I am enquiring if its possible to migrate a SPARC Solaris environment with dSoruces and VDBs to an Intel x86 Solaris box.

Can you confirm if this is possible?

Also is Solaris x86 supported by Delphix?

Hello Thom,

Thank you for contacting us.

The direct migration of Oracle dSource from SPARC to x86_64 processes is not supported due to byte-order differences between the two processor architectures. SPARC (big-endian) and x86_64 (little-endian). For example a SPARC dSource must provision a VDB to a SPARC environment, not to a x86_64 environment.

Please see this document for more information on our compatiblity:


-Also is Solaris x86 supported by Delphix?

As seen in the above document Solaris [10U5 - 10U11, 11U1, 11U2] is supported on x86_64

Please feel free to contact me or support if you have any further questions.

Kind Regards.

Adam Smith.
