Solaris 11/06 at that time. Because we don't really known the exact
procedure to follow to update the
miniroot accordingly, and because
these machines must be provisioned very quickly, we doesn't investigate
much on that way (ending installing them with DVD-ROMs, in servers
room). Now, after reading the proposed
we will certainly take the time to do so... if we know how to get the
proper bundle of patches to correct our bug.
