Copy of Solaris ver 2.4!

We are running solaris ver 2.4 (yes, 2.4!!) on some old sun boxes. My understanding is that the CAD software we are running on these machines requires ver 2.4 - we have problems running it on solaris 2.5.
My problem is that we have lost the ver 2.4 installation disks so should we have some sort of disaster, we cant re-install it. Can anyone advise where I can get a copy of version 2.4 on CD (or download) and will ver 2.4 run on newer hardware?

ok ....2.4 will NOT work on the sun4u architecture,
eg: ultra 1 ->
as with another copy of 2.4, I don't think there is a way of getting this. If you have a contract with Sun, give contracts a call or maybe some of the Sun resellers may have some old copies, people like computacentre, morse ...
alternatively, upgrade the hardware, solaris and CAD. you will stand a better chance of it being supported
hope this helps ...

  • An evaluation copy of Solaris 8 (x86)

    anybody know where I can get a copy? I want to work on my Sys Admin cert. for solaris 8, but can't find a copy for my home pc.

    I think Solaris 8 x86 is only available by ordering a media kit.
    You can download Solaris 9 x86 for $20:

  • Where can I find Oracle 8i intel solaris ver.?

    I installed intel-solaris on my PC. and I need to install oracle DB for study,
    but I can't find it. Should I buy oracle 8i?
    Thanks for your help.

    I got Oracle8i, I believe 8.1.5, from Sun as a part of the package, when I got my Solaris8 for Intel.
    I had to go to the Oracle Store to get Oracle8i 8.1.7. (
    I ordered the CD Pack.
    Sorry I do not know where it can be downloaded.

  • How to install a fresh copy of Solaris

    I need to figure out how to boot from my CD ROM drive, so if someone could help me out finding out what the name of that drive is on my machine (Netra T1 200) and what command specifies to boot from this drive I would greatly appreciate it, thanks alot!

    should be "cdrom", try "boot cdrom" or "boot cdrom - install" from the OK prompt.

  • Vista and Solaris 10, are they compatible?

    I have attempted to follow dual boot guides found everywhere, but none tailor specifically to (or eve mention) Vista. This is a problem, because Vista does not use the same method of boot as previous versions of NT.
    So far, in my many failed attempts at creating a Vista dual boot, I have experienced this:
    When I install Solaris 10 on any partition (Solaris installs correctly and works great), and then attempt to install Windows Vista, Vista says all of my partitions do not meet its requirements for installation (that the drive is NTFS and at least 12 GB is all it tells me). Even after formatting, deleting, recreating, and reformatting a drive, the drive is still unusable. Only after deleting ALL drives, including Solaris 10, and recreating and brand new first partition does Vista allow me to install. If I create a partition that Vista allows me to use, and also a partition to use with Solaris, and THEN install Solaris, the partition that Vista liked can no longer be used!
    When I install Windows Vista first (and it works fine) (which is what I tried first and reasoned is what I should be doing), and then install Solaris 10 on a partition (it installs correctlt and works great), I load up my computer and go into the GRUB bootloader. I can select Windows. However, when attempting to load windows, I get an error (in the Vista font by the way) that says my operating system cannot be loaded. When I load my Vista install disc, it cannot find any installations of windows, and it cannot repair the master boot record, saying something like the filesystem is corrupt. However, just as an experiment, I loaded Vista onto the former Solaris drive, and looked at my first partition. Every file was there, intact.
    I have attempted this with Windows Home Premium 32 bit, Windows Business 32 bit, and Vista Ultimate x64. I don't want to believe that it's impossible to load Vista and Solaris simultaneously, I've seen as much stating its impossibility as I've seen documents telling me how to do it (<- cold irony).
    As long as I can get AN INSTALLATION of Solaris 10 on my machine at the same time I have Vista able to boot, I'm fine, but I seem to have lost on all fronts.

    In Solaris Express, this is not an issue, according to this weblog:
    For versions of Solaris Express prior to buid 70, this method was described for creating a dual-boot with the oh-too-picky Windows Vista:
    I am going to assume that setting up a dual-boot with Solaris 10 is similar to, if not the same as, Solaris Express, since the only steps specific to Solaris are the files I copy from Solaris.
    I hope this helps anyone else with a problem similar to mine.

  • How can I transfer the music files from my iTunes ver: 9.0.? on my external hard drive to my new laptop with the latest version of iTunes?

    A few years ago I had copied my iTunes, ver:9.0.?, from my old laptop tom my external hard drive. The music on it was already loaded onto my other devices. My old computer crashed andI bought a new one, put iTunes on it and kept it updated. The problem is I forgot to keep the iTunes on my ecternal hatd drive updated. I tried to open the external hard drive iTunes but received a error with something to the effect that there was a newwerversion of iTune. I was hoping to either put the external Itunes music on my device. How can I go about that now?

    Type "move itunes library" into the google search bar.

  • I did a COPY of some text from a web page, and then did a PASTE into notepad.exe (Windows). The text from each line was duplicated -- on the line! Instead of "Fred", it became "Fred Fred".

