Application Compatibility

This section describes the application compatibility issues in the Oracle Solaris 11.4 release.

Cannot Open /etc/TIMEZONE (27840538)

The /etc/TIMEZONE link is obsolete because time zone information is no longer kept in the /etc/default/init file. The /etc/TIMEZONE link is removed in Oracle Solaris 11.4. This missing link can generate warning messages such as the following message from the Enterprise Manager Agent emctl command:

$ emctl status dbconsole
grep: can't open /etc/TIMEZONE
Oracle Enterprise Manager 11g Database Control Release
Oracle Enterprise Manager 11g is running.

Workaround: None. Such warning messages can be ignored.

Panic via supdrvioctl and vboxdrvsolarisioctl (24812986)

Running VirtualBox on an Oracle Solaris x64 host system with Supervisor Mode Access Prevention (SMAP) enabled might panic the host with a message similar to the following:

BAD TRAP: type=e (#pf Page fault) rp=fffffffc802c98e0 addr=ffff80ffbc8ff5e0
occurred in module "<unknown>" due to an illegal access to a user address

Workaround: Run the sxadm disable smap command and reboot before starting VirtualBox.
