Please review the fix at


The no-native-provider.conf file put SUN and SunRsaSign as the first 2 security providers and thus shadows the OracleUcrypto and SunPKCS11 providers used by Solaris. Please note that duplicated provider names are silently ignored so this is harmless. On other platforms, the first 2 providers are already SUN and SunRsaSign.

I ran the test 200 times on solaris-sparcv9 and it does not fail once. Before this fix, it always fails on this platform.

An alternative fix is to simply exclude the test from solaris-sparc using `@requires os.family != "solaris"`. I've fixed some other security/tools test failures using this solution. The reason is that these tests are testing platform-independent behaviors so it's OK to skip one platform. I don't think this test is platform-dependent in any way.
