Kernel Patch level of ABE.


Anyone able to advise on how to find the kernel patch level of an ABE?

showrev and uname -a will provide kernel patch details of the running environment, but how can I run these commands against the ABE or where do these commands get their information from i.e. is the kernel patch level stored somewhere in a flat file?

# mkdir /a
# beadm mount ABE /a
# showrev -a -R /a

Hmm - not sure if that's actually worked.

I've compared two BE's that I know are at different patch levels e.g.

root[mybox]# df -h .
Filesystem             size   used  avail capacity  Mounted on
/dev/md/dsk/d3          15G    13G   1.9G    87%    /
root[mybox]# mount /dev/md/dsk/d0 /a
root[mybox]# showrev -a -R /a > /tmp/result
root[mybox]# umount /a
root[mybox]# showrev -a > /tmp/result1
root[mybox]# diff /tmp/result1 /tmp/result

Am I missing something obvious?

Ok it was my mistake.
-R works only with -p
so you can do something like this
# uname -a
SunOS ldom 5.10 Generic_141414-01 ...
# showrev -p | grep 141414
Patch: 141414-01 Obsoletes:  Requires: 118833-36, 120011-14, 127127-11, 137137-09, 139555-08 Incompatibles:  Packages: SUNWcakr, SUNWckr, SUNWcslr, SUNWmdb, FJSVmdb, SUNWmdbr, FJSVmdbr, SUNWzfsu, SUNWs9brandr, SUNWust1, SUNWust2, SUNWdtrc, SUNWhea

If you have number of kernel patch of running BE and eventually number of obsoletes, then you can try to find out number of kernel patch in your ABE.
# mount /dev/md/dsk/d0 /a 
# showrev -p -R /a | grep 141414
