grep that displays 4 lines above & 1 line below of what's found

I'm on Solaris 10  &  RHEL6.


I'll need to display 4 lines above & 1 line below of the output of the command below:
How can this be done without installing additional packages?

# grep "Found" /opt/av/scanlog.txt | grep -i "iruses"  


 ^MScanning /opt/av/eicar/eicar.com->Found Virus [Eicar_test_file]

^M

 Found 1 files containing viruses.

Note the search string as the following are the 3 types of lines I'm looking for in the log:

 /app/files/eyecar.jpg->Found Viruses [Eicar_test_file]         (ie "Found Viruses"
Found 1/25 Viruses in /app/weblogic/ww/esvcs/data/out/sent/APPL_09.zip   (ie Found ... Viruses)
Found 1 files containing viruses.        (Found ... viruses)

Your syntax doesn't seem right:

-bash-3.2# grep -iC5 "Found" x* |more
grep: illegal option -- C
grep: illegal option -- 5
Usage: grep -hblcnsviw pattern file . . .

Linux:

grep -A 4 -B 1 "Found" /opt/av/scanlog.txt

Solaris' grep does not support -A, -B or -C, so try

FILE=/opt/av/scanlog.txt
grep -Ein "Found.*viruses"  $FILE |awk -F: '{print $1}' | while read N
do
     sed -n "$((N-4)),$((N+1))p" $FILE
done

Gerwin's solution above is just fine for RHEL6!

Yep, the above link would not work on Solaris though likely to work on RHEL

(extracted from above link:
  sudo lspci -vnn | grep -i net -A 12 )

Got a syntax error:

-bash-3.2# FILE=/opt/av/update.log
-bash-3.2# grep -Ein "Found.*viruses"  $FILE |awk -F: '{print $1}' | while read N
> do
>      sed -n "$((N-4)),$((N+1))p" $FILE
> done
grep: illegal option -- E
Usage: grep -hblcnsviw pattern file . . .

Solaris has 2 greps, let me know which one to use:

usr/bin/grep
usr/xpg4/bin/grep
0
woolmilkporcCommented:
Sorry, forgot to say that it's /usr/xpg4/bin/grep

And here is a version which can handle matches in the first few lines of a file:

FILE=/opt/av/scanlog.txt
/usr/xpg4/bin/grep -Ein "Found.*viruses"  $FILE |awk -F: '{print $1}' | while read N
do
     S=$((N-4)); [[ S -le 0 ]] && S=1
     E=$((N+1))
     sed -n "${S},${E}p" $FILE
done

If exact case matching is a concern (e.g. match "Found" but not "found") replace the above "grep" line with this one:

/usr/xpg4/bin/grep -En "Found.*[vV]iruses"  $FILE |awk -F: '{print $1}' | while read N