    I just recently installed Firefox for the first time. It seems nice and quick. The version is reported as: "10.0.1".
    I wanted to save some text from a web page, so navigated to that page, selected the text, and pressed the Control-C combination to COPY the selected text to the buffer. For example, the text I selected looked something like this:
    NOTE: Each line of text has a small icon to the left of the text.
    It is not reasonable to COPY and PASTE each line individually, as there can be hundreds of lines of data. I recall, however, that
    doing a COPY and PASTE on this data into Microsoft's Excel will produce cells which have the icons included in the cell, but unfortunately one cannot can't get rid of them! At least I've never found a way to remove them, but that's another issue. :)
    Once I'd done the COPY operation I switched to a Notepad window and did a PASTE operation. To my surprise, the text from each line was duplicated. It looked like this:
    Harry Harry
    Ron Ron
    Hermione Hermione
    Hagrid Hagrid
    Albus Albus
    Thinking that there might be something unusual about the web page I looked at the source, but it appeared "normal" -- that is, as expected.
    Note: I have done this operation several times before, and have never seen this occur before.
    Note: In the actual data some of the lines have quoted text in them. Curiously there is weird behavior on these lines. In some cases the entire line is shown only once. (These occur at the top of the line, and the quoted text is at the beginning of the name.)
    When quoted text appears "later" in the name, in some cases the quoted text is duplicated, and in other cases the quoted text is missing altogether! I have also noticed an error with the quoted text, and so will be reporting that to the web site which generates the HTML.
    Note that each line of "text" is "anchor text", so if I click on a name the browser navigates to a page for that name.
    I believe that the problem is that the COPY operating in Firefox is not simply copying the visible text, but also the ALT=
    Below is a sample of what the source HTML looks like:
    &lt;a class="lnk" target="_blank" href="http://details.aspx?id=Harry">
    &lt;img width="16" height="16" alt="Harry" class="tb_icon" src="http://.../Harry.gif"/>
    (Because of the true length of the lines in the source HTML, I have stripped out the actual URL of the site.)
    To make sure I wasn't imaging this difference I repeated the process within Internet Explorer. In that browser I did not get duplicated data.

  • Oracle 8.1.6 and Solaris 2.6 Issues

    Is anyone aware of any "major" issues/bugs with Oracle ver. 8.1.6 running on a Solaris Ver. 2.6 SPARC environment?
    Our installations "mainly" use Oracle 8i DBMS Server, Parallel Server, Application Server, & WebDb. Most of the business applications that we have are Pro*C, JAVA, and PL/SQL. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you

    Two of the bugs I know of are the following:
    - DCD (Dead Connection Detection) does not work with Multi Threaded server. This means that when a client connection chrashes, its session on the database server is not cleaned up (bug 1394008).
    - Instance crashes after 248 days. After an uptime of 248 days of the machine, the instance hangs because of a timer overflow. (bug 1227119) There is a patch for this problem.
    There may be more issues, but these are the major issues I know of

  • Solaris 10 x86 stable on Intel Xeon Woodcrest CPUs?

    We are looking at deploying Solaris 10 x86 for a new mail server project (using ZFS as the FS). In the past, we've purchased mostly Dell PowerEdge servers, and this will be our first foray into Solaris. I'm looking at using a HP Server for this project, and would like to use one of the new models that has the Intel Xeon 51xx "Woodcrest" family of CPUs. I see that there is a kernel patch available that enhances the stability of Solaris under this platform, and wanted to hear experiences from others as to the stability of Solaris 10 x86 with the Woodcrest Xeon's.

    FYI, I was able to install a copy of Solaris 10 x86 8/07 on my GX150.
    I guess there is some changes in the Kernel between releases that have caused the incompatibility.

  • Solaris 8

    Is Solaris 8/x86 free ? If so, can someone please give me a link where I can get it ?

    You found another web site with a forum and posted your question over there, as well.
    You have received a number of good responses and reasonable advice over there:
    Your PC is woefully lacking resources for a current release.
    You might at least consider adding more RAM.
    If you decide really really need to use Solaris 8,
    you may need to wait for someone to sell it on Ebay.
    Hopefully someone decides to sell their commercially packaged version.
    ( I own such a copy of Solaris 8x86 from Feb 2000,
    manufactured/packaged/sold by Sun, but intend to keep it.)
    Solaris 8 is a discontinued product. Sun doesn't offer it any longer.

  • Netra t1 105: Solaris 8 & 9 install failures

    Hi Everyone,
    I have two (2) Sun Netra T1 105 machines, each with a single 360MHz Ultra SPARC IIi and 256MB RAM. Both have 18.2GB drives that have been wiped clean.
    I am connecting using Winblows 2000 and Hyperterminal, serial port B, 9600,8,n,1.
    I want to install a fresh copy of Solaris 9 on these systems, but I am having absolutely no luck. I boot from the Solaris 9 install CD and the systems just hang. I've also tried to do network installs, and they hang as well.
    I thought it might be my Solaris 9 install media, so I tried to install Solaris 8 using several different releases - 4/01, 10/01 & 2/02. Each time, I get the same result - the boxes just hang.
    I make it this far (serial, MAC, and hostid x'ed out to keep our security folks happy):
    Netra t1 (UltraSPARC-IIi 360MHz), No Keyboard
    OpenBoot 3.10.25 ME, 256 MB memory installed, Serial #XXXXXXXX.

    This could be part of the problem. How exactly did you wipe the disks in the other machine, and what type of machine was it?I installed the disks into a Sun Netra T1125, partioned (using format) and newfs'd them to create basic file systems.
    How about a "boot cdrom -s"? If it boots this way, does "format" see the disks ok?Tried this, same result. The systems don't make it past the licensing terms message.
    As for the mini tests - I ran them against every device, and everything seems OK. The floppy test threw an error because I didn't have a floppy drive installed.
    I have a 4 port QFE card installed in the machine - all of the loopback tests passed, but the transceiver tests failed. None of the ports are connected (no cables). The two built in Ethernet ports also passed loopback, and 1 passed the transceiver test (the other failed) - the transceiver that passed has a network cable installed.

    I was given a copy of Solaris 8 (10/00 SPARC Media) because it has a bad 2 of 2 Installation Software CD. Does anyone have one of these on the shelf as a spare that they don't use and/or want anymore? If so, I would appreciate an E-mail so that we can work something out. [email protected]

    Kalpesh - do you work in support? Most users don't have the luxury
