Sun Cluster 3.1 Data Services Developer's Guide

Packaging Directory

The install_directory/rt_name/pkg directory contains a Solaris package. The name of the package is a concatenation of the vendor name and the application name, for example, SUNWftp. The Makefile in the install_directory/rt_name/src directory supports creation of a new package. For example, if you make changes to the source files and recompile the code, or make changes to the package utility scripts, use the make pkg command to create a new package.

When you remove a package from a cluster, the pkgrm command can fail if you attempt to run the command from more than one node simultaneously. You can solve this problem in one of two ways:

If pkgrm fails because you attempt to run it simultaneously from multiple nodes, run it again from one node then run it from the remaining nodes.
