Patch cluster dry run


I'm just wondering if there is an easy way to produce a 'dry run' result of a patch cluster on Solaris 10 so I can see which patches would be applied.

There doesn't seem an obvious way of doing it.

The closest way would be using live upgrade.

Unfortunately, that's not an option.

I should probably have specified that this installation is the original Solaris 10 release. I have applied a pretty recent '10 Recommended' patch cluster to the system. Prior to this, it had never been patched at all.

I've needed to add a couple of packages from the orginal Solaris 10 packages since for various reasons and I need to identify the patches that would be applied from the patch cluster to update those components.
