While you are looking at Sun solutions, you should check out "pca",

overhead than the Sun tools, and can be integrated into your own
scripts customized for your installation.

Subject: SunUC for Solaris 8/9/10

I'm looking to integrate our Sun/SPARC environment into a centralized
patch management solution for reporting and pushing.  On Sun's website,
you can download SunUC client for Solaris 10
(  Sun's UC website states that the
client is available for Solaris 8/9/10.  Can anyone provide me the link
for the SunUC Solaris 8/9 client? (Does it exist?)

Also, is there a method by which you can set up a localized copy of the
patches as well as reporting what is installed on the systems?  Or is the
SunUC website the only way to do the registration/reporting/pushing of
patches (  I called Sun and they were unable to
provide me with any white papers or recommended/best practices on how to
deploy such a system.
