This document is used to demonstrate the package database is consistent and there is no package corruption or missing information.
- The patchadd and pkgadd utilities will yield errors if the package database is in an inconsistent state or if package information is missing.
- The patchadd and pkgadd process will fail if it detects missing files in the package database or missing information with the installed packages.
For troubleshooting and maintenance purposes, it may be necessary to demonstrate the package database is consistent and package information is not missing to ensure a successful patching process.
