I am about to install bash-3.1-sol9-sparc-local and I was told that I must have the current cluster installed for this shell to run properly. Could someone tell me how to check what cluster version is currently on the machine?

    (need to reboot the box after install the patch clusters).

    then install bash, please remember to add the new shell to /etc/shells file.
