Directory on /var/adm/crash/

Hi Guys!!
The server:

has a folder name it:
/var/adm/crash/PatchesDP

The contents on this folder has this kind of files:

Probably.

My guess would be that someone used that as a staging area for installing these 2 patches. If the patches are installed, then you can safely remove them.

Re: Directory on /var/adm/crash/

hi,

ask your colegues if you can delete it,

but i think you can, because this could be forgotten files from some admin.

i could be patches required for Data Protector,

/var/adm/crash/ has another purpouse, but if you don't have enough space for patches could be also temporary located anywhere.
