- Always run the inutoc command to ensure the installation subsystem will recognize the new fix packages you download. This command creates a new .toc file for the fix package. Run the inutoc command in the same directory where you downloaded the package filesets. For example, if you downloaded the filesets to /usr/sys/inst.images, run the following command:
# inutoc /usr/sys/inst.images
- For selected updates
To install selected updates from this package, use the following command:
# smit update_by_fix
- For all updates
To install all updates from this package that apply to the installed filesets on your system, use the following command:
# smit update_allIt is highly recommended that you apply all updates from this package.
- Reboot the system. A reboot is required for this update to take effect.
