Gen 8.6 Solaris 11.4 runtime error " open failed"

Recently upgraded the Gen Application Server from Solaris 11.3 to 11.4.    Now started to get Gen code failures looking for shared libraries that appear to have been withdrawn at Solaris 11.4.  One example (of many) is an LDAP library ‘’.  The error reported is:

  • LN5200B: fatal: open failed: No such file or directory

In Solaris 11.3 it appears this library exists but not in 11.4:

  • /usr/lib/ and
  • /usr/lib/sparcv9/



Release : 8.6


In researching Oracle Solaris, found the following 'end of feature notice'  for Solaris 11.3 and 11.4.  On 11.4 it does show as one of the libraries no longer available.  Upon further review we see that It appears that Solaris has deprecated/removed the system's LDAP library and has indicated that the replacement is OpenLDAP in Solaris 11.4. 

Here is that link for reference: 

In Gen, we created a new version of library as we discovered that this library was linked to, and that is no longer needed. This new version is not linked to  This was created within PTF:   RTL86305/LU11602 

Note - Need to apply ALL available PTFs, including this one containing the new version of indicated to prevent errors.
