Solaris 8,9 Current OS Level Patches

Hi

I was told for Solaris 8, 9 and 10 there is a command to get the current OS level patches ? Does anyone know ? This will be the equivalent of the AIX Maintenance level. Thanks

Unfortunately, at this particular moment I'm running an unpatched version of my OS.

I think, however that uname -v will tell you and I KNOW thet uname -a
will contain the Kernel patch level in its output.

If you know the kernel patch level for a particular Solaris release, then
"showrev -p | grep <kernel-patch-number> will catch all the revisions added.
I think the kernel patches are as follows:
Solaris 10: 118822
Solaris 9: 112233
Solaris 8: 108528 (also 117350)

A 'pkginfo -l SUNWcsr' OR s simple 'showrev' should also contain this information.

There are probably other methods that I don't know about.
