|Copying and Creating Oracle Solaris 11 Package Repositories Oracle Solaris 11 Information Library|
This section describes how to make a local copy of the Oracle Solaris 11 release package repository by copying the repository from an Internet location.
# pkgrepo create /export/repoSolaris11
Use the pkgrecv(1) command to copy the repository. This operation could affect your network performance. The time required for this operation to complete depends on your network bandwidth and connection speed. To copy the Oracle Solaris 11 release repository, approximately 7 GB of data is transferred.
Tip - For better performance, close applications that use a large amount of memory, and make sure your zpool capacity is less than 80%.
Use the zpool list command to view your zpool capacity.

After the repository is copied, the process does some finish work. After you see the “Completed” line, wait another few minutes until you get your prompt back. If you update this repository later, only the changes are copied, and the process might take much less time.
If the pkgrecv operation is interrupted, use the -c option to retrieve content that was already downloaded and resume the content download. The value of cache_dir is supplied in an informational message when the transfer is interrupted, as shown in the following example:
