How can I check the current patch level on my Prognosis server?

In addition to the packaged dashboards for checking patch levels, this article describes three methods for checking the Prognosis patch levels on various platforms.
Method 1:
Each installation will have a patch directory and inside this you will find a file named AUDITLOG for NSK or AUDIT.log for Windows/Unix. Viewing this file in a text editor will show the patch install history for that particular node. The patch directory exists under the Prognosis installation location on Windows/UNIX, and in a subvolume called <prognosis main subvolume name>PTCH on HpNonStop (where <prognosis main subvolume name> refers to the first 4 characters of the main PROGNOSIS installation subvolume.

Method 2
Executing the IRPATCH command with the -l switch (This is a lower case L) will list out the details of the patch history as detailed in the AUDITLOG or AUDIT.log file. The syntax for each platform is listed below. Your command interface such as TACL, Telnet, or the DOS Prompt should be set to the relevant 'patches' directory when executing this.

Nonstop = run irpatch -l
Windows = irpatch -l
Unix = ./irpatch -l

Method 3:
PatchInstallationStatus record exists (its short record name is PTCHINST). Creating a display for this record and starting it on the node in question will also show you the patch levels on the machine.

Re: How can I check the current patch level?

An edit to the use of "irpatch" at the Windows command line.

the string is "irpatch<space>-l" ... the space is barely visible on th text.

Launch from ..\Prognosis\patches directory in command window.
