    Installation of RSYNC on Solaris

    RSYNC

    1. Download Solaris Update 13.
    2. Mount ISO.

    .
    Installation of <SUNWrsync> was successful.

    To Remove Packages With pkgrm

    Log in to the installed or updated system and become superuser:


    # su
    Remove one or more packages from the system:


    # /usr/sbin/pkgrm pkgid
    Where pkgid is the name of the software package you want to remove from the installed system. For example, SUNWrsync.

    At each prompt, type y, n, or q to specify that you want to remove the package, not remove the package, or quit.

    When you're done, use the pkgchk command to verify that the package was removed correctly:


    # /usr/sbin/pkgchk -v pkgid
    If the package was not removed correctly, pkgchk returns a warning message.

    Make sure that RSYNC is in the /usr/bin directory. To check, enter the command which rsync. You will get one of two responses:
    /usr/bin/rsync—RSYNC is in the correct directory.
    <install directory/rsync>—RSYNC is not in the correct directory; enter cp <install directory/rsync> /usr/bin to copy it to the correct directory.
    Repeat this procedure, starting at step 2 for each Solaris host.
