SAP on SOLARIS on VMWare -- DELL ?

Friends, I noticed that Dell does not have hardware certified to run SAP on Solaris -> http://www.saponsolaris.com/hwlist.html

However I have a quest that requires SAP -> on Solaris -> on DELL

One of the solutions was virtualized Solaris and install SAP on Solaris: SAP -> on Solaris -> on VMWare -> on DELL

In the topic below there is a mention that SAP does not support this type of installation, but without any reference to any SAP Note:

ERP6 EHP4 SOLARIS 10 Sparc,Oracle 10g in a virtual envirn swap size requir

Do you know any case that could help me?

thank you

    Dell was a reseller of Solaris (native iron only), however since oracle bought SUN, solaris is no longer supported on DELL (big mistake on oracles part I personallty think, it could have been a good Linux alternative).

    Solaris on VMware again not supported, likely only on Oracles own Xen fork and again only on Oracle hardware.

    Hi,

    Can you check the link below

    VMware documents regarding SAP products

    It has good information for SAP on VMWare.

    Hope this is useful.

    Regards,

    If I understand the license policy of Oracle Solaris properly, the only valid way of running Solaris entitled is on hardware you bought by Sun/Oracle.

    There is no note because it is not supported. There are no Solaris specific VMWare tools available, there will be no integration in the monitoring becaues of that and hance it's not supported officially.

    We had likewise problems and we will switch all Solaris boxes to Linux subsequently.
