Solaris 8 Maintenance Update 7 Installation Guide


The MU7 may only be installed on a system running the Solaris 8, Solaris 8 6/00, Solaris 8 10/00, Solaris 8 1/01, Solaris 8 4/01, Solaris 8 7/01, or Solaris 8 10/01 operating environment.

Space requirements per file system vary depending on:

The install_mu script performs a space analysis and reports the space needed per file system, including back out space if applicable. The space calculations take several minutes to complete.

The install_mu script does not proceed if it determines that space is lacking in one or more file systems. Although the patch installation space needed is calculated fairly precisely, the backout data space need is estimated and the reported need may be higher than the actual need.

If you are certain that you have enough space to apply the patch set (and backout data if desired) and you want to bypass the space calculation, run install_mu with the -f option.
