This would seem to say that is not possible.

No Right To Make Copies or Share Media
Each person or organization interested in obtaining a free license to use the Solaris Operating System must register directly with Sun, read and accept the terms of the Binary Code License Agreement, and receive the software directly from Sun or its channel partners. This means you cannot transfer a copy of the Solaris binary code or your CDs to anyone outside your company or organization.

Here at we will not engage in such acts that go against any License Agreement that will be in a manner of warez, etc.

To obtain Solaris, you will need to purchase it to abide by the Sun Agreement for their software.

In no means no member here will share or give you a copy that will infringe their License for Solaris.

I am closing this thread at this time for obvious reasons. Regards.
