    Default Solaris Port

    I'm with sf_basilix, have any estimates on a Solaris port?

    I have been working on a Solaris port (unofficial, I'm nothing to do with Zimbra). It's 99% finished, got the packages and installer all finished, i'm just fixing the installer script itself then will release. Hopefully I'll get time to finish it this weekend, I'll release an Solaris 10 x86 package first then get my ancient UltraSparc IIi creaking into action and will probably take about a week to build the SPARC release

    Talking

    dijichi2,
    Awesome! I will be deploying it on a Sun Fire x2200 M2 w/6.5GB of RAM in a Zone!

    I do have an E420r w/ 4x450MHz & I think 3 or 4GB of RAM that I can create you an account on for development/builds.

    It's been turned off for a couple of months, so I have no problem reloading with Solaris 10U3 and giving you free reign, if that would help.

    If interested, send me a PM.

    Thanks for your hard work!

    I'm glad to hear that Zimbra has finally been ported to Solaris! We have a bunch of old UltraSPARC II machines here (4x400/450 MHz and 4GB RAM), but I don't think I can lend them out for development. I would however be more than glad to do testing with them.

    same here - I have a Ultra 40 M2 (AMD Based Sun workstation) and an Ultra 30 (SPARC Based Sun workstation) that I will be happy to run extensive testing on once it's available.

    Thanks dijichi2 and all others who have helped port this to Solaris!!!!

    Default Solaris brings additional debugging features

    One additional point I'd like to add for Solaris is that Solaris tools like DTrace will make hunting down performance issues in Zimbra a lot easier. I've been helping a sysadmin troubleshoot Zimbra performance on CentOS and while Linux has some ok tools, nothing compares to DTrace for tracking issues in Java, C, and all the way up into the kernel.

    dtrace is awesome! hopefully we can build up a library of dtrace scripts that will become useful future along the way. who knows, maybe someday solaris will become THE dev platform for zimbra ))

    Hello dijichi2:

    How has your port for Solaris come along? Just as I suspected Zimbra is making waves. I was reminded of them when I noticed today's post on slashdot. The article can be found here:

    http://slashdot.org/articles/07/05/07/1555234.shtml

    I enjoyed their comment on it possibly being an "open source Exchange killer". Here's to hoping for the Solaris ports!!!!

    To any Zimbra moderators - any updates as of yet that you can post?

    Thanks!

    hiya, solaris port is largely finished. i've put the port on hold until the source tree is reopened - i know zimbra is hard at work on 4.5.4 and 5.0beta so hopefully they will reopen after they release them.

    Updates about what? If you mean a Solaris port then dijichi2 is your man for that.
