Patching error

Hi Gurus
I wanted to patch two servers yesterday with the SUN provided patch_cluster for solaris 10

One server is had the same patchlevel before and after patching
Code:
SunOS svr10008 5.10 Generic_125100-10 sun4v sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-T200

The other had after the patching a different patchlevel
Code:
SunOS svr10009 5.10 Generic_138888-07 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-V890

I am concerned about the many rc 1. I never had them before. A second run of the install_cluster script changed nothing. Smilie

Any advice is much appreciated. Smilie

After first round of patching, you will need to do a reconfiguration boot
#reboot -- -r
Re-do install_cluster

Those are 2 different architectures, sun4v and sun4u. They run on different kernels.
