we have a SparcCenter 2000 that is running 2.4 happily.. We need
to upgrade to either Sol 7 or 8 for binary compatibility and thread
issues. Not to mention security.
Would I need a ROM update? How and where would I get it? The system
is fully populated with boards, do I need to update the Prom on
each board? Could somebody with similar experience comment on these
I installed Sol 7 on the SparcCenter 2000, and it works quite nicely.
Did not need any ROM upgrades, which would cost around $750 for the
ten boards in this beast. Casper Dik says that an update is only
needed for Y2K compliance, which we are not really worried about.
The latest PROM rev. for the SS 1000/2000 is -16.
How and where would I get it? Sun Express or Base 2 Technologies
and Casper says:
Solaris never required PROM updates (only flash PROMs for 64 bit Solaris)
