If you are using patch tar files obtained via the Internet (see “Patch Process Resources”), you must expand the tar file to access the patch kits. The tar file can be expanded on any mountable file system. The following list describes procedure:
Mount the file system and create a directory.
# /usr/sbin/mount /dev/disk/dsk3g /patches
# cd /patches
# mkdir pk5
Copy or ftp the patch kit to the directory you created. For example:
# cp T64V51BB26AS0005-20050215.tar /patches/pk5
Untar the patch kit, capturing the process to a log file. For example:
# script untar.log
# tar -xpvf /patches/pk5/T64V51BB26AS0005-20050215.tar
View the untar.log for errors or failures untarring the file.
