http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solaris_(operating_system)

You have Solaris 10

I believe the latest version is 11?

Hi WP - I did see those, but it wasn't clear to me if 11 would run on the T5220 (I'm a java app developer not a doctor)...

However this page

http://wesunsolve.net/bugid/id/6974168

has this info:

# uname -a
SunOS d4v-t5220a-prg06 5.11 snv_149 sun4v sparc SUNW,SPARC-Enterprise-T5220 Solaris

Thanks for your reponse.

Oracle appears to still support the Sparc architecture, so I don't see why not.
