Support Status for Virtualized Environments

Oracle has not certified Oracle Solaris on other virtualized environments. Oracle Support will assist customers running Oracle Solaris on these environments in the following manner: Oracle will only provide support for issues that either are known to occur on the bare metal or one of the certified virtualized environments, or can be demonstrated not to be as a result of running on a virtual environment.

If a problem is a known Oracle issue, Oracle support will recommend the appropriate solution on the native OS.  If that solution does not work in the virtualized environment, the customer will be referred to the virtual environment vendor for support. When the customer can demonstrate that the Oracle solution does not work when running on the bare metal or one of the certified virtualized environments, Oracle will resume support, including logging a bug with Oracle Development for investigation if required.

If the problem is determined not to be a known Oracle issue, we will refer the customer to the virtual environment vendor for support. When the customer can demonstrate that the issue occurs when running on the bare metal or one of the certified virtualized environments, Oracle will resume support, including logging a bug with Oracle Development for investigation if required.
