Smart Update Fails: On a Solaris/x86 configuration, you cannot upgrade your configuration from a pre-SP5 version of WebLogic Platform 8.1 to WebLogic Platform 8.1 SP5 by using the Smart Update tool. To upgrade to 8.1 SP5 on a Solaris/x86 configuration, use the upgrade installer, instead.
For more information about known issues with any components of this release, see the appropriate Release Notes document. For a complete list of Release Notes supporting WebLogic Platform 8.1, see:
