Problems: Installing this patch set to an alternate boot environment first requires the live boot environment to have patch utilities and other prerequisite patches

Installing this patch set to an alternate boot environment first requires the
live boot environment to have patch utilities and other prerequisite patches
at the same (or higher) patch revisions as those delivered by this patch set.

The required prerequisite patches can be applied to the live boot environment
by invoking this script with the '--apply-prereq' option, ie.

 ./installpatchset --apply-prereq --s10patchset

Solution

root@solaris10 # cd /mnt/var/tmp/10/10_x86_Recommended
root@solaris10 # ./installpatchset --apply-prereq --s10patchset
...
Installation of prerequisite patches complete.
...

Umount the BE

# luumount Solaris10-EIS-15JUL15

Activate BE & Reboot

# luactivate Solaris10-EIS-15JUL15
# init 6

Solaris 10 CPU with LiveUpgrade

Install LiveUpgrade (and some other necessary) Patches

In the unzipped CPU do:

root@solaris10 # ./installpatchset --s10patchset --apply-prereq

Create LiveUpgrade environment

In this example we use the CPU_2017-07:

root@solaris10 # lucreate -n Solaris_10-CPU_2017-07
...
Population of boot environment <Solaris_10-CPU_2017-07> successful.
Creation of boot environment <Solaris_10-CPU_2017-07> successful.

Apply the patchset to the LiveUpgrade environment

root@solaris10 # ./installpatchset --s10patchset -B Solaris_10-CPU_2017-07

Activate the new patched LiveUpgrade envinronment

root@solaris10 # luactivate Solaris_10-CPU_2017-07

Now you can reboot into it whenever you want, but it should be soon, because of things that will be only in this boot environment later like logs and such.
