[SunRay-Users] which OS

Can you tell us if the transition from 4.2 EA to the production release "in early November" will be an upgrade, or fresh install?  I have 4.2 EA on our dev systems right now, but have been hesitant to put deploy it further.

Thanks,
Bill

Folks,

*Nobody* should be trying to install 4.1 on OpenSolaris or SXCE at this 
point. We should clean up our TWiki and respective (now obsolete) blogs, 
to avoid sending people down the wrong path.

The 4.2 Early Access release is publically available and works much better:
https://cds.sun.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP.enfinity/WFS/CDS-CDS_SMI-Site/en_US/-/USD/ViewProductDetail-Start?ProductRef=SRS-5-EA2-SP-LX-G-B@CDS-CDS_SMI

At this point, the only manual steps required with the EA2 release are:
- disable NWAM (on OpenSolaris)
- Install the additional packages (on OpenSolaris)
- install SRSS (don't reboot yet)
- Apply the GDM stanza to /etc/pam.conf
- Apply the workaround to loginGUI.start, if using an older build such 
as OS2009.06 (not necessary for b125)
- reboot

If you are going to attempt to use the Desktop Access Client (aka soft 
client) you'll need to edit the /etc/sock2path file before the reboot 
(and make sure to enable the "-u pseudo" policy and probably the "-M" 
policy as well so you can access your session both from DTUs and your 
soft client).
