Hi, Is there a way of adding packages to an already generated SRT? 

I am attempting to add in SUNWgzip package using bmrsrtadm. 

 

 

Enter your selection (1-8) [8] : 5
Allow user interaction during installation? (y/n) : y
Enter the package/fileset/patch to be added in SRT or blank to return : SUNWgzip
Enter a [hostname:]/pathname containing the SUNWgzip package image [/var/tmp/9_Recommended/116340-09] : /
[Error] V-125-696 Cannot find valid package at //SUNWgzip.
[Error] V-125-93 Error during installation - package not added.
Enter the package/fileset/patch to be added in SRT or blank to return : 116340-09
Enter a [hostname:]/pathname containing the 116340-09 patch image [/var/tmp/9_Recommended/116340-09] : 
[Error] V-125-697 Cannot find valid patch at /var/tmp/9_Recommended/116340-09/116340-09.
[Error] V-125-93 Error during installation - package not added.

You are not entering correct location of SUNWgzip package. i.e.

"/var/tmp/9_Recommended/116340-09"

Looks like you are providing location that contains SUNWgzip patch and not base package.

You can find base package in your solaris CD/DVD/image.

Thanks.

I mounted Solaris iso image using lofiadm and installed package from directory  /Solaris9/Solaris_9/Product and it worked.
