Oracle Solaris 11 Express 2010.11 is released

Today marks the release of Oracle Solaris 11 Express 2010.11, beginning the rollout of our long-gestating successor to Solaris 10.  The summary and links to most everything are available on the OTN Oracle Solaris 11 Overview.  Probably the biggest thing to emphasize is that this is a supported release, not a "beta" or preview; see the link for the support options.  That said, feature development continues in anticipation of a Solaris 11 release in 2011, as was outlined at OpenWorld back in September.

For those who used the OpenSolaris distribution releases, you'll find this release quite familiar, as it's the continuing evolution of the technology we introduced in those releases: the installers from the Caiman project, the IPS packaging system, and all the other great things that my colleagues in Solaris engineering have been developing for the past several years in networking, storage, security and so on.  The biggest visible differences are a different package repository, license terms, and of course Oracle branding.

For those of you who weren't users of OpenSolaris, well, now is the time to really start getting your feet wet, evaluating Solaris 11 and planning its deployment in your environment.  We hope you'll like it!

Speaking of using OpenSolaris, is it possible to do an image update via package amanger to install Solaris Express 11 over my OpenSolaris installation?

Yes, updates from OpenSolaris are meant to work. Instructions are in the release notes linked from the main page.

What is the default root password?
I tried to make AI installation, and tried "opensolaris" which was the default root password. However, it is not correct. Right now, the AI installation is failed due to no "target disk" is found, I want to add the target disk to AI Manifest, however no permission with User "jack".
