Removing a Solaris Patch Cluster
Posted: 2 Jun 05
Figured this would be usefule for people that are new.
Uninstalling a patch cluster is pretty simple if you used the install_cluster script. Perform these steps to get your system back to previous status. Pretty much reverses the patch_order file and loops through it.
*Note: Keep in mind sometimes this is not a full-proof solution you might have to hit the backup tapes also.
Copy and Paste Below
PATH=/usr/bin:/usr/sbin ; export PATH
# Change this to where your patches are located
# Reverse the order of the patch_order file
tail -r patch_order > remove_order
# Loop through and remove each patch listed
for PATCH in `cat reverse_order`
