Thanks in advance,

You seem to have a zone in bad shape. To install a package in the global zone (only), use the "-G" option.

it looks like the package you are trying to patch is not installed or the package info is not available... have a look at the mentioned path.

............this looks strange?!

also there is a newer patch of 137871 available (137871-02). as i can see you are using tlp to check for patches so this might be alright... but EIS-CD is nearly 6 months old, so you maybe want to use a newer one?!

and as also mentioned, if the patch is only for the global zone, use the "-G" option for patchadd.

reinstall the software that is missing... but this is too complex to solve something like this remote. you use EIS, so you have a service contract with sun!? open a case at sun and let them have a look at your configuration.
