Using pprosvc Command to Check for the Recommended Patch Set (Doc ID 1003569.1)

Last updated on JULY 29, 2016

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 8 6/00 U1 and later
All Platforms

Goal

PatchPro 2.2 is used to analyze, download, and install signed patches.

PatchPro is not bundled with Solaris. This document assumes that Patchpro 2.2 is already installed  and configured on the intended system.

PatchPro will analyze a system's current patch level and generate a list of suggested patches to apply. Depending on the current system state, the patch list can be quite lengthy. Many of these patches are not critical and are not part of the recommended patchset. Some system administrators prefer to see a much shorter list compiled of only the patches found in the recommended patch set.

This document covers how to configure PatchPro to do this.
