Hi,
I ve just download SMC 4.0 and try to install it in a SunFire X2200 running SXDE 09/07, but I get the following error:

Installation files source directory: /export/home/rbahntje/downloads/disk1/image/SunOS/i386

XML APIs not accessible

Exiting Sun Management Center 4.0 installation.

Ruben you are attempting installation on Solaris Nevada (Solaris Express
09/07 build SXDE 09/07) so from that point of view this is failing as expected.

The root cause of the reason is that the installer is looking for a directory
that containts certain install utilities, something like
<path>/disk1/sbin/lib/i386-sun-solaris11 is being checked for, in the
downloaded image, and that check is failing because the installer is run
on an unsupported version of the OS. You can find details on the platform/
environment on which this is supported at the following URL

http://www.sun.com/software/products/sunmanagementcenter/specs.xml

In addition, given you are running Solaris 11 you may try this on your own,
baically trick the installer by creating symlinks in the downloaded image
directory for Solaris 11. You can do a find of Solaris 10 directory
in the downloaded image, create a symlink and then attempt install.
You'll also be required to tweak a few scripts along the way to please
the installer. For example in this script opt/SUNWsymon/addons/SCM/sbin/scm-setup.sh
add an entry for Solaris 11.

Thanks Aniruddh,

I ve just installed it in SXDE replacing the uname command with a shell script that return the information as a Solaris 10 machine:

case $1 in
-r) echo "5.10";;
-m) echo "i86pc";;
-a) echo "SunOS solaris-devx 5.10 Generic_120012-14 i86pc i386 i86pc";;
-p) echo "i386";;
-s) echo "SunOS";;
-n) echo "solaris-devx";;
-v) echo "Generic_120012-14";;
