Mild annoyance for snv_110 to snv_115

When LU'ing a buildbox from snv_110 to snv_115, I saw that 71 packages failed to add correctly to the new BE. The failure on pkgadd came with a message like this:



Doing pkgadd of SUNWgtk2 to /
28453 blocks
/a/var/sadm/pkg/SUNWgtk2/install/postinstall: /a/usr/share/desktop-cache/restart_fmri:
not found
pkgadd: ERROR: postinstall script did not complete successfully

Installation of failed.
pkgadd return code = 1




The workaround for this was to pkgadd the SUNWdesktop-cache package to my new BE's root (/.alt.snv_115 in my case), and then run


yes |pkgadd -R /.alt.snv_115 -d /net/installserver/export/nv/x/115/Solaris_11/Product `cat var/sadm/system/data/upgrade_failed_pkgadds`
