From: Carsten Hennig (
Date: Wed Aug 12 1992 - 01:44:59 CDT

Hi again !

Yesterday I asked for some information regarding SunOS 4.1.3. Here is my
original question:

> Hello everybody !
> Our sales representative from Sun told us today that SunOS 4.1.3 is only (!!)
> for the new SPARCstation 10 and is similar to SunOS 4.1.2 for the rest of
> the SPARC family. There won't be a SunOS 4.1.3 for e.g. SPARCstation 2.
> I cannot believe this. Have you any hints about it ? Has anyone SunOS 4.1.3 ?
> I'll summarize the results.

First many thanks to the following people who gave me some info:

Tamara Crabbe <>
Alastair Young <>
Sven Ole Skrivervik <>
Terry F Figurelle <>
Daniel Hurtubise <daniel@CANR.Hydro.Qc.CA>
Christian Lawrence <>
Donald A. MacLeod <>
Zhishun Alex Liu <Alex.Liu@Eng.Sun.COM>
Jay Plett <>
Bill Hunter <>
Frank Peters <fwp@CC.MsState.Edu>
Kevin W. Thomas <>
Steve Simmons <lokkur!scs>
Mark Yanike <yanike@sunflats.Central.Sun.COM>
Jon Mellott <>
Simon Woodhead <kalli!freeside!simon@fourx.Aus.Sun.COM>

The responses were divided into these categories:

- your sales person is correct (5 responses)
- your sales person is incorrect (11 responses)
- we *ARE* running SunOS 4.1.3 on *ALL* sun4-platforms (2 responses)

Some people sent me an article from sunflash which I will include here. Behind
this article you'll find a list of all bugs fixed in Solaris 1.1 (special
thanks to Sven Ole Skrivervik).

I think we have to ask our sales person again.

                Introducing Solaris 1.1 Version A

SunFLASH Vol 42 #23 June 1992
There will be some confusion over the name of this operating system.
Here is a paragraph from later in this article that explains
the relationship between Solaris X and SunOS Y:
        Solaris 1.1 Version A is comprised of the following components:
        OPEN LOOK, DeskSet, OpenWindows, SunOS and ONC. It is not
        correct to say Solaris *is* SunOS, since Solaris includes all 5
        components and SunOS is only one piece of Solaris. Solaris 1.1
        Version A contains SunOS 4.1.3 and OpenWindows Version 3

This is the o/s release that is required for the recently announced
SS-10 and the new SPARCserver 600MP models.


         o Full system software support for the new SuperSPARC based
             SPARCstation 10 and SPARCserver 600MP Series in addition to
             the current SPARC platforms

         o OpenWindows Version 3 is default windowing system

         o First European localized Solaris product with OpenWindows
             translated in French, German, Swedish and Italian

Solaris 1.1 SMCC Version A brings the full benefits of SunSoft's
32-bit distributed system software environment to the new SuperSPARC
based SPARCsystem 10 platforms in addition to SMCC's current SPARC
product line. OpenWindows Version 3 as the default windowing system,
translated in French, German, Swedish and Italian, will facilitate the
migration to Solaris 2.0 worldwide.

All well behaved applications will be able to take advantage of the
binary compatibility between all Solaris 1.X releases - existing
software application environments will run completely unchanged on any
hardware platforms running Solaris 1.1 Version A. The SunUpgrade
feature has been extended to allow quick and easy upgrades from
previous versions of Solaris 1.X.

When Solaris 1.1 Version A begins shipping in late August, it will
become the default operating system. At that time, Desktop
SPARCstations will transition to Solaris 1.1 Version A pre-installed
and new updated versions of the Desktop SPARC Owner's Set will reflect
OpenWindows Version 3. New Solaris 1.1 Version A related products
include media (CD-ROM only), Full Documentation, Release Minibox,
Desktop SPARC Owner's Set, AnswerBook, Encryption Kit, and Source


Features Benefits
----------------------------------- -----------------------------------
SuperSPARC support Provides a consistent, rich system
                                        software environment across all
                                        SPARC platforms without change to
                                        existing applications

