    svcs -a STIME column

    user4746149

      We've just noticed that the following the last set of updates to Solaris (11.4.14.5.0) the output of svc -a seems to have changed to display time as well as date.  According to the man page, the spaces should be converted to _ in this output, but this no longer appears to be the case.

       

      I'm fairly new to Solaris  and Oracle's support processes - is this an apparent bug? Should I report it to Oracle? I'm not sure if it is or not - but I can't find any reference to this change, so it's unclear to me if this was expected, a change in the behaviour of svcs or something else that's changed the output on my system.

       

      Some advice as to best course of action to proceed on this - we can obviously adjust our scripts that attempt to parse the outout to deal with this - but it would be good to know if this is a change other people have experienced and if so, were should I be looking for find documentation about the change.

       

      Thanks in advance,
      Dave
