patch update and break mirror

Hi All,

How do you know if you need to break the mirror on solaris 8 patch update?

Here's the patch example, 117350-54. On the site, it's just a low type update and not a medium or critical.

Is breaking a mirror a best practice only or really a requirement to some patch?

Thanks,
itik

I just read the instructions for that patch and I see nothing indicating a requirement to break the mirrors to install the patch. I have never broken a mirror to install a patch and the very idea seems to be very poor practice to me.
