Hi there,
 We have freshly installed Sol9(04/03) on a sunfire v210. Installed sun patch manager 2.0 and setup the following parameters
# smpatch get
patchpro.backout.directory      -               ""
patchpro.download.directory     -               /var/sadm/spool
patchpro.install.types          -               rebootafter:reconfigafter:standard
patchpro.patch.source           -               https://updateserver.sun.com/solaris/
patchpro.patchset               patchdb1        patchdb
patchpro.proxy.host             hectate.chiron.com      ""
patchpro.proxy.passwd           ****            ****
patchpro.proxy.port             -               8080
patchpro.proxy.user             -               ""
patchpro.sun.passwd             ****            ****
patchpro.sun.user               chironcorp      ""


# uname -a

smpatch is a crock (as are all the other various attempts by Sun to write a patching tool).  I wouldn't even bother trying to use them.

Most people recommend PCA (including me).
