\* Analyzing a patchadd or patchrm Failure in the Solaris OS: Gather and analyze information to determine why a patchadd or patchrm session failed on systems that run the Solaris OS for SPARC or x86 platforms.

\* How to Split a Root Mirrored With Solaris Volume Manager Prior to Updating Software: Here is the correct way to split a Solaris Volume Manager mirror prior to updating the software through upgrades or software updates (patches).

\* How to Remove a Solaris Patch While Booted From a Network or CD-ROM: Find out how to run patchrm from a network or CD-ROM against a non-live system that is mounted from such media, or how to mount file systems under the mount point after the system is booted from the media.
