Use the installadm update-manifest command to replace the contents of the specified AI manifest or derived manifest script file with the contents of the manifest or script file for the specified install service. The criteria, default status, and manifest name are not changed as a result of the update.
The update-manifest subcommand validates XML manifest files before adding them to the install service.
The manifest must already exist in the specified service. Use the installadm list command to confirm, as shown in Example 8–38.
If no manifest is specified, then the manifest that is replaced is identified in one of the following ways:
The name attribute of the ai_instance element in the specified manifest, if this attribute is specified and if the value of this attribute matches the name of an existing manifest for this install service.
The base name of the specified file name if this name matches the name of an existing manifest for this install service.
This example updates the content of the sparc-ent manifest in the solaris11_2-sparc service with the content of ./mymanifests/manifest-new-sparc-ent.xml. The name of the manifest in installadm list is still sparc-ent.
# installadm update-manifest -n solaris11_2-sparc \ -f ./mymanifests/manifest-new-sparc-ent.xml -m sparc-ent
