Summary: Ultra 80 and Solaris 2.6 (still has issues)

After a few replies (thank you Jason Santos and Darren Dunham) I found
out that you need the "Operating Environment Installation CD February
2000" that is suppose to come with the machine but we received the
machine from which does not include anything with the
machine except a stupid yellow duck (We will never shop there again). So
with the solution presented we now have another problem "Were do we get
the CD"? Does anyone have an ISO we could download or is there any
patches we can apply to our jumpstart server instead of using the CD?
Any extra info would be appreciated !!

Thank you,


Original Post

We just received an Ultra 80 and I attempted to put Solaris 2.6 or
Solaris 7 on it but it gave me an error that it could not load/open the
Kernel and it asked where it was. I then loaded Solaris 8 on it and
everything works fine. Is this a case that Solaris 2.6 and 7 are not
compatible with the Ultra 80 or do I need to patch the older OS's in
order to make them work on it.

Thank you!
