If it is of any help, here is my script I use to install the Recommended Patch Cluster for Solaris 10, from a jumpstart server running Solaris 9:
Code:
# Install the latest patch cluster
#
echo "Installing the latest patch cluster from Sun..."
mount -f nfs xx.xx.xx.xx:/export/install/Patches/10_Recommended /a/mnt
cd /a/mnt
for PATCH in `cat patch_order`
do
patchadd -M . -R /a $PATCH
done
cd /a
umount /a/mnt
echo "Patch cluster installed..."
Regards
