When trying to install the package on Solaris 11 SPARC machine, I am getting a general failure:

pkg install: The following pattern(s) did not match any allowable packages. Try using a different matching pattern, or refreshing publisher information:
splunkforwarder-6.2.4-271043-solaris-8-sparc.pkg

When I review the package install history, I have these details:

I am at a loss to understand the failure at this point.

Hello,

there is a mistake up there on the pkg install .....

It is as simple as pkg install splunkforwarder since the publisher and has already been setup

Well, finally figured it out with help.

You need to set the publisher definition up first (further steps are as follows):

pkg set-publisher -p /tmp/install/splunkforwarder-6.2.4-271043-solaris-11-sparc.p5p splunk

Test the package:
pkg install -nv splunkforwarder

Install:
pkg install ./splunkforwarder-6.2.4-271043-solaris-11-sparc.p5p splunk

Verify installed (two commands):
pkg list -v splunkforwarder
FMRI IFO
pkg://splunk/application/splunkforwarder@6.2.4,271043:20150626T044039Z i--

pkg info -r splunkforwarder
Name: application/splunkforwarder

Remove the temporary publisher:

pkg unset-publisher splunk
