OK I've applied the 'pre-upgrade' ISO contents as described in the readme. I'm inclined to stop here because I see people reporting problems in 11.1 with things I care about, principally iscsi.
What have I in fact got now? uname -a and /etc/release are showing the same things. showrev is gone of course. I am not as a human being going to quarry each package for version info and compare it to...what?It's unclear what exactly you did. Did you just add the pre-upgrade packages to your local Solaris 11 repository, or did you also perform an update from there or from http://pkg.oracle.com/solaris/release?
In short, how on earth do I figure out what it's done?
Less and less I like IPS.I think you really haven't used it enough to see all the benefits. I would like to recommend that you read the Solaris 10 to Solaris 11 Transition Guide, and some of the other documents and articles found in the Oracle Solaris 11 documentation.

Here's an example of how IPS can leave a bad taste. I call this getting wedged into an incorporation spaghetti mess:
I have followed the steps listed here for updating from the release repo to the tee. At the last step halted here. I know I could sort through this given enough time, but that's the point - a time waster. Hoping someone with x-ray vision can see through to the root problem. Perhaps not on 11 11 to start (see uname -a at bottom)? How then to roll back - a big issue in IPS, which wants to keep you rolling forward.
root@solaris:~# pkg list entireIf the "entire" incorporation was removed from your system, then you are not following a standard update scenario.
pkg list: no packages matching 'entire' installed
root@solaris:~# pkg publisherAnd this indicates an internal development build of Solaris 11.1. What does "pkg info consolidation/osnet/osnet-incorporation" show?
