.../sun/install - aborting!

Hi all,
Server newly installed M5000 ..
OS - solaris 10.

so want to install as usual recommended patches ..
root@msdb# cd /mnt/sun/install
root@msdb# ./setup-standart.sh

You are not running this script from .../sun/install - aborting!

root@msdb#

I have seen it first time Smilie Have done a lot of initial installation ..but havent seen it ..

so in that script in which step it gives me this error :

--------------
BASE=""

if [ `/usr/bin/id | /usr/bin/cut -c-6` != 'uid=0(' ]
then
echo ""
echo "You are not running this script as user root - aborting!"
echo ""
exit 1
fi

if [ ! -f ../.release ]
then
echo ""
echo "You are not running this script from .../sun/install - aborting!"
echo ""
exit 1
fi

if [ ! -f profile-root ]
then
echo ""
echo "Please change directory to .../sun/install & try again"
echo ""
exit 1
fi
--------------------
as you see on line
if [ ! -f ../.release ]

so where is it looking release file ?

this script is under /mnt/sun/install
so it is lookin in /mnt/sun ?
or it will take path of BASE="" that is in begin of script?

so what causes this problem ?

Does /mnt/.release exist?

setup_standard.sh is not for installing patches. this is the setup programm from EIS-DVD to install scripts an other tools from sun. this is for authorized sun partner and sun personal only!
if you have access to EIS-DVD and you want to share it in your network, share the /cdrom/cdrom0 directory...

no of course .. iso image of EIS I mounted to /mnt
instead of /mnt there can be any other mount point ..

I think that you are looking for a script like: installbundle.sh

There should be a readme with the bundle...

NAME: Solaris 10 05/08 Patch Bundle

DATE: 29/05/2008

INTENT:
------

This patch bundle provides the equivalent set of patches that are pre-applied in
the Solaris 10 05/08 (Update 5) release image.

The rationale for making this patch bundle available results from customer
feedback.

Customers may find that new Sun hardware comes pre-installed with a later
Solaris 10 Update release than the Solaris 10 version running on other hardware
which the customer may already be using. Indeed, some new hardware may only be
supported from a specific Update release onwards.

Some customers have expressed the wish to bring all their systems up to the same

Yes I know for what this script, and I am Sun authorized partner Smilie but I do not want to share it .. I only want to run it .. I can not understand why does it search release in ../.release in another word in /mnt .. Lets say if i will not mount it to /mnt but will insert it normally to cdrom ..and it mounts it to /cdrom/cdrom0 so there also it will not find .release Smilie
