Note:This known limitation affects Oracle Beehive Release 1 (1.4.3) and later for the Solaris Operating System (SPARC 64-bit) only.
Bugs 7336591 and 7338531. The Sun Solaris operating system does not support Oracle Beehive voice conferencing. To overcome this limitation on Solaris deployments, you need to install an additional instance of Oracle Beehive on a computer running a supported Linux operating system, and then point to that instance from your Solaris instance using

For more information, including instructions on how to configure a deployment of this kind, please refer to "Configuring Remote Media Server for Oracle Beehive Conferencing" in Oracle Beehive Installation Guide for Solaris Operating System (SPARC 64-Bit).
For performance reasons, Oracle recommends installing a key component of Oracle Beehive Conferencing—the Voice Conferencing Media Server—on its own dedicated computer. This recommendation applies to Oracle Beehive deployments on all supported operating systems.
For more information on how to install and configure the Voice Conferencing Media Server on its own computer, please refer to the following topics, or contact an Oracle Support representative:

Oracle Beehive Conferencing enables users to collaborate through multiplex voice conferences over the Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP). Although the voice conferencing feature is available to all users, Oracle recommends that teams allow no more than six active (simultaneous) speakers during conferences. Conferences that have more than six active speakers may experience a degradation of voice quality, which may require users to stop and restart those conferences. This limitation does not apply to the number of users who listen to conferences, as Oracle Beehive Conferencing supports many simultaneous listeners without any degradation in voice quality.
Note:This issue is resolved in Oracle Beehive Release 1 (188.8.131.52) and later.
Bug 8392092. When users attempt to join conferences in Oracle Beehive Central with Microsoft Internet Explorer 7, Oracle Beehive Conferencing launches correctly. However, when they provide their credentials (as required), instead of joining the conference automatically, they are presented with the list of available conferences again. To join the intended conference, users must then click the conference in the list that is provided.
Users can avoid this extra step by using another supported browser, such as Mozilla Firefox, to join conferences from Oracle Beehive Central.
