1) Booting from different minor releases of Solaris Is there a way to boot from different minor releases of Solaris ? ( e.g.: between Solaris 8 Update 7 vs. Solaris 8 Update 6 ) In linux, I can have multiple kernels installed and during boot, I can choose between any of them ( say, from 2.4.7, 2.4.18, 2.4.19 ).
2) Virtualisation Is there a way to virtualise another instance of Solaris within Solaris itself ... just like what UserMode Linux does ?

I'm pretty new to Solaris but have used Linux for a while. I installed Sun One directory server 5.1 SP1 and the directory service starts and works fine. The admin server however does not. When I attempt to run ns-httpd I get a segfault and a core file. I've used pstack on the core file but I don't understand the output much. Here it is if anyone is interested: # pstack core core 'core' of 21328: ./ns-httpd febdbe34 mutex_unlock (213b0, 7637c, 1, ff0915d8, ff3e2628, fea.... read more

I've backed up the /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s7 filesystem to a 7 tape DLT unit using ufsdump 0lucf IP.IP.IP.IP:/dev/rmt/0n /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s7 No errors occured and it spanned 3 tapes. So I mount the first tape and try a ufsrestore on the server the tape drive is attached to ufsrestore -i /dev/rmt/0 cd /dir/dir/dir add filename extract It asks me to specify the next volume so I use '1' it then asks for the volume name I use /dev/rmt/0 it mounts volume 1 and then later asks me to specify the ne.... read more

Hello, I have an old system (Sun Fire V240, Sun OS 5.9) that I need to break into, no one has the root password. Is there a way I can break into the box and reset the root password? If not, can someone tell me how to re-configure the whole system so I can reuse it? Many thanks! Aja

Can anyone recommend a cheap readily available scsi adapter I can plug into a Blade 100.
Just want to play about with it to learn more about SCSI on a sparc machine so high performance is not necessary.
TIA Paul

Hi.
Here's my question (sorry if OT, i don't think so but..).
I've got solaris 9 x86 installed on a 9gb ide disk on primary slave.
On primay master I've got a 120gb ide disk with only one NTFS primary partition.
I would like to create a partition of 9 gb that could be seen under Solaris in order to use it as a mirror with Solaris Volume Manager (ex SDS).
Now...how could I do it and what kind of requirements should have this partition? I've got Partition Magic 8 but the only a.... read more

I've got myself into a bind. The installation disk that I have for an old tadpole portable is based on sol9 release 0404. It will not except the newer sol9 0904 software disks that I have.
First, can I override the installation program when it will only except a 0404 disk? Or, is there a place on the web to find the 0404 sol9 release? I've searched at sun and can only find the latest.
Thanks, Mark
