How to Verify Your Packages

Immediately after installation, validate the installation by verifying your packages.

Before You Begin

You must assume the root role. For more information, see Using Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.2 .

  1. Review the installation log.
  2. Run the pkg verify command.

    To keep a record, send the command output to a file.

    # pkg verify > /var/pkgverifylog
  3. Review the log for any errors.
  4. If you find errors, reinstall from the media or fix the errors.