OpenWindows Version 3 Facilitates the migration to SVR4
                                        by providing the same windowing
                                        system as Solaris 2.0

DeskSet Version 3 Improves productivity and ease of
                                        use with enhanced, multimedia
                                        MailTool and multibrowse Calendar

Translated OpenWindows Version 3 Increases marketability and facilitates
                                        migration to Solaris 2.0 - increases
                                        ease of use and productivity for
                                        French, German, Swedish and Italian

XGL 2.0 Runtime Libraries Dynamically linked XGL based graphics
                                        applications will automatically
                                        benefit from the new library with
                                        out recompiling, relinking or
                                        re-releasing the application

Binary Compatibility Allows all 4000 SPARCware products
                                        to run unchanged - protects software
                                        investment. Provides a complete,
                                        diverse, rich application software

Performance tuning Software tuning increases the I/O
                                        performance and general system
                                        performance of the Cypress based
                                        SPARCserver 600MP Model 1x0 Series

Bug Fixes Increased system software quality


  - Required on all uniprocessor SuperSPARC based platforms
  - Systems adding additional SuperSPARC modules must upgrade to Solaris 2.X
  - Supports all currently shipping SPARC hardware configurations including
        multiprocessor Cypress based SPARCserver 600MP Model 1X0
  - For improved performance using OpenWindows Version 3, 16 MB of memory
        is recommended; minimum required is 8 MB
  - Installation of the full OpenWindows Version 3 software requires 85 MB
        of hard disk space, minimum is 29 MB for minimal configuration

Q: What's the relationship between Solaris and SunOS?

A: Solaris is SunSoft's new name for their distributed computing system
        software environment. Solaris is comprised of the following
        components: OPEN LOOK, DeskSet, OpenWindows, SunOS and
        ONC. It is not correct to say Solaris *is* SunOS, since Solaris
        includes all 5 components and SunOS is only one piece of
         Solaris. Solaris 1.1 Version A contains SunOS 4.1.3
        and OpenWindows Version 3 components.

Q: What are the differences between Solaris 1.1 Version A and Solaris

A: The primary differences are in 3 main areas: kernel support for the
        new SuperSPARC processor, OpenWindows Version 3 as the default
        windowing system, and a modest number of bug fixes. The secondary
        differences are in additional hardware support: type 5 keyboard,
        FSBE/S, 1.3GB disk

Q: Why is "Version A" tacked on to the Solaris name?

A: SunSoft establishes the Solaris version number based on a set of
        features. A reference port of this technology base is made
        available to it's OEMs, one of which is SMCC. SMCC ports the
        OS to it's hardware platforms, adding SMCC specific bug fixes
        and performance tuning. Since the bits on the SMCC CD are
        potentially different from the bits on SunSoft's reference port
        CD, an additional version field was added to distinguish between
        other OEM ports of the same Solaris release. The full product
        name from SMCC is "Solaris 1.1 SMCC Version A". In the context
        of SMCC products, the shortened name is used, "Solaris 1.1 Version A".
          In the event SMCC requires another release for a new hardware
        platform, or additional performance tuning or bug fixes, only the
        SMCC Version number would be incremented, since it's still the
        same Solaris 1.1 feature set. If the software required for a
        new platform is fairly small, the SMCC Version number is incremented
        to A1, then A2, etc. If a larger set of software is impacted,
        such as new versions of hardware dependent libraries, the SMCC
        Version number is incremented to B, then C, etc.

Q: When is Solaris 1.1 Version A required?

A: For all SPARCstation 10 configurations, the new SuperSPARC based
        SPARCserver 600MP Series and the FSBE/S option.

Q: Why does the Solaris 1.1 material claim it supports the SPARCserver 600MP
        when it only supports uniprocessor SuperSPARC CPUs?

A: SPARCserver 600MP is the product name for the family of servers -
        including the UP configurations. Solaris 1.1 Version A does support
        the Cypress based SPARCserver 600MP Models 120 (2 CPUs) and 140
        (4 CPUs).

Q: Why doesn't Solaris 1.1 Version A support MP SuperSPARC processors?

