Removing a Patch

To remove a patch, use the patchrm command. For example to remove the 119784-17 patch, perform the following steps:

  1. Become superuser.

  2. Remove the patch.

    # patchrm 119784-17

To verify that the patch was removed, you can run the patchadd command with the -p option and search for the specific patch Id. The command should not return any results. For example:

# patchadd -p | grep 119784-17
