I did check the patch README file but was a little confused by it. 
The original question is at the end of this file.

Did you check the patch README?

According to it this patch requires package SUNWsasdk.


Make sure that "Solstice Enterprise Agents 1.0.3" is installed.  The patch
failed for me also, and then I installed (re-installed?) v1.0.3.   After that 
the patch installed without a hitch.


You apparently need to download a newer version of the snmp agents
from some place and then patch it.



Special Install Instructions:
IMPORTANT: This patch is not compatible with SDK agents built prior to
patch 106956-03. These agents must be recompiled using mibcodegen from
patch 106956-03 or greater.
This patch is for SEA version 1.0.3
See SEA web page, if you need to add toolkit sdk (SUNWsasdk package)


And here's the original question:

I never saw any answers to the following post and I never saw
a summary. I'm experiencing the same problem with patch
106787-18 for Solaris 2.6. Can anyone help?
