For reference: Solaris 9 EOL
In short it means Solaris 9 is no longer eligible for any Oracle updates
including security updates, fixes, patches or any other changes. Solaris 9
went into sustaining support in October 2014.
Since Oracle is no longer providing any patches for this OS, I don't see much
reason for us to either. Fortunately you are free to patch and build OpenLDAP
for yourself for as long as you wish.
