    Unix Patch Management Best Practices

      I'm trying to collect some information on how everyone has been doing Patch Management on Unix (Solaris, HP-UX, AIX) within and outside of BladeLogic.


      I'm also looking for some information on general patching within these categories as well.


      Some questions I would like to get answered are as follows


      1. How does the vendor rate their patches? i.e. Microsoft rates their patches as Critical, high, medium and low. How do the various Unix vendors rate theirs.


      2. How often do the vendors release their patches? Does it vary based on what kind of patch it is?


      Thanks for your help
