Thank you so much for your reply . Can you please do me favor and let me know if here is an solution to "Virtualize" UltraSPARC plat on Intel-based plat ? I found the Virtualbox as an solution to install guest OS on host OS . To this end , I can install Solaris guest on Windows host . But I need to run UltraSPARC Solaris . Is there any solution in this regard ?
Thank you in advance

Ooops, my bad. I knew that qemu support sparc, but missed that UltraSparc is something different

I am doubtful if RH7.2 is the distribution that you want and should deploy. It is so old, not many RH guys would remember it using. You should be looking at something that is current. Like RHEL5.4 or CentOS5.4 Final if you want to keep up with Red hat.

Indeed, see the wiki pages here for details of dates etc:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RHL
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CentOS

Unless you've got a very good reason not to, get the latest Centos (or RHEL if you're willing to pay for support).

Please open your own thread, for your own questions. Don't tack them on to a thread that's been closed for months.

And RH7.2 is ancient. Highly doubtful it would support any newer hardware, and if it did, probably would get some interesting results. Kinda like trying to install Windows 3.1 on an 64bit CPU.

In my opinion, I'd never deploy anything that old...lots of speed and security improvements have been made over the years, along with the new hardware support. Add to that, the fact that any new software you'd want to deploy, probably wouldn't, since everything you're running is hopelessly out of date.

hi,

yes, i am aware that RH7.2 is totally outdated, but this is one of the requirement for our hardware migration as there is one in-house application that was previously developed for RH7.2 and that is the only version it will run. So, if anyone had ever install this OS on a 4CPU 32-bit hardware or above, would appreciate for the sharing.

Thanks again all.

rgds,

William

update that application - there is "no,if,and's or buts".

Think of it this way .
TRY to Install Windows 95 or 3.1 on your new 4 cpu servers and try to run a Windows 3.1 or 95 app .

installing RH 7.2 and running a RH 7.2 app will be just as hard as doing that for a very old Windows one
very hard and edging on the imposable .

about the only way i could think of it to install the current RHEL 5.4 and run RH 7.2 as a virtual system.

You can try use Ermine (http://magicErmine.com) or statifier (http://statifier.sf.net) on your RH7.2 box to convert that application to self-containing executable.

This executable should run on any other modern Linux.

Another option is install RH7.2 on your new server as virtual machine
(VirtualBox, VMWare - whatever)
