Timezone Data Patch

Will be doing a DST patch tonight around 9:00pm tonight for Sydney servers.

Basically, what needs to be done is to donwload the timezone data patch (109809-09), unzip and install.

Installing patch:

Installing the patch is as simple as executing ‘patchadd’. Since this will be on a Solaris 5.8, I’ll just be doing

#patchadd /path/to/patch/dir/109809-09

README says:

For Solaris 7-10 releases, refer to the man pages for instructions
on using ‘patchadd’ and ‘patchrm’ scripts provided with Solaris.
Any other special or non-generic installation instructions should be
described below as special instructions. The following example
installs a patch to a standalone machine:

example# patchadd /var/spool/patch/104945-02

The following example removes a patch from a standalone system:

example# patchrm 104945-02

For additional examples please see the appropriate man pages.
