These release notes are applicable to Sun Remote System Control (RSC) Version 1.0, Firmware Version 1.12.
The only supported server is the Sun Enterprise 250 server, running the Solaris 2.6 5/98, Solaris 7, or Solaris 7 3/99 operating environments.
The Sun Enterprise 250 flash PROM must be updated to version 3.7.7 or later before installing the RSC software. Failing to do so may cause server and RSC malfunctions. For update instructions and a downloadable image, see the Sun Enterprise 250 Supplement Web page at http://sunsolve2.Sun.COM/sunsolve/E250/flash.html. If you install RSC from the Solaris 7 3/99 Sun Computer Systems Supplement CD, you can update the flash PROM as part of the installation process.

As of Solaris 7 3/99, SunVTS 3.1 supports the diagnostic testing of the RSC with a test called rsctest. The rsctest is automatically installed when SunVTS is installed. For more information on the SunVTS diagnostic, refer to the SunVTS 3.1 User's Guide which is part of the Solaris 7 on Sun Hardware AnswerBook collection. It is also available at http://docs.sun.com.
RSC paging requires that the customer's paging service adhere to the TAP protocol. Paging services in the Americas and Europe generally are TAP-compliant, but this is not necessarily so in other locales.
