b stands for Batch in my memory, so 17b means Batch 17.

"wos_17b" is "wad of stuff 17b"

A wad of stuff is an entire solaris distribution made up of all of the different "stuff" eg. admin, install, desktop etc... which are each developed as "consolidations" [or "gates"] when collected together they form the "wad" or complete distribution.

If you have access to retrieve the diag file from Oracle, you can run a checkup date script that uses the showrev -v that will compare the installed packages versus current version of packages for the installed OS.

Hi,
I am guessing that you won't be able to download the kernel patch(es) from Oracle.  Sun used to have them readily available but now they are only available for download if you have a service contract (software) with Oracle.  The installed release (/etc/release), which contains the date on the CD that was used to install it, is much less relevant than the kernel patch revision.

The patch you have has a minor revision -01, and 147440-27 is available.  That has been replaced by 147147-26 (latest).  This is not useful, though, unless you have an Oracle support contract, and I don't suppose you do or you may not be posing the question here.  :-D
