Installing / applying an IDR Pkg(patch) Using a .p5p in Solaris 11.x

First we need to get the list of packages included in the p5p
pkg list -g file:////var/tmp/idr793.1.p5p
NAME (PUBLISHER)                                  VERSION                    IFO
idr793                                            1                          ---
Then install the patch / package
pkg install -g file:////var/tmp/idr793.1.p5p idr793
If the above steps is not working, then you might need to unset the soalris publisher and set the p5p s as your publisher, an example is below. First unset the solaris repo
pkg unset-publisher -g "*" solaris
Then set the IDR .p5p as your publisher
pkg set-publisher -p /var/tmp/idr793.1.p5p solaris
Now you are ready to install / apply the IDR.
pkg install idr793
Note: Some times un-setting the Solaris repo is not necessary, then the below process will also work (especially if its not a solaris repo) You might still need to Disable the publishers that are not reachable as package install may fail if any of the already added repositories are unreachable. Adding a file-based repository on the Solaris system.
pkg set-publisher -p /tmp/install/idr931.1.p5p idr931.1
Then, install the required packages.
pkg install idr793
Once done, unset the temporarily publisher.
pkg unset-publisher idr931
