Use swlist:

swlist -l patch

for the latest patch bundle:
swlist | grep -i QPK

Hello,

If you know the required patch name then you can use below command.

Re: how to see the patch installed in the server

Nice tools:

# show_patches -h

Usage: show_patches [-a] [-s] [-l product|fileset]

-a : show information about active patches (default)

-s : show information about superseded patches

-l : display information for the patch at the
product level (default) or fileset level



# check_patches -h

Usage: check_patches [-imopsv]

-i: check for invalid patches
-m: check for missing filesets in active patches
-o: check checksum values for object modules
-p: check patch fileset patch_states
-s: check patch fileset states
-v: run swverify on all patch filesets

If no options are specified, all checks are performed.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
