More on How to Find Old Sun Documentation

Google search is starting to index the old Sun docs, but until has caught up (about 25,000 docs got migrated!), use this SunDocsFinder to find the Sun documentation. It's a hack, and it does not work in every single case, but it is a big help:

  1. Find the part number corresponding to your doc title
  2. Enter site: oracle.com into a Google search box.

Here's an example:

  1. The part number for "Solaris 2.5.1 Server Release Notes" is 802-5366, so
  2. Enter "802-5366 site: oracle.com" into a google search box

    Thanks! I've been working on a inventory/troubleshooting hardware on old/new Sun servers and this is a huge help!
