you can check the current patch level by doing uname -a
See if your kernel level is lower of that is shown from Sun Microsystems
Solaris 8, 9 and 10 have diff latest kernel patch levels.

Hello

showrev command will show you the kernel/patch level with a release date of some kind on Solaris version up to 9.
