1. This issue affects systems installed with Sun Management Center

To determine if SunMC server is installed on a Solaris system or what
version is present, the following command can be run:
$ pkginfo -l SUNWessrv | grep VERSION
If the following error message is returned, the "SUNWessrv" package
and SunMC server are not installed on the system:

following command can be run:
$ pkginfo SUNWesprm
system SUNWesprm Sun Management Center PRM addon

ERROR: information for "SUNWesprm" was not found
Then the PRM module is not installed on the system.
