Unfortunately I have not had any such luck to run any version of Solaris under 
the sparc64 emulation. It definitely works to run 32-bit Solaris 2.6, 7, 8, and 
9 on the 32-bit sparc emulation however. If your application is 32-bit only 
(and only uses SPARCv8 or less instructions) then you can get this to work, but 
I don't think you'll be able to take the disk images from the Ultra 5. Much 
better to just install a fresh copy of Solaris and then copy over all the items 
you need (binaries, scripts, configurations, etc) to make your application 
work. I've only gotten it to work using old Sun firmware (linked below on 
artyom's page) not OpenBIOS, and only with 1 virtual CPU, and the max amount of 
memory using a SPARCstation-20 model is 512 MB, but this is enough for what I 

There are some good guides for example -
