Help required to install packages

Hi All,

I was told to install multiple packages on my solaris server. Is it possible to install multiple packages from a directory or CD. Or I need to install one by one.

Please suggest.

change to the dir with your packages and try:

# pkgadd -d .

if this doesn't work, you can write a loop to install the packages.
