|Transitioning From Oracle Solaris 10 to Oracle Solaris 11.1 Oracle Solaris 11.1 Information Library|
The Oracle Solaris 11.1 operating system (OS) is the first update of the latest major Oracle Solaris release, Oracle Solaris 11 11/11. An operating system for the enterprise environment, Oracle Solaris 11.1 is an integral part of Oracle's combined hardware and software portfolio. If you are moving from Oracle Solaris 10 to an Oracle Solaris 11 release, you might have some questions. The purpose of this guide is to provide answers to some of those questions.
Note - This book contains cumulative information for anyone who is transitioning from Oracle Solaris 10 to an Oracle Solaris 11 release. Important information about feature differences between Oracle Solaris 11 and Oracle Solaris 11.1 is also provided, when appropriate. For specific details about transitioning from Oracle Solaris 10 to the Oracle Solaris 11 11/11 release, see Transitioning From Oracle Solaris 10 to Oracle Solaris 11.
