Solaris patches

by insatiable In reply to Solaris patches

http://sunsolve.Sun.COM/ has a tool that you can download called PatchDiag.

It's easy to install and the instructions are included. Each week you can download what is called the patchdiag.xref file (cross reference) that compares what you have installed on your system, with what is new and recommended for y2k and security.

The patchdiag.xref file takes under a minute to download, you copy it to the location that your patchdiag executable looks for and run it. It's a quick, easy report to read.

From there, you download the patches that is lists you as needing.

I'm not sure if you can get the patchdiag tool from anywhere else, but I'm sure it's out there. There are also scripts that will automate the download of the patchdiag.xref file, but I haven't automated mine (yet)

Good luck
