So I previously, and ecstatically, posted about running Solaris 10 in a VM. While that worked nicely, there was a killer detail I overlooked. The goal was to run Documentum Content Server in that VM. But, alas, the installer is for an UltraSPARC processor so the bundled JRE failed miserably.
While there might be a way to trick the basic Linux installer to work in an Intel/Solaris-10 configuration, it is more prudent to switch over to CentOS 5.3 to emulate a RHEL 5.3 install. Oracle can be coerced into installed on CentOS 5.3 (did it for Fedora Core a couple years ago), and the EMC|Documentum CS is none-the-wiser about the RHEL clone (well… I’m hoping that is still the case).
Today drips with geekdom, and it is good.
