2.1i Design Manager - Hang / Segmentation Fault on Solaris 2.7 (SunOS 5.7) from Service Pack 2 environment

Description

Keywords: design manager, seg fault, hang, service pack 2

2.1i_sp2 Design Manager will either hang or seg fault, producing the
following msg:

Segmentation fault (core dumped)

on Solaris 2.7 (SunOS 5.7) environment, but will boot up when invoked
from a Solaris 2.6 (SunOS 5.6) machine.

Solution

NOTE: This issue does not seem to be occurring on all systems

Solaris machines that are being upgraded with patches for Y2k
compliance ( from Solaris 2.6 -> Solaris 2.7), are in certain cases
experiencing the Segmentation Fault described above.

This issue is addressed by installing the SP3 release (or higher), available at:
