When I run smpatch analyze I get the following single patch (despite knowing that I should see around 80 or so):
root@myserver # cat /etc/release Solaris 10 11/06 s10s_u3wos_10 SPARC Copyright 2006 Sun Microsystems, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Use is subject to license terms. Assembled 14 November 2006
When I run smpatch update*, it downloads the patch but errors out. When I try to install it manually it errors out with the following message:
root@myserver # smpatch analyze 121563-02 SunOS 5.10: Sun Update Connection Registration, version 1.0.3
Now the confusing thing is that SUNWbreg does not exist on my system as SUNWbreg was superseded by SUNWbrg in all versions of Solaris 10 06/06 or later (as stated here: http://wikis.sun.com/display/SunConnection/Known+Issues+and+Workarounds+in+Update+Manager+1.0.10)
root@myserver # patchadd 121563-02 Validating patches... Loading patches installed on the system... Done! Loading patches requested to install. Done!

The following requested patches will not be installed because the packages they patch are not installed on this system. 0 No Packages from patch 121563-02 are installed on the system.

Do I need to install package SUNWbreg / patch 121563-02, if so how do I do this. If not how can I ignore this patch so that when I run smpatch analyze that I get the full 80 or so patches that I am expecting to see.

and also these files from my clients:
rm /var/sadm/spool/patchsvr/*current.zip rm /var/sadm/spool/patchsvr/*detectors.jar
I then ran "*+smpatch update+*" from the LPS, once updated I ran "*+smpatch analyze+*" from my client and it now picks up all my patches and does not request that I apply patch 121563-02.
rm /var/sadm/spool/cache/*detectors.jar rm /var/sadm/spool/cache/Database/*current.zip
