kernel update

Hi I am installeing Solaris Kernel update in my solaris Server.

The Solaris Kernel update skipps the patch 120011-14.

saying that it had already been installed.

But it is not found in /var/sadm/patch directory where all the patches will be there.

And also i could not install other patches bcos it is saying 120011-14 is not installed.

Pl help me if you have any ideas on this

sounds like your patch database may be messed up.....

I think there maybe a force flag for patchadd.
