Failing To Install Solaris Studio 12.4 On Solaris OS 11.3 (Doc ID 2304441.1)

I am trying to install solaris studio 12.4 on solaris 11.3 updated to SRU-28. The document 2304441.1 says I should be using the repository. However when I try that I get:


pkg set-publisher -G '*' -g -k /export/home/metatst/ -c /export/home/metatst/ solarisstudio

pkg set-publisher: The origin URIs for 'solarisstudio' do not appear to point to a valid pkg repository.

Please verify the repository's location and the client's network configuration.

Additional details:

Unable to contact valid package repository:

Encountered the following error(s):

Transport errors encountered when trying to contact repository.

Reported the following errors:

https protocol error: code: 401 reason: Unauthorized

URL: ''

Additional Details:

This account is not entitled to access this repository. Ensure that the correct

certificate is being used and that the support contract for the product being

accessed is still valid.

The license agreement required to access this repository has not been

accepted yet or the license agreement for the product has changed. Please go to and accept the license for the product you are

trying to access.


However I cannot see how to request access to the solaris studio support repository.

    I should have mentioned that I can access the release repository which is selected from the downloads page. The information on the certificate page says:


    Your Certificate

    This is your certificate to authenticate your client to It is valid for every repository hosted on However, to download packages from a certain repository you will have to request access first. You can do that on the Repositories page.


    But it does not give access to the support repository. And I can't see any link to request access to it.
