I am trying to install software onto Solaris 10 x86_64. I am getting OS kernel parameter errors for TCP and UDP:

udp_largest_anon_port -- Expected value=65500; Actual value=65535
udp_smallest_anon_port -- EV=900; Actual value=32768
tcp_largest_anon_port -- Expected value=65500; Actual value=65535
tcp_smallest_anon_port -- EV=900; Actual value=32768


Using the runInstaller (OUI) that comes with RDBMS software
