Please start with

uname -a

You will be able to identify AIX, Solaris or Linux.

For the different Linux flavours please post what you found and we'll see.

/etc/release

is always a good candidate to check. RHEL has /etc/redhat-release.

woolmilkporc should have received points for this and be the primary accepted solution since he provided the author the command to determine the OS.   My comment could also be considered assisted since it helped to translate the output.  The author accepting his own comment does not fit here since he did not determine the solution himself.

It means that your OS is Solaris, called Oracle Solaris since Oracle absorbed SUN.

It's version 10 of that OS, from August 2011, which is update # 10.

You're running on a SPARC machine.

In detail:

The OS was built in August 2011 and contains s10s_u10wos_17b which means: Solaris 10 for SPARC, "wad of stuff" (not the initial release), 17th build since u10 development started, second respin (b).
