the /dev/fd is a FDFS (File Descriptor File System) and it is maintained by the Solaris OS kernel. It is a pseudo-file system and it is not disk-based. It should not be used as directory to store files during software installation. Check your software installation procedure.
But we are not providing any path in the installation.
It automatically tries to copy files to /dev/fd.
This is happening in one server only. We have installed the same product on many other solaris 10 boxes without any issue.
Actually i do not understand the how FDFS work. But is i think during a installation the process can use /dev/fd open required files.
Are there any conditions that should be completed to do that?
like parameter setting, permission etc..
Thanks in advance

The /dev/fd file system DOES NOT require user intervention. It is maintained by the Solaris Kernel. It basically contains numbers that act as pointers to access files.
Can you check if there is any issue with the disk space? The README file of the Software Package might have any useful info.
You migh also want to try running the script under "truss":
Then look in your output file and see what file(s) the script is actually trying to access. Pay particular attention to the traced "open()" and "execve()" calls.
truss -f -a -vall -e -o/path/to/output/file script command here
FWIW, it sounds like a borked script.