A: Primary reason is to provide an incentive to migrate to Solaris 2.x.
        The performance gain from the MP hardware is boosted much
        farther with the SMP (symmetric multiprocessing) kernel
        provided in Solaris 2.x than with the ASMP kernel in Solaris
        1.0.1 and 1.1. Also, Sun has decided to concentrate our
        software investment on making Solaris 2.x the industry's best
        MP OS. With Solaris 2.x availability at hand, Sun also needs to
        be sensitive to our ISV partners. Making them try to optimize
        applications for two MP operating systems is too great a strain
        on resources.

Q: What if I am planning on upgrading to Solaris 2.0?

A: If Solaris 2.0 fits your needs, there is no reason to use
        Solaris 1.1 Version A.

Q: If a customer never upgraded to Solaris 1.0.1 - can they upgrade directly
        from SunOS 4.1.1 to Solaris 1.1 Version A?

A: YES! SunUpgrade has been extended to upgrade directly to Solaris 1.1
        Version A from Solaris 1.0.1, SunOS 4.1.1 Rev B, or SunOS 4.1.1.
        Note that this means the sun-4m machines (SPARCserver 600 series)
        can now upgrade from Solaris 1.0.1 to Solaris 1.1 Version A.

Q: When upgrading hardware, what are the OS upgrade requirements?

A: All platforms upgrading to a uniprocessor SuperSPARC CPU require
        Solaris 1.1 Version A. Any platforms adding the additional
        SuperSPARC module (X1161A) must upgrade to Solaris 2.x.
        Platforms upgrading to multiprocessing SuperSPARC CPUs require
        Solaris 2.x.

Q: What are the differences in the documentation for Solaris 1.1 Version A?

A: When Solaris 1.1 Version A becomes the default, all Desktop SPARCstations
        will begin shipping with a new version of the Desktop SPARC Owner's
        Set, which has been updated to reflect OpenWindows Version 3. The
        Release Minibox (part of the Full Documentation Set) has updated
        manuals - Solaris 1.1 Version A Release Manual and Installing
        Solaris 1.1 Version A. These manuals include documentation on
        SunOS 4.1.3 and OpenWindows Version 3. Also, there is a new
        version of the Solaris AnswerBook.

Q: Will my applications still run on Solaris 1.1 Version A?

A: YES! Solaris 1.1 Version A is 100% binary compatible with Solaris 1.0.1,
        SunOS 4.1.1, Rev B, SunOS 4.1 and SunOS 4.0.3 for well behaved

Q: What makes an application well behaved?

A: Applications that have been written to published, defined interfaces
        according to Sun documentation, and that don't depend on any kernel
        data structures or interfaces.

Q: Do existing customers have to order a new Full Documentation Set?

A: No. Since all other parts of the Full Documentation Set are identical
        to what's been shipping since SunOS 4.1, existing customers need
        only order the Release Minibox (SX-4.1.3-9E) to get the supplemental
        manuals to their existing Full Documentation Set.

Q: If a customer is using the Encryption Kit, do they need a new one?

A: YES! The bug fixes and kernel tweaking make the current encryption
        kit incompatible with Solaris 1.1 Version A. Make sure you order
        new encryption kits (SX-4.1.3-E-20) when ordering new systems or
        system software.

Q: When will the new Encryption Kits ship?

A: Solaris 1.1 Version A Encryption Kits will ship within 2 weeks of
        the binaries, so book early.

Q: If a customer is using source code, is a new version available?

A: Yes. Solaris 1.1 Version A Source Code for SMCC customers will be
        available within 2 weeks of FCS. Get the appropriate paperwork
        signed well in advanced to ensure receiving source as soon as

All Solaris 1.1 Version A products will retain the same pricing as Solaris
1.0.1. Solaris 1.1 Version A will become the default OS in late August.
Until that time, customers requiring Solaris 1.1 should use the release
specific part numbers to ensure receiving the correct version. Customer's
who prefer media and documentation which match the pre-installed Desktop
SPARCstations should use the default marketing part numbers. Keep in mind
that Solaris 1.1 Version A will not ship until late August - customers
requiring media or documentation now must use the default part numbers
published in the pricebook.
