Solaris 10 patch update

I haven't patched Solaris for a while and now I need to learn to do patching.
I used to did patchadd command to run one by one. I think better to do
live upgrade. Can I download it to local box, and then we can do live upgrade?

Yes, you can do "live patching" similar to this:


You need a spare internal disk with the same size of your OS disk.
You use patchadm or pkgadd... or update-manager GUI
PS move from sun to oracle added paywalls and broke certificate chains, you might need to install latest patchset (10u10) using DVD as a patch source for that.
