We have the following Sun CPU's:
Sparc4= 110 MHz microSPARC-II
Sparc5= 170 MHz TurboSPARC
E-3000= 167 MHz UltraSPARC

How can I determine if these CPU's are Y2K compliant?
I've searched Sun's WWW site but I only find software
compliance tables.

Thanks for your help!

You may have to contact them and ask them if there are bios updates for these system, as they appear to be older. Do you know the year of manufacture? Generally systems made after 1995 are y2k compliant. Older systems require a bios upgrade and sometimes an Os upgrade.

I hope this helps.

PROVIDING THAT THE SYSTEMS ARE OLDER THEN 2YEARS OLD THEY WILL BE FINE. IF THEY ARE OLDER THEN 2 YEARS THEN IT IS HIGHLY LIKELY THAT THEY WILL NOT CLICK OVER WHEN THE TEAR 2000 COMES.

The Sun hardware was received in June 1997.  I called Sun support about this issue, and
was told that the Sparc4's and Sparc5's are OK;
but the E3000 requires patch# 103346-13.

Do I have to check the manufacturing date on the CPU's?

Do any of you use SymBEL for performance monitoring on Sun?

Thanks for your help!
