Solaris 8,9 Current OS Level Patches


Hi

I was told for Solaris 8, 9 and 10 there is a command to get the current OS level patches ? Does anyone know ? This will be the equivalent of the AIX Maintenance level. Thanks

The command
Code:
showrev -a
lists all patches applied to a system and the revision history.

hi jlliagre,

i did a patchadd -p and it lists all the patches along with the obsoletes however i wish to know in the /var/sadm/patch of the server i found there is the individual patches folder which is less than what i found in patchadd -p. Can someone explain this ? Is it fair to say that all the current patches should be in patchadd ? Thanks

Sorry but I'm not sur to get your question.

If you are complaining that /var/sadm/patch doesn't contains a directory for all patches installed on your system, then that's normal.

This directory contains only thoses patches you have installed with the option to allow backing-out them in the future.
