SUMMARY: uname -a discrepancy

The problem was caused by the version of Solaris installed (2.6) being out before the 250 was put into production.

Hence no entry was in /usr/platform.  This caused the problem.

Solution: Reinstall using a more up to date release.  :-(

Subject: uname -a discrepancy


I have two solaris boxes.

When I do a uname -a on one I get the following:

SunOS XXX 5.6 Generic_105181-26 sun4u sparc sun4u

and when I do it again on another server I get this:

SunOS ZZZ 5.6 Generic_105181-26 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-80 

My question is why does one have SUNW,Ultra-80 at the end when the other one does not.

The one that does show the SUNW,Ultra-80 is a 220 and the one that doesn't is a 250.

Any help appreciated.
