    Solaris Patch Catalog - Online mode

    Gurneet Singh Chopra



      I already have existing Solaris repository which is having 130 Gigs of patches (configured with last update catalog run). Now if I update my Solaris patch catalog in online mode giving path to the existing repository,some of the patches will be “Obsoleted” by updating the catalog as new patch set is here and many patches will be added as well to the existing repository.


      So the question is, will some of the unwanted/obsolete patches get deleted from the repository automatically or only additions will be made to the repository?


      Repository is already occupying 130 Gigs with last update and if only additions are made to the repository on catalog update and no patches are removed automatically by update catalog, I will run out of SAN.


      Appreciate your response on this. Thanks.
