The action that dupatch takes to reboot your system depends upon whether you used the command-line or menu-based interface or performed the action in single-user or multi-user mode. The following sections describe these actions.

Before rebooting, review the dupatch session log, /var/adm/patch/log/session.log, to ensure that the installation was successful. Note any special patch instructions, informational messages, and error messages. Certain patches may require you to take a particular action, such as running a script, before rebooting. (See Appendix A “Viewing Log files” for information about dupatch logs.)

In Single-User Mode

When performing a patch installation or removal in single-user mode from the command line, the system automatically reboots after the command line operation is completed.

When performing a patch installation or removal in single-user mode using the menu-based interface, dupatch asks if you want to reboot the system after the patch installation or removal is completed:

  • If you answer yes, the system reboots immediately.

  • If you answer no, dupatch returns to the appropriate menu — either installation or removal, depending on the operation.

In Multi-User Mode

When installing patches in multi-user mode from the command line, you are given a message informing you that a reboot is necessary to complete the patch installation. However, the system does not reboot itself.

When installing patches in multi-user mode using the menu-based interface, dupatch gives you three options if a reboot is necessary:

  • Reboot now

  • Schedule a reboot for a later time

  • Do not reboot
