make package from an installed package

make package from an installed package

A long time ago I installed a package. Now I want to install Solaris 2.6
I have to install that specific package again, but I have lost my CD
where the  .pkg was on.
The only thing I can do is somehow create a new package from the
information on my machine.

In /var/sadm/pkg/ :

ls -lR <packagename>
total 6
drwxr-xr-x   2 root     other        512 Apr  1  1997 install
-rw-r--r--   1 root     other        505 Apr  1  1997 pkginfo
drwxr-xr-x   2 root     other        512 Apr  1  1997 save

total 14
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     other        235 Mar 21  1996 YMTRANS.TBL
-rw-r--r--   1 root     other         29 Mar 20  1996 preremove
-rw-r--r--   1 root     other        367 Mar 20  1996 r.devlink
-rw-r--r--   1 root     other       3277 Mar 20  1996 request

total 0

How do I do this.?



1. Why are some packages installed in all zones for Solaris 10, but some packages are not ?


We are installing some packages onto a Solaris 10 environment which is
configured with three zones in total.

For some reason, a certain package is always installed in all three zones
(global, zone1, zone2), but the other packages are only installed in the
global zone.

For all packages, we have set:

The command we run (in global zone) is:

# pkgadd -d <whatever> <pkgname>

Our question is:
why is this package installation behaviour different from the other
packages, when everything seems to be the same ?
