Accidentally removed SUNWcsr

I have accidentally removed the SUNWcsr, SUNWhea as well as SUNWmdb and SUNWmdbx while the most unfortunate thing is the network connection breaks which makes me unable to login to the system again. How can I install  those package back?

I have then reboot the server and of coz it won't boot and keep on having core dump. I have then boot to single user mode using the installation cd and then fix the disk using fsck. After that, I then tried to mount the disk using "mount /dev/dsk/c1t0d0s0 /a" and it works.

I can then locate the SUNWcsr while when I issue the command "pkgadd -R /a -d . SUNWcsr" it compained with "error: unable to open admin file <default> "

What can I do now?

Hi there!
 create a file:
/var/sadm/install/admin/default
with the following content:


mail=<your email here>
instance=unique
partial=ask
runlevel=ask
idepend=ask
rdepend=ask
space=ask
setuid=ask
conflict=ask
action=ask
basedir=default

Cheers,

Actually, I can only boot up to single user mode using cdrom and I suppose the whole file system is read only except the one I mount using /a?

Do you mean to create the default file under /a/var/sadm/install/admin/default instead?

When you run pkgadd from a cd boot and rw mount your root partition, ensure you specify the alternate root path using the -R option to pkgadd.
