The following example shows the use of the dupatch command and several of its options to install the Version 5.1B-3 patch kit:
/usr/sbin/dupatch -install -kit - license /patch/pk5/patch_kit -name Betty -note \
"installing pk5" -product all -patch all
When installing a new kit, the first time you invoke the dupatch command with the -installor -install -precheck_only options you will install the latest patch tools.
The following example shows the use of the dupatch command to remove the Version 5.1B-3 patch kit:
/usr/sbin/dupatch -delete -name Joe -note "removing pk" \
-product all -patch T64V51BB26AS0005-20050211
The new patch tools cannot be loaded using the delete command on the command line. Doing that will cause the following error to be displayed:
product_map does not exist or is empty, Cannot continue.
To install the new tools, first issue the install command with the -precheck_only option. This will load the tools and not cause changes to your system. You can then use the delete command.
