showrev


NAME
     showrev - show machine, software revision, and  patch  revi-
     sion information

SYNOPSIS
     /usr/bin/showrev [-a]  [-p  |  -p  -R  root_path]   [-w]  [-
     c command] [-s hostname]

DESCRIPTION
     showrev  displays  revision  information  for  the   current
     hardware  and software. With no arguments, showrev shows the
     system  revision  information  including  hostname,  hostid,
     release,   kernel  architecture,  application  architecture,
     hardware provider, domain, and kernel version.

     If a command is supplied with the -c option,  showrev  shows
     the  PATH  and  LD_LIBRARY_PATH and finds out all the direc-
     tories within the PATH that contain it. For each file found,
     its  file  type, revision, permissions, library information,
     and checksum are printed as well.

OPTIONS
     The following options are supported:

     -a              Print all system revision information avail-
                     able.  Window  system  and patch information
                     are added.



     -c command      Print the revision  information  about  com-
                     mand.



     -p              Print only the  revision  information  about
                     patches.



     -R root_path    Define the full path name of a directory  to
                     use as the root_path. By specifying the root
                     path, showrev retrieves the revision  infor-
                     mation  about  the patch from package system
                     information files located under a  directory
                     tree  starting  at  root_path. The root_path
                     can be specified when  retrieving  installed
                     patch information in a client from a server,
                     for example, /export/root/client1.


                     Note -
                             The root file  system  of  any  non-
                             global  zones must not be referenced
                             with the -R option. Doing  so  might
                             damage  the  global zone's file sys-
                             tem, might compromise  the  security
                             of the global zone, and might damage
                             the non-global zone's  file  system.
                             See zones(5).



     -s hostname     Perform  this  operation  on  the  specified
                     hostname.   The   -s   operation   completes
                     correctly  only  when  hostname  is  running
                     Solaris 2.5 or compatible versions.



     -w              Print only the OpenWindows revision informa-
                     tion.

     put similar to the following appears:

          Release: 5.10
          Kernel architecture: sun4u
          Application architecture: sparc
          Hardware provider: Sun_Microsystems
          Domain: a.network.COM
          Kernel version: SunOS 5.10 generic

BUGS
     For the -s option to work when hostname is running a version
     of  Solaris  prior  to  2.5, the Solstice AdminSuite must be
     installed on hostname.
