ERROR: Target boot environment not identified as being Solaris 10.

I was installing the recommended patch bundle for Solaris 10 and I received an error that the server is not a Solaris 10

root@solaris10:/tmp/patch/10_Recommended # ./installpatchset —-apply-prereq —-s10patchset
ERROR: Target boot environment not identified as being Solaris 10.

root@solaris10:/tmp/patch/10_Recommended # uname -a
SunOS solaris10 5.10 Generic_147440-12 sun4v sparc SUNW,Sun-Blade-T6320

Check two packages SUNWcsr and SUNWcsu

root@solaris10:~ # pkginfo -l SUNWcsr
ERROR: information for “SUNWcsr” was not found

root@solaris10:~ # pkginfo -l SUNWcsu
PKGINST: SUNWcsu

In this case, it was missing the file /var/sadm/SUNWcsr/pkginfo

root@solaris10:/var/sadm/pkg/SUNWcsr # ls -l
total 4
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 512 Nov 18 2012 install

-rw-r–r– 1 root root 26479 Aug 18 2012 pkginfo
drwxr-x— 49 root root 1024 Aug 18 2012 save

There is two recommendations to solve this problem:
– reinstall the server
– restore from backup
