I asked the following question on patches for Solaris v2.7:
> Following the advice of the FAQ, I went to
> ftp://sunsolve1.sun.com/pub/patches/Solaris7.PatchReport to find patches
> for Solaris v2.7. We have a highly loaded production box that is
> panic'ing every few hours, and we're quite desparate for a fix.
> After reading the patch report I tried to find some of the patches
> listed that might fix my problem only to discover that most of the
> patches in the list are not available, either individually or as a
> cluster. Am I missing something?

Sun only releases security and recommended patches publically, the rest
require a support contract (AKA you pay for bugfixes?).
Sun seem not to have got round to releasing any recommended patch
cluster for Solaris v2.7 yet, bugfixes are listed but most are not on
the recommended list, and as a result not available.
Patches can be obtained officially from
http://sunsolve.sun.com:80/private-cgi/us/patchpage.pl with a username
and password, and unofficially from
ftp://ftp.ed.ac.uk/pub/Unix/patches/sun-fixes/ if you trust the source.
