    Solaris Patch Check thinks my server is up to date.  Why?

      I've installed and configured VPC for Solaris, and when I run it, it says my target server is up-to-date.


      Why is this?


      I'm certain there are patches which are missing. To prove this, I did an analysis with Sun Update Manager and it found 111 missing patches on the same host.


      Anyone know what would cause such a huge discrepancy?


      Here's the pertinent files from the log:


      *"Run at May 7, 2008 4:27:49 PM",Info,May 7, 2008 4:28:17 PM,"Server:busun048.somecompany.com, no patches required"

      "Run at May 7, 2008 4:27:49 PM",Info,May 7, 2008 4:28:21 PM,no patches for server busun048.somecompany.com*


      At this point I think I'll have to review the patchdiag.xref file against the output of showrev -p, but that process will be a serious time killer. I've already fixed the issue with the HTML tags in the xref file btw.
