Solaris 2.6 SNMPDX patch 106787-02

Post by Mike Peters » Wed, 11 Nov 1998 04:00:00

As per the recent security alert about SNMPDX, I'm trying to install
patch 106787-02, but it bombs:

  /tmp/106787-02# ./installpatch .

  WARNING: /usr/sbin/patchadd is being used to install this patch.
  Installpatch will be removed from Solaris patches in
  the next release of Solaris.

  Checking installed patches...
  One or more patch packages included in
  106787-02 are not installed on this system.

  Patchadd is terminating.

Any ideas what it doesn't like (or how to find out), and how to force
it to install the parts of the package that are installed?

Solaris 2.6 SNMPDX patch 106787-02

Sun doesn't provide a patch to fix this bug in this bundled package.
Instead, you need to install the new version as per the announcement.

The patch you downloaded is for a newer unbundled version than Sun
provided with the 2.6 base OS.

I dont understand why Sun doesnt provide a patch.



1. Solaris 2.6 and Recommended patch Cluster 1999.02.10

Pretty simple situation:  Installed 2.6 SPARC to ServerA; could ping ServerA
from another server (ServerB).  

After installing the recommended patch cluster, couldn't ping anymore.

Routes look good - can ping own interfaces - just can't ping others.


Many thanks in advance.
