Removing Patches on a Solaris System With Zones Installed
The patchrm system utility described in the patchrm(1M) man page is used to
remove patches on a system with zones installed.
Using patchrm in the Global Zone
As the global administrator, you can use the patchrm utility in the global
zone to remove patches. The patchrm utility cannot remove patches from the global
zone only or from a subset of the non-global zones.
Using patchrm in a Non-Global Zone
As the zone administrator, you can use the patchrm utility in a non-global
zone to remove patches from that non-global zone only. Patches cannot affect areas
that are shared.
