Operating Systems Solaris compiled binary file gives "cannot execute binary file"

Hammer & Screwdriver compiled binary file gives "cannot execute binary file"


I have two Solaris machines.
1. SunOS X 5.8 Generic_108528-29 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Blade-1500
2. SunOS Y 5.8 Generic_108528-13 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-60

I am trying to buiild a project on both these machines. The Binary output file compiled on machine 2 runs on both the machines. Where as the binary output file from machine 1 runs only on that machine itself. Smilie

When i copy the binary file from machine 1 to machine 2 and try to run it, it gives me "cannot execute binary file" error. Smilie

On doing ldd <name-of-file> it gives me "execution failed <name-of-file>: Exec format error" Smilie

Running ldd on the same file and on the machine on which it was build, works fine and resolves the dependencies. Smilie

Does any one have any idea why this happeneing? Smilie

I need to migrate from machine 2 to machine 1, but unable to do so cause of this error.
