Hello, I currently use IBM p505 pServer running virtual AIX servers. The p505 is stuffed with 2 HD and 2 network adapters which are shared accross 5 virtual servers. Each virtual server got his own virtual boot disk plus 2 other virtual disks for mirroring and trainning manipulation.
My question is : I am looking at LDOM/T2000 to get a similar configuration for Solaris admin trainning course. I look at the LDOM which seems to do the job except for the boot device of each virtual servers which mu.... read more

Folks, In my old mainframe days (IBM mainframe that is) we sysprogs used to be able to set what was called a SLIP trap, which would let you say if an instruction is fetched at virt address x, or storage is altered at virtual address x or a branch is taken at virtual address x then do one of more various things like take a dump, trace some data to the system trace facility, stop the whole system, etc.
It there a similar tool, facility, scheme on Solaris? Ideally I'd like to be able to s.... read more

Hi, how does one go about making a file immutable in Solaris? I'm looking for the Linux equivalent of chattr on Linux.
I've looked at the man pages for setacl, etc but they do not seem to do what I am looking for.
Thanks

Hi there, I'm used to admin AIX boxes and wanted to give Solaris 10 a try. I set up the x86 distro onto a ProLiant 1850R but got no network. scanpci tells me there is a Netelligent network adapter but I have no clue how to set it up. On AIX we have something called smitty that can be used for administration tasks when one does not remember the command. Is there something similar on Solaris. I tried smc but this is rubbish. It only shows serial interfaces in the hardware section.
Patric.... read more

Just started working with Solaris and wanted to access the server remotely using Eterm on one of my Linux boxes. This doesn't seem to work very well :( I've taken the Eterm termcap definitions and appended them to /etc/termcap, and run tic on the Eterm.ti file (get an error on line 73).
Echo $TERM gives me 'eterm' but running vi still gives me 'eterm: Unknown terminal type'. Can anybody offer any advice?

I know that this list is only for Solaris OS questions. But I know there many ppl on this list who use Veritas 4.0, Solaris 9.
Need to implement as soon as possible, no time to read the complete Veritas VM manual and figure it out.
I just created a new domain on 12K. Installed Solaris 9 + Veritas VM/FS 4.0.
Able to see the 6 LUNs from a T3+ array. I need to create a striped volume for an oracle database filesystem.

Hi, Is the order of disk on a ZFS pool significant or will that also(as the rest of ZFS) by magic get resolved by the ZFS drivers? I meam, if I unplug a numbers of disks from a JBOD and reinstall them in a diffenet order will the FS still work? /michael

Guidance please.
I'm having trouble making vi work properly when I ssh into a solaris9 e3500 from a linux machine. It says it doesn't know the terminal type and only sees 'linux'.
I know it is a configure issue but I don't know where to look for the info.
Please lead me.
Thanks Michael ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ No free torches, you must also provide the correct answer! +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hi all, I have this workstation uname -a SunOS blade1500 5.10 Generic_118833-33 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Blade-1500 and just inserted Solaris 10 U4 8/07 DVD in it and started to upgrade using the GUI. It fails just at the beginning of the installation. The detail button is completely useless as it shows the log upgrade_log file from the previous upgrade in March.
My question is, if there is any prerequisite or patche that I have to install before start to upgrade or there is a problem with upgrading.... read more

Hi, I have a very strange situation on my x86: I have had a Solaris 10 installation there with all the latest patches (including all the stuff from the time that smpatch(1M) used to work fine), and for the reasons you don't want to know, I have installed Solaris 10 GA on top of it from a DVD using upgrade option. Surprisingly enough, upgrade went fine, but my real surpise came when I did smpatch update It downloaded some 25 patches and installed it, but e.g kernel pat.... read more

Can you imagine a company that releases an IDE (Netbeans 6.0) that supports it's competitors operating systems and NOT it's own? LOL!! You cannot develop a mobile application on Solaris because Netbeans only supports Windows and Linux for this feature!!!! Supporting everyone else but their own, how funny is that. SUN needs more of a Bill Gates to come in there, because if it were him running the company for sure Netbeans would support mobility only on Solaris! Is SUN trying to kill So.... read more

Hi, I hope that someone from Sun and Adobe is reading this.
Will flashplayer 8 be ready on Solaris earlier that 7 was, so we don't have a year of websurfing problems as on player 7.
I really hope that Sun and Adobe will try there best on this.
For a Sparc based WS in 2006 also :) cheers Michael

I've been trying to use the network interface on an installed sunswift sbus card instead of the sparc onboard interface, but local-mac-address? true is ignored by the OS, which returns the same MAC for both interfaces (at least it does if I boot a 2.6 cdrom in single user mode).
The machine is an LX. Has anyone seen this before? It doesn't happen on an Ultra 60.
