Im evaluating Etude and Im not sure if it is free or not if I do not want a
"What are the software components of the offering?
The Migration Assistant software captures the entire environment of the
source system and then transfers this environment to a Solaris Container
running on the target Solaris 10 system.
A one year right to use (RTU) for this software is included. Please note that
the license is not perpetual.
Solaris 8 Migration Assistant 1.0 is now available for download."
So it says a 1 year RTU is included.
But on a download page - http://www.sun.com/download/products.xml?id=470c4a45
"Note: This download comes with an evaluation license for a period of 90 days
from your first use.
For full support please contact your Sun sales team for the full RTU
and service subscription."
So is it 1 year or 90 days?
Then in FAQ theres:
"This subscription does not impact the Solaris 8 right-to-use.
Customers must have a valid Solaris 8 license and either a Solaris 10
Premium Subscription or a Sun System Gold or Platinum Service Plan.
Customers can test out the Solaris 8 Migration Assistant as it is available via
however, in order to get support for the software, customers must purchase the
Enterprise Migration Implementation Service.
You can find some answers I got from Marc Hamilton
There are three distinct RTU licenses needed to use Solaris 8 Migration
1) RTU for Solaris 8, 2) RTU for Solaris 10, 3) RTU for the Solaris 8
Migration Assistant tool itself.
Solaris 10 RTU is available at no cost. Sun has never offered no cost RTU for
Solaris 8 because
at the time of its release, most customers acquired their Solaris 8 RTU with
their Sun hardware.
The RTU for the Solaris 8 Migration Assistant itself is also no cost.
We are not including a free Solaris 8 RTU with the product because we assume
that customers who have Solaris 8
hardware they obtained through authorized channels would already have a valid
license and providing a free Solaris 8
license would only benefit customers who had obtained grey market equipment
from unauthorized resellers
or other non-licensed sources. The wording around "customers must purchase the
Implementation Service to install the Solaris 8 Migration Assistant" is
incorrect, I will have it changed.
So if I do not want a support it is for free right?
