What is new in this release?

This release runs on the Solaris Nevada build 70b (SXDE 9/07).  It also includes many bug fixes for cluster core, framework, management and the following important enhancements for the Solaris Cluster Express Agents:

1.) The HA containers agent has been enhanced to support non-native Containers.  Solaris Containers for Linux Applications (aka Lx Zones) can be made HA using the HA Containers agent.  The agent also includes support for Solaris8 Containers on the SPARC platform.

2.) The HA JES Application server agent (SUNW.jsas, SUNW.jsas-na) has been enhanced to support the Open Source Glassfish version.

3.) Bug fixes for agents.  The updated list can be found at http://www.opensolaris.org/os/community/ha-clusters/ohac/Documentation/Agents/ohacds_changelog/ .

4.) This release also includes the recently open sourced Websphere Message Broker and Websphere MQ agents.

Stay tuned for more updates in the coming months as part of our commitment to Open Source software. Please visit
