The last major revision of IRIX was 6.5.30 released in August 2006
SGI No longer offers patches for security problems with IRIX
SGI went bankrupt in 2008 and sold all assets to Rackable Computing
We offer updated packages for OpenSSH and Samba on IRIX
So, why replace your SGI IRIX systems when PARSEC can still support them?
No matter what type of Silicon Graphics systems you have, or what version of IRIX you run, we can help. Our staff has experience with IRIX since version 4.x, so even if your own staff hasn't had to touch the operating system for years, the staff at PARSEC has up-to-the-minute expertise ready to help!
PARSEC IRIX support covers these areas, and much more:
OS problem determination
XFS/CXFS provisioning and maintenance operations
XLV volume management operations
C2 Security setup and operations
Network setup and troubleshooting
Dump analysis for problem determination
Legacy support for IRIX 4.x and 5.x revisions
Cloning and migration
SAN operations and troubleshooting
IRIX Patching Capabilities
Vendors typically stop producing patches for end-of-life operating systems, even for critical issues. If you are faced with this or a similar issue, we can provide key fixes and patches that are not available from SGI. These patches can be provided for key services such as Secure Shell, which usually cannot be disabled as a workaround for a critical flaw. We have the expertise to create a limited set of new base packages for IRIX, so long as a code-fix is freely available, to cover these issues and provide a real fix for your IRIX systems.
Here is a list of issues for which PARSEC can provide internally sourced non-SGI replacement patches for critical vulnerabilities. Note that this list covers (more than) all default IRIX network services:
Network Time Protocol
Telnet, rsh, rlogin, and rexec (though customers should really migrate these to SSH, since these are unencrypted services anyway)
Talk, ntalk, and writesrv
inetd and its internal services
We specifically cannot provide patches for these situations:
Most local-only privilege escalation issues
SGI or 3rd party drivers
IRIX-specific proprietary software where no open source analog or public source code exists
