To check available patch

Hi all,

I would like to know the command to check all the patch available in my Alpha server. Or is there any directory which stores all the patches?

Thank you.

Hi,

there are two ways.
dupatch -nolog -track -type patch
and
cd /usr/.smdb.
ls -l | grep -i "pat.*inv"

greetings,

Hi Micheal, thanks a lot for your prompt reply.

For the second command, what is the purpose for grep -i"pat.inv"? The result shows the patch id that are installed previously?

Jess,

each patch has more than one file and I wanted to make the listing shorter.

Some refinement to Michael's suggestion...

cd /usr/.smdb.

ls *PAT*.inv | wc -l
gives you the number of patchmodules present in the kits installed on the system.

grep INSTALLED *PAT*.sts | wc -l
gives you the number of patchmodules ever installed on the system.

The code in the filename between the string OSFPAT or TCRPAT and 5nn(version.nmbr) is the patch-ID, eg:
OSFPAT02610200540, means patch-ID 26102.00 for V5.1B

Rgds,

Re: To check available patch

You can use:

dupatch -track -type kit

To verify your cumulative patch level.

You can also use:

setld -i |grep -i patch

To list individual patches.
