Hi, I'm trying to figure out how you determine the tftp daemon version. I need to make sure that the version I have can support >32MB file transfers. My understanding is that the newer versions can do that.
TIA, -Tennis -- Remove -remove-to-reply to respond to my email address directly.

1) I would like to know if someone has a howto on how to setup IP multipathing? 2) how many IP addresses does it take to setup multipathing when one uses 2 interfaces? I would like to setup a server that has 2 interfaces connected on two seperate switches sharing the same vlan. the server will need to respond to requests using one public facing address even one interface failover.
Ony help on this matter would be great.
Frank

i thought i had this working at one point, i guess not.
i've been through the advanced installation guide. it doesn't mention the acpi-user-options bit, so i'm wondering what else there is to read, for one thing....
well, anyway.
i put together a boot floppy, from a downloaded d1_image. on close inspection, it looks like it's missing a number of things, namely the solaris/bootenv.rc file, the whole drivers directory, on and on. the boot floppy does have: rules rules.ok the mac.... read more

Hi all, I need to attach a SCSI tape drive to my X4200 (sepcifically, a Sun badged DDS3 drive) so that I can perform backups. The X4200 uses low profile PCI-X slots, so I was wondering if someone could recommend a suitable HBA that'll work out of the box with Solaris 10 6/06. I could go for a Sun-branded one, I suppose, but I need to keep a close eye on the shekels...
Looking around the LSI LOgic web site, it seems that the LSI 20160L would be a good choice (knowig that many (all?) of Sun&.... read more

Hey there, I don't seem to have this library and gcc definitely doesn't like it.
Does anyone know off the top of their head which package(s) it comes from? And, actually, what's a good way to figure that kind of thing out? Thanks!!!! Jen --------------------------------------------------- I can't say I was ever lost, but I was bewildered once for three days.

Here is my problem.
I have a collection of HP printers, with JetDirect cards, fed from a Solaris 5.7 box. Printing works without any problems from Windows hosts, other Solaris hosts and, of course, the local host. (The Windows boxen are connecting via Samba.) The problem is our collection of RH9.0 hosts, using CUPS, stopped printing a week or two back and simply refuse to work again. The jobs are shown as queued by 'lpstat -t' on the Solaris box, but there are no files in /var/spool/l.... read more

If zfs can mirror disks, where does that leave SVM? Is SVM going the way of the dodo eventually? Thanks!

I scored a nice SGI Challenger disk array (rebranded Clarion, it seems) from our excess facility, and I'm working it up to go onto our U80. From testing various configurations, it seems like I'll get the best throughput by splitting the drives into 2 independent striped sets, individually served by one of the two scsi interfaces on the chassis- then let Solaris do the mirroring. R5 on the Challenger is <really> slow- my U2 does better in software.
I imagine other ways of setting .... read more

Hi, I am running OSX 2010.11 on AMD and have big problems after a crash for two days ago.
When trying to import a ZFS pool it hungs after 31 of 250 filesystems.
The process zpool-pool00/146 is running at 33% on one CPU forever as it seams.
For some time ago when also having pool import issues under S10 I had do add in /etc/system set zfs:zfs_recovery=1 set aok=1 But this no longer works under OSX 2010.11 according to log when booting.
