Dear experts,

How do I find out if my UNIX server is 32 or 64 bit? I only know it is SunOX5.8.

Thanks.

I don't beleive that 5.8 (aka Solaris 8) runs on the older 32-bit-only hardware.

Clarification of earlier comment.

Solaris 8 will run 32 bit on old hardware. Some hardware may need a prom upgrade to make it suitable for 64 bit.

thanks, but I got different answer from Oracle.
When I used your suggestion to test my machine, I got 64 bit, but Oracle suggests me to use

% cd $ORACLE_HOME/bin
% file oracle ...if 64bit, '64bit' will be indicated.

I got 32 bit. ?
