Creating local repository on Solaris 11.2 for upgrade from ISO image.

Hello guys.

I want to create a local repository on Solaris 11.2 for upgrade from ISO image. I already have ISO image copied to the server.

Any suggestions? How I can do the same?

A simple web search shows lots of tutorials. Have you tried any ? Where did you get stuck ?

Here's one to get you started.

Hello Honest Abe,

I solved this problem early next day after posting this thread. BTW, thanks for your response.

I had gone throw Unix arena method but they were using script. I did not want to use the same.

So, I used following method to create the local repo.

I created mnt point for ISO image as following:

#mount -F hsfs /Package/sol-11_3-repo-full.iso /mnt

then set the publisher name:

#pkg set-publisher -G '*' -g /mnt/repo solaris

then verifying the publisher:

#pkg publisher

Output of aforementioned command:
root@KanG:/mnt# pkg publisher
solaris origin online F file:///mnt/repo/

Using this method, I successfully done my job of updating the Solaris to 11.3.
However use of G will delete other repository if any present on server. So, use it accordingly.
