I have to test a live uprade patch with solaris 10. But it looks like its not running as it expected i beleive. It shows some dependency issue.

I have downloaded the latest Patch bundle. and doing the following way in luupgrade step. env2 is my ABE

root@server1 # luupgrade -n env2  -s /solpatches/10_Recommended/patches -t `cat patch_order`

Validating the contents of the media </solpatches/10_Recommended/patches>.
The media contains 385 software patches that can be added.
All 385 patches will be added because you did not specify any specific patches to add.
Mounting the BE <env2>.
Adding patches to the BE <env2>.
Validating patches...

Loading patches installed on the system...

Done!

Loading patches requested to install.

Done!

No patches to dependency check.
Unmounting the BE <env2>.
The patch add to the BE <env2> completed with Warnings.
root@server1 #

Any idea what is missing here.

I have a doc about how to live patching in Solaris 9 enviroment, should be similar to Solaris 10:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Unix/A_3840-Live-Patching-for-the-Solaris-9-Operating-System.html

Bassiclly you need to mount the "env2" by "lumount env2" command, and use this command to do it:

# /var/tmp/patches/install_cluster -R /.alt.env2

"luupgrade" usually I used for upgrade the OS, here -s is point to new OS image.

Thanks
I tried with the way you shared.. But now i am into different issues.

#./installpatchset -B env2 --s10patchset

Installing this patch set to an alternate boot environment first requires the
live boot environment to have patch utilities and other prerequisite patches
at the same (or higher) patch revisions as those delivered by this patch set.

The required prerequisite patches can be applied to the live boot environment
by invoking this script with the '--apply-prereq' option, ie.

 ./installpatchset --apply-prereq --s10patchset

 #

So i tried to install prereq

# ./installpatchset --apply-prereq --s10patchset

Setup .


Recommended OS Patchset Solaris 10 SPARC (2015.01.26)

This is patch 120900-04 readme file:
https://updates.oracle.com/readme/120900-04

It is safe to skip this patch by comment out in the patch list. Later on you can re-apply this patch by
# patchadd /var/spool/patch/120900-04.
