Hi, Can anyone tell me the difference between Oracle Solaris & SUN Solaris "updates" under NetApp Interoperability Matrix

[ Edited ]

Question : I want to find out what's the minimum Solaris 10 'Update' required for NetApp Filer running ONTAP 7.3.7 GA. In the Host OS drop down , I can see Solaris in two different locations, and they both are indicating different update levels.

 

Solaris under SUN              - > is happy with Update 8

Whereas,

Solaris under ORACLE        -> wants Update 9 as minimum.

 

Is both the same OS but put under a different owner name now (after sun acquisition by oracle) ?


Should I be looking at updates under SUN or ORACLE. Can someone please clarify this.

 

It would make sense if it's just merged under one header.

 

 

Thanks,

Solaris update 8 was likely the last one released before Oracle acquired Sun. So later updates are Oracle branded.

Yeah, that's what I thought. B'cos updates under ORACLE Solaris shows  '9' onward, whereas SUN OS has updates until '8'. So, I should be looking at SUN Solaris to find out the "MINIMUM' update needed. Is that right?
