1)    Get the latest patch cluster from sunsolve for your particular
2)    Edit the patch order file to remove patches that you dont want
3)    Change into single user mode if possible

The servers that I have inherited are way behind on patching ..... what
would be the best practise to get them into shape ? Things that I'm thinking
about are what if these patches break the system .... do I have to reboot
when completed ... do I just install the latest or do I have to install
gradually ?

Any help appreciated,
