Solaris 11.4 support

Is there any intention for Veritas to support Solaris 11.4, which is now GA?  I attempted to upgrade from 11.3 to 11.4, and Foundation Suite and InfoScale both have major issues, pirmarily around VXIO.  There are clear compatibility issues.

Hi, 

Our support policy for supporting the new Sol OS version is 90 days after the OS GA. So support will be available for InfoScale 7.3.1 by end of Nov 2018.

Here is the link which has more details on the support cadance - https://confluence.community.veritas.com/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=134941639

Regards,

Re: Solaris 11.4 support

Is there any update as to when Infoscale will support Solaris 11.4. 

The 11.4 GA date was 28 August 2018, which is now more then 90 days.

Re: Solaris 11.4 support

It's Now December 3rd and still now update.  We have hundreds of upgrades on hold because we cannot get Veritas Infoscale storage to work.   Can you update us, please?

Re: Solaris 11.4 support

Hello

We are working to support Solaris 11.4 with various (prioritized) InfoScale versions. We are closely working with Oracle as well. Expect the support in Q1 of CY19.

Thank You.

Re: Solaris 11.4 support

Please keep us abreast of what happens in this forum, if possible.  I look to this page for info on the 11.4 support.

 

Thank you

Re: Solaris 11.4 support

Is there any news on a possible update?

@Bhooshan_Thakar

Are you a Veritas employee with more info than the 'common folk'?

Is there an update on this?

Re: Solaris 11.4 support

We are hanging in the wind here waiting for some info..  Someone from Veritas and Oracle needs to address this.  There are major fixes and new features in Solaris 11.4 that we have been desperately waiting for, but we can't do anything about it.. Do major corporations like mine need to start focusing our attention on moving off of infoscale and solely to ZFS before Veritas puts more effort into getting this resolved?

Re: Solaris 11.4 support

I would suggest to open a Support Ticket and escalate that. Might help more then hoping on an update here.

Re: Solaris 11.4 support

Sol 11.4 support is now available on IS 7.4.1.

Thanks,

Full version software can be downloaded from VEMS, using your Entitlement ID on your license certificate.

Herewith a step-by-step guide for Backup Exec, but it applies to all Veritas software :
