Changes

This issue most often occurs after migrating a Java application from older hardware systems, e.g. T4/T5, to T7/M7 Solaris SPARC systems, but it can also occur on new implementations of a Java application on a T7/M7 if the Java version is below Java SE 7 Update 85-b33 or Java SE 8 Update 60.
