Checking Package Information on a Solaris System With Zones Installed

You can query the software package database for the global zone and non-global zones by using the pkginfo command. See the pkginfo(1) man page for more information about this command.

How to Check Package Information in the Global Zone Only

  • To check the software package database for the global zone only, use pkginfo followed by the package name.
    global% pkginfo package_name
Example 25-1 Using the pkginfo Command in the Global Zone
global% pkginfo SUNWcsr SUNWcsu
system      SUNWcsr Core Solaris, (Root)
system      SUNWcsu Core Solaris, (Usr)

How to Check Package Information in a Specified Non-Global Zone Only

  • To check the software package database in a specific non-global zone, log into the non-global zone and use pkginfo followed by the package name.
    my-zone% pkginfo package_name
Example 25-2 Using the pkginfo Command in a Non-Global Zone
my-zone% pkginfo SUNWcsr SUNWcsu
system      SUNWcsr Core Solaris, (Root)
system      SUNWcsu Core Solaris, (Usr)
