Question Is A Patch installed?

Is there a way to find out if a patch has been applied? I'm running Solaris 2.6 on an Ultra Sparc machine. Our UNIX System Admin has left the company and unfortunately for the time being I'm the man. I need to know if he installed Kernel patch 103640-05 and Thread patch 103920-05 before I can install a database program. Any help I can get will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in Advance.

'showrev -p' should show all the patches installed on your system

Thanks for the help, I did the showrev -p but the only patches I see start with 105, do I assume the patches both start with 103 I need to be installed have been?

103640-05 has been replaced with 103640-38 but both are patches to Solaris 2.5.1.

103920-05 was obsoleted by 103640 but again these are for Solaris 2.5.1.

Whoever is advising you to attempt to install them on Solaris 2.6 is simply wrong.

You can try to run showrev -p and then grep for the patch id number before the hyphen. That will show you that patch if it has been installed before, and what revision (the number after the hyphen) it is. If they don't show up, it probably hasn't been installed.
