Solaris: obtaining kernel patch date

Posted in Solaris at 10:04 am by alessiodini

Obtaining kernel patch release date without sunsolve is possible!
On running system i can run these commands:

grep Date /var/sadm/patch/`uname -v | cut -f2 -d’_’ `/README.*|awk ‘{print $2}’

Example:

# grep Date /var/sadm/patch/`uname -v | cut -f2 -d’_’ `/README.*|awk ‘{print $2}’
Jun/08/2005

Today i upgrade this system 🙂
