Management Server installation on a core Solaris 10 host requires additional Solaris packages

When you attempt to install the Management Server on a host with core Solaris 10 installed, the installation fails. One or both of the following messages appear:

The installer could not locate the Solaris SUNWzoneu package or the file /usr/bin/zonename from the SUNWzoneu package on the target host. You must add the package or the file before you install CommandCentral Storage.

The installer could not locate the Solaris SUNWxcu4 package or the file /usr/xpg4/bin/sed from the SUNWxcu4 package on the target host. You must add the package or the file before you install CommandCentral Storage.

Before you install the Management Server, you need to install additional packages from the Solaris operating system CD.
