Announcing Oracle Solaris 11.4 SRU16

Albert White
Manager, Software Maintenance Engineering

Today we are releasing SRU 16 for Oracle Solaris 11.4, our last SRU of 2019. It is available via 'pkg update' from the support repository or by downloading the SRU from My Oracle Support Doc ID 2433412.1.

This SRU introduces the following enhancements:

  • Oracle VM Server for SPARC 3.6.2

      You can now migrate a guest domain that has a vhba instance associated with a virtual SAN with mask=on.

      This option enables or disables the effective pagesize limit pre-determined by Oracle Solaris for a domain.
