If you have an environment with a large number of operating systems, it can be a lot of work to keep track of their versions. You might have update requirements or compatibility issues that apply across your environment, so the ability to get information about one or many OSes and their update levels can be very important.
For Oracle Solaris 10 systems, you can use a System Catalog report to track their patch status and installed OS software:
We put together a how-to that explains how to run the report, and also talks about the things you can do with the report once you've run it, like turning it into a template or an OSP Profile. If you manage Oracle Solaris 10 systems, it's worth a look. The how-to is in the Operate How-To Library, which has quite a few other how-tos about keeping your environment running.
