Today we released version 2009.Q2.0.0, the first major software update for the Sun Storage 7000 series. It includes a bunch of new features, bug fixes, and improvements. Significantly for users of the Sun Storage 7000 simulator, the virtual machine version of the 7000 series, this is the first update that supports the VMs. As with a physical 7000 series appliance, upgrade by navigating to Maintenance > System, and click the + icon next to Available Updates. Remember not to ungzip the update binary — the appliance will do that itself. We’ll be releasing an update VM preinstalled with the new bits so stay tuned.
Note: There were actually two releases of the VMware simulator. The first one came right around our initial launch, and the version string is ak-2008.11.07. This version cannot be upgraded so you’ll need to download the updated simulator whose version is ak-2008.11.21. As noted above, we’ll soon be releasing an updated VM with 2009.Q2.0.0 (ak-2009.04.10.0.0) preinstalled.
