Welcome to the Oracle Solaris Operating System (OS)
Hardware Certification Program for SPARC and x86 systems and components.
This program enables independent hardware
vendors (IHVs), system manufacturers,
system integrators, and end users to check compatibility of their systems and
the Oracle Solaris on SPARC and x86 platforms. You can also test the Oracle Solaris 10 OS or Oracle Solaris 11 OS running as a guest OS on virtual platforms.
Compatibility testing under this program and audit of test results are
criteria for Oracle to list third party systems on the HCL as Certified and to offer support for Oracle Solaris 10 and Oracle Solaris 11 on such systems.
Certification tests for SPARC and x86 products cover only 64-bit architectures. Certification tests cover both the Oracle Solaris 10 OS, Oracle Solaris 11 OS and update releases. Oracle HCTS certification requires 64-bit Oracle Solaris OS.
Certification of systems for Oracle Solaris 11 can be obtained by running Oracle HCTS 5.8 and following the submission process outlined below. Systems currently certified for Oracle Solaris 10 will need to be certified with Oracle Solaris 11 and Oracle HCTS 5.8, following the submission process below, to be listed as Certified.
This page provides the following information
about the Oracle Hardware
Certification Test Suite:
Oracle Hardware Certification Test Suite (Oracle HTCS) - Version 5.8
The Oracle Hardware Certification Test Suite (Oracle HCTS)
is an application to be used to test your system or component to verify that
compatible with the Oracle Solaris on SPARC and x86 platforms. Oracle HCTS enables
test server, desktop and laptop systems and to test many
of components. In May 2017, Oracle released Oracle HCTS 5.8, which
the previous Oracle HCTS 5.7 version.
Note: Submissions using Oracle HCTS 5.7 are not acceptable after August 01, 2017. It is recommended to use Oracle HCTS 5.8 in such cases to make your submissions valid.
Any information that you submit to Oracle using this site or in any subsequent email related thereto (collectively, your
"Submission") shall be at your own risk. Oracle may, in its sole discretion, consider including any hardware you identify
in a Submission on the Oracle Solaris Hardware Compatibility List ("HCL"). However, Oracle shall have no liability and be
under no obligation to you in connection with any Submission you make to Oracle. Oracle may in its sole discretion decide
to discontinue the HCL or include or remove any hardware from the HCL. Your Submission shall also be subject to the
considered "Content" as defined therein. Your Submission confirms your acceptance of these terms.

Hardware Certification for Systems
The Systems Hardware Certification Program
enables system manufacturers to
demonstrate that their systems are compatible with the Oracle Solaris. Systems include desktop systems, laptops, servers,
and integrated components. Certification provides a
higher level of assurance, which customers should consider when
System certification requires two test
machines: a Test Manager system and a
System Under Test.
Set up your systems as described in the
Hardware Certification for Components
The Oracle Solaris Hardware Certification Program for components
enables IHVs to certify that the
components supported by the device drivers under test are compatible
You can use Oracle HCTS 5.8 to certify the following components or device
Serial I/O components
Serial Asynchronous Interface (SAI/P)
USB hard disk, solid-state storage device and multimedia card reader device
USB CD/DVD reader device
USB CD/DVD writer device
USB keyboard device
USB web cam device
External Storage devices
Ethernet Network Switch
Note: The motherboard will be listed as Component on the HCL while it requires to run a Oracle HCTS system certification test on it.
Network, serial I/O, WiFi card, Ethernet network switch and InfiniBand HCA certification require two test machines: a Test
Manager system and a System Under Test.
The other types of certifications require only one test machine.
Set up your systems as described in the
