Now possible to upgrade directly from Solaris 8 SPARC to latest Solaris 10 release

Thanks to my colleague Enda O'Connor, who has made p7zip available for Solaris 8 SPARC, it's now possible to upgrade directly from Solaris 8 SPARC to the latest Solaris 10 Update releases such as Solaris 10 5/08 and Solaris 10 10/08. 

See document 1019995.1 on My Oracle Support (MOS), http://support.oracle.com

Previously, due to the lack of p7zip on Solaris 8, customers needed to perform an interim upgrade to Solaris 9 or an earlier Solaris 10 release before upgrading to the latest Solaris 10 release.

Bravo!

I do have some systems that need to go directly from Solaris 8 2/04 to Solaris 10 10/08. You might just save me from an interim upgrade!

Sorry Kevin,

The links changed as a result of the transition from Sun (SunSolve) to Oracle (My Oracle Support, MOS).

Please log onto MOS, http://support.oracle.com, and search for document 1019995.1.

Tip: If looking for any SunSolve document on MOS, search for the "core" of the SunSolve document number, e.g. 250526 in this case, and it should return the "Oracle" version of the document, in this case Doc 1019995.1.

Best Wishes,

Gerry.
