Updated Sun Device Detection Tool for Solaris 10 & OpenSolaris

With this tool, you can check to see whether the Solaris 10 or OpenSolaris OS can be installed on your x86/x64 systems. (If your devices are already shown on the Solaris OS Hardware Compatibility List or HCL, then you do not need to use this tool.)

The current version of Sun Device Detection Tool is designed to detect and run in the default language on your system. The GUI of the tool and the reports are generated in the corresponding language. The supported languages are English, simplified Chinese, German, French, Japanese, Korean, Italian, traditional Chinese, Russian, Portuguese, and Spanish.

The informational web pages on the tool have been translated into Spanish, French, Japanese, Korean, and simplified Chinese (see language icons).

How Long Will Sun Support Solaris 10 on a Particular SPARC System?



I don't know the answer.


I have heard that Sun will support a version of Solaris on a SPARC system for the life of that Solaris release, but I can't promise that it's true. What I can do is point to some locations that will have the latest information.



To find out which SPARC platforms currently run Solaris 10 (or OpenSolaris), go to the HCL:

You can also get a quick summary from the Sun documentation:

Solaris 10 Hardware Platform Guide

For general requirements and specifications for Solaris 10, see:

Solaris 10 System Requirements
