I downloaded amanda-enterprise-2.6.4-installer-sparc.bin and AmandaEnterpriseBackupServer-2.6.4p2-Sun-10-sparc.pkg. The procedure given to install the patch is

# pkgrm [AmandaBackupServer 2.6.4 package]
# pkgadd -d [AmandaBackupServer 2.6.4p2 package]

I am not sure what the first line "pkgrm" is to remove? When I tried to run the second line like
pkgadd -d AmandaEnterpriseBackupServer-2.6.4p2-Sun-10-sparc.pkg

I was not able to install update 2.6.4p2.

Please help.

I guess you do not have Amanda 2.6.4 installed on the server. The steps required in case you do not have Amanda installed is

1. Run amanda-enterprise-2.6.4-installer-sparc.bin
2. Uninstall amanda package
pkgrm AmandaEnterpriseBackupServer-2.6.4
3. Install amanda patch
pkgadd -d AmandaEnterpriseBackupServer-2.6.4p2-Sun-10-sparc.pkg

If you run into problems, please open a case in Zmanda network.

thanks,
