Operating system updates

Solaris 8 requires the following operating system patches to run Adaptive Server 12.5 components, for both 32-bit and 64-bit versions:

If your operating system requires patches, install them before you install Adaptive Server components.

To determine which patches have been installed on your system, see “Viewing installed patches” next.

Contact your operating system provider for any patches recommended for your installation. Do not use a patch that is earlier than the version suggested for your operating system. Use the patch recommended by the operating system vendor, even if it supersedes the patch listed.

If you plan to use Sybase Failover in a high-availability system, install all vendor-recommended operating system and high-availability patches. For more information, contact your operating system and high-availability vendors.
