After nearly a year since the last release of Solaris 10 (10/09), the latest release - Solaris 10 9/10 (aka update 9) is now available for download and it includes quite a lot of new features and of course the new Oracle branding. At this time it hasn't actually been announced, but I suspect it will be in this webcast later today.
I'm not going to list all of the new features, you can read the What's New guide for yourself, but some of the new features are worth noting:
auto_regsysidcfg tag to prevent installations going interactive.
vmdump.#- a compressed archive containing
unix.#) to Oracle for analysis.
svc:/network/sendmail-client:default) and the configuration can now automatically be regenerated, though this isn't the default behaviour. Watch out for this one if you insist on customising your Sendmail configuration by modifying the
submit.cffiles directly. You should be modifying the
.mcfiles and this change will enforce this.
autoexpand(new pool property) when an underlying LUN is expanded, RAIDZ3 has been implemented, snapshots functionality has been improved, and a new
logbiasproperty has been introduced to improve performance with Oracle databases.
As I said above, this is only a snippet of the new features. Be sure to check out the What's New guide for the full details and links to further details on the above and other features.
