Once again, Sun Managers comes through in record time!

I received suggestions from:

"Eric D. Pancer" <eric@unique.outlook.net>
poffen@San-Jose.ate.slb.com (Russ Poffenberger)
Art Gwozdz <gwozdzar@bvt.gdarm.com>

Only Russ had the right answer, though. He wrote:

I did indeed have 103566-27 installed. Perfect! The original query follows:
