Good Morning Build 92

June 24, 2008

Our Sun Ray upgrade strategy hiccuped and now has both the SPARC systems running the same release, which when it is nv92 is nothing to complain about:

: FSS 1 $; uname -a  SunOS enoexec 5.11 snv_92 sun4v sparc SUNW,SPARC-Enterprise-T5220  : FSS 2 $;

The reason for the hiccup was two fold. Once we had established that the T5220 was a perfect Sun Ray server and managed to find and file some really nasty bugs found because we were using it a far sighted director agreed to fund one long term. This left the old Sun Fire system looking like a very large bit of tin, burning lots of power and taking up a lot of space while only providing one Sun Ray server. So that has now been replaced with a V890:

: FSS 1 $; uname -a SunOS estale 5.11 snv_92 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-V890 : FSS 2 $;  

Since this was fresh hardware it was freshly installed and was to be the build 92 server while the T5220 served build 91 and would at some point serve build 94. That was until we diagnosed that we were hitting a bug on the T5220 which made it stall sometime for minutes that is fixed in build 92 so we have both systems running build 92.
