Solaris patch levels can be difficult to manage any time that more than a few systems are involved. Sun provides the PatchPro, Patch Manager and Patchdiag utilities, as well as providing the Explorer 1 script, but these are are not as customizable as is sometimes required in a non -standard installation. In particular, these tools do not give a good sense whether or not there are securityrelated patches that need to be installed.
