Stacks and Stacks of Software Stacks












Do you have to climb Las Torres Del Paine in oven mitts and Florsheim dress shoes with the shoelaces missing just so you can find out which version of which firmware goes with which version of Solaris on whichever dang version of the SPARC server your boss wants to buy?

Not any more!

Bruce Hill and Robert Weeks have teamed up to bring you the BigAdmin Software Stacks Page. It's a list of Sun's SPARC systems and the software stacks supported on each one. We've just started the list, so there will be updates to it every week until we have them all.

Let Us Know What You Think!

It's been a bit tricky to summarize this info without making it too complicated or too simplistic or too difficult to keep current, so please, please, POR FAVOR! let us know what you think and what we can do to make the content more useful to you.




Notice how Torres del Paine contains the word pain? Those Chilenos, my paisanos, are clever dudes.

Working With Gear From Sun and IBM or Other Tech Companies?

We have info for sys admins to help you run the Solaris OS on servers from IBM and other manufacturers.

IBM-specific resources include:

\* Installing Solaris 10 5/08 OS on the IBM LS42 Blade Server
\* Installing Solaris 10 5/08 OS on IBM x3850 M2 Server
\* 6668806: Xorg Server Fails to Start on IBM x3850 M2 Server

Wondering which servers from other companies work with the Solaris OS? Go the Hardware Compatibility List for Solaris OS (the HCL), find the Search feature, and just enter the manufacturer's name.

Also, the BigAdmin Interoperability collection includes info from Sun as well as useful links submitted by the community. (And remember to submit your own links if you find good stuff to share.)

HTH!
