    display variable

    609621
      Dear all,

      11.5.9 on solaris 10

      Currently we have set display variable to a sun machine which has a display hardware. now, this display server needs to be removed. we dont have any sun machine which has a display hardware
      attached to it..

      Is it neccessary to have a machine which has a display hardware ?. is there any workaround ?
      since the current OS is sun, is it necessary to have the display hardware also running in SUN?

      Please advise

          Yes - a display variable needs to be set - this is a requirement.

          If you do not have physical display hardware, you can use an emulator such as Xvfb or VNC

            Kai,
            Is it neccessary to have a machine which has a display hardware ?.
            It is mandatory, otherwise you will receive REP-3000 error.
            is there any workaround ?
            Please see these docs.

            since the current OS is sun, is it necessary to have the display hardware also running in SUN?
            No, you can set the DISPLAY to any other server.
