The following sections describe messages you might see when running the dupatch patch deletion function.

Patch Removal Blocked by Missing Patch Backup Files


 

Source: dupatch deletion.

Problem: An attempt to remove a specific patch or all patches fails because the backup of the prepatch system files is not available to dupatch.

Causes: The /var/adm/patch/backup area does not contain the prepatch system files.

Action: Ensure that dupatch can access the/var/adm/patch/backup area and that the area is set up as it was when the patches were installed. For example, if you were using /var/adm/patch/backup as a mount point for another file system, make sure that file system is mounted. Once you have solved the /var/adm/patch/backup access or content problem, remove patches through the dupatch Delete Menu.

Output:

    Checking patch dependency...
       (depending upon the number of patches you select, this may take a while)
     -------------------------------------------------------------------------

      - DIGITAL_UNIX_V4.0F / Commands, Shells, & Utility Patches:
             Patch 0019.00 - quota Command Correction

      cannot be deleted.

      Can not find the backup copy for this patch in /var/adm/patch/backup.

     -------------------------------------------------------------------------
        * Following patch(es) failed in dependency check:

      - DIGITAL_UNIX_V4.0F / Commands, Shells, & Utility Patches:
             Patch 0019.00 - quota Command Correction

Patch Removal Blocked by Dependencies on Other Patches


 

Source: dupatch deletion.

Problem: A specific patch cannot be removed because of its dependency on other installed patches.

Causes: Generally this occurs when you miss the selection of all dependent patches.

Action: Through the dupatch Delete Menu, reselect the patches including the noted dependent patch and try to remove them. The program will notify you of any other dependent patches you might have missed.

Output:

    Checking patch dependency...
       (depending upon the number of patches you select, this may take a while)
     -------------------------------------------------------------------------

      - DIGITAL_UNIX_V4.0F / Library Patches:
             Patch 0262.00 - libm Corrections

     can not be deleted unless the following patches are also selected or
     deleted first:

      - DIGITAL_UNIX_V4.0F / Library Patches:
             Patch 0676.00 - libm Corrections

      -------------------------------------------------------------------------

         * Following patch(es) failed in dependency check:

       - DIGITAL_UNIX_V4.0F / Library Patches:
              Patch 0262.00 - libm Corrections

No Original Files Restored When Patch Is Removed


 

Source: dupatch deletion.

Problem: The removal of a specific patch results in no original system files being restored.

Causes: This occurs when a patch delivers files to your system that were not shipped in the initial release of the product. For example, the sample output shows the removal of Tru64 UNIX 4.0F Patch 314.00; the patch delivers files that were not shipped with the initial release of Tru64 UNIX 4.0F.

Action: This is an informational message and no further action is required.

Output:

=== Deleting "DIGITAL UNIX V4.0F":

     Deleting "Patch: AdvFS Command Correction " (OSFPAT00031400425).
     -------------------------------------------------------------------------

     Patch OSFPAT00031400425 delivered all new files to your system
     so there are no original files to be restored.
     No user action is necessary.
