Installing software in the system WPAR
To install software inside the system WPAR, you must have writable file systems.
These file systems can be private /usr and /opt, or a required file system for an
application installation. The process for installing in the system WPAR is exactly
the same as in the global environment, but you do not need to synchronize.
Simply install using installp, smit, or your application’s scripts.
4.4 Backing up, restoring, and cloning WPARs
This section describes common methods of backing up and restoring WPARs
and the global environment. It also provides examples that show methods for
cloning WPARs.
4.4.1 Backup considerations
When backing up WPARs and the global environment in which the WPAR runs,
there are certain considerations to be aware of.
To back up the global environment, use the regular tools.
Note: Certain application installation scripts search for particular devices. If
the your application’s scripts fail inside the WPAR, consider installing in the
global environment.
