Re: HSM on Solaris
I ran into the same problems - I wanted to run HSM on a Sparcserver1000 with
multiple CPUS running Solaris 2.5.1. I submitted a SHARE requirement requesting
support for these configurations. SHARE is in March I believe, so I may hear
something from that. If I do I'll let you know.
