Some 3rd Party Application S/W may not work if it looks for sysinfo (SI_HW_PROVIDER) values pre-Oracle (Doc ID 1905390.1)

Last updated on JULY 29, 2016

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 10 3/05 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

3rd Party Application tries to confirm the license it is trying to use is running on the correct hardware as it was issued for. It doesn’t expect to see “Oracle Corporation”. As a result, it fails, expecting it to be "Sun_Microsystems"
