    @Ajay, To check when you have installed any particular patch you need to go to /var/sadm/patch and do ls -lrt it will give you the datew when the patch has been applied to your system. eg: bash-3.00$ uname -a
    SunOS yogesh 5.10 Generic_142900-02 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-V240
    bash-3.00$ ls -ld 142900-02
    drwxr-xr– 2 root root 512 Feb 1 2011 142900-02
    bash-3.00$ date
    Mon Mar 26 04:58:36 BST 2012
    bash-3.00$ pwd
    bash-3.00$ uptime
    4:58am up 50 day(s), 10:36, 74 users, load average: 2.50, 3.48, 3.85
