) in System Administration Guide, Volume 1.
