I have several Solaris systems at work all running SunOs 5.10, also known as Solaris 10. My hardware team recently updated all of our Solaris-10 OS boxes, primarily to apply security updates. We have a ton of bash shell scripts and now some scripts work on some Solaris machines, and some don't work on other Solaris machines. Hardware team believes they applied the same updates to all of our Solaris boxes. One of my smart team mates dug a little bit further and discovered different versions of bash running on the different machines.
How do I continue to run this problem down, i.e. during versions of bash running on various Solaris machines? I need to have a lot of facts, details, etc. when I take this to my management team. Our application is getting ready to go through major testing and the hope was to have multiple machines to test on. Needless to say, we need to get this fixed ASAP, where all of our bash scripts work as they did prior to the Solaris update.
I understand there is: $ echo $BASH_VERSION. Need more than this. Appreciate the help -thanks in advance.
