An error message " No such file or directory" may be seen when installing a BoKS hotfix within a Solaris Zone


When applying a hotfix to a BoKS installation in a Solaris Zone, an error message regarding a missing ROOT.tar archive may be seen, e.g.

tar: /var/tmp/new/HFBM-0030/BOKS6.7/BOKS6.7.0/Solaris-2.10-sparc/ROOT.tar: No such file or directory


Despite the error the installation of the hotfix should proceed normally. The error is caused by a bug in the hotfix installation program but does not cause any problems and can thus be ignored.

Note that this issue also affects:

  • BoKS Server Agent for Unix / Linux
