The certified platforms for PDMLink 9.0/9.1 only show Solaris 10 as compatible. We've actually had PDMLink 9.0 M020 working well on Solaris 9. For reasons I really don't want to get into, we only have Solaris 8 on the box that's available for our test setup. Does anyone have any evidence that this configuration works? Thanks Jim Marks KAPL Inc.
I would think for a test box, you risk little. I would balance upgrading this OS to a failure or unknown error with PDMLink in installation or operation. I would suspect that if you did run into an issue, it would be with the installation CDs detecting a wrong OS version. I do not know of any OS specific library dependencies with PDMLink on Solaris but there may be some with supporting applications necessary for PDMLink to run. Seeing as its Java, it should run ok.
