The readme for the patchset should have any special steps for streams if there are any.

I've never done that specific patchset on streams but is the readme doesn't specifically mention streams, it should be just like any other patch.

If you are nervous about it just stop propagation while you upgrade them.  Once everything is patched, restart propagation.

hi sree_vasan,
- i believe you have an Oracle Support contract? there are published cases on applying patches on Solaris. these problem/cases might/might not hit your environment, depending on how your is setup.

- if you have the access to Metalink, read up these Doc ID:
