Rejecting a service update

When you reject an applied service update, the update files are removed from the system and the previous version of the software is restored.

Only service updates in the applied state can be rejected. You can use SMIT to reject applied service updates.

Rejecting a service update using SMIT:
Type smit reject on the command line.
Rejecting a service update from the command line:
Use the installp -r command to reject an applied update.
Attention: After the reject completes, if the system log files show the following message, indicating that a reboot is required, perform the reboot as soon as possible:
* * *  A T T E N T I O N  * * *
System boot image has been updated. You should reboot the 
system as soon as possible to properly integrate the changes 
and to avoid disruption of current functionality.
