dd if=/dev/dsk/c0t0d0s2 of=/dev/dsk/c0t1d0s2 bs=1024k And after 30 mins, get error msg like this: dd: unexpected short wite, wrote 409600 bytes, expected 1048576 7774+0 records in 7774+0 records out Any clue? Should I split these two disk to different IDE cable? Thanks!

I have a 20 drive SGI Challenge labelled Clariion unit (circa late 90's I think)- each drive is 7200 rpm 18 gig. The chassis is 2 channel diff scsi, I have each channel connected to its own controller in a U80. Thats all working fine.
Not having experience with raid units, I'm trying out various concepts for allocating the drives, but so far I've been unable to find a configuration that will give me better than 10 megabytes/sec throughput. The local drives in the U80 routinely exc.... read more

Hi all I've just been given two working 220Rs. 1Gb ram in each, two 36Gb Scsi HDDs, and a DVD-rom. (which doesn't boot the Solaris 10 installation DVD. I've just found out that the DVD-rom (TOSH) needs a firmware update. Well that was a waste of 2.5Gb download) Anyhow, I just wondered if there was a 2nd-hand market for them. I'd love to keep them, but I've got no room. There's a lot of instances on eBay, but all seem to be Buy Now, so no bid records. I'm in the .... read more

I have received this error on a port listened to by a Squid server. Is this warning issued prior to reaching the point where pending TCP requests would have been dropped? And if that point is reached, would the counter for tcpListenDropQ0 shown in netstat be greater than 0? Mine is at 0. Thanks.

Hoping that some one has already done this and would be able to answer my questions..
I am looking at the live upgrade guide and I understand that I have to create an empty boot environment with -s option before I can install a flash archive on the disk.
Q) What comprises of the empty boot environment? Once an empty BE is set up, we use the luupgrade and -a/-j/-J the three mutually exclusive options. Crossing out -a option I am confused about the -j and -J option usage -J for an entry from.... read more

IPfilter 4 on a Solaris 9 box. ipmon running, can't ssh in.
Makes no sense. Could anyone PLEASE tell me what on earth could possibly be wrong with the ipf.conf below?? This is supposed to just let in ssh on port 22 but I can NEVER get in once I start ipfilter.
Can get in once I stop ipfilter.
The ipf.conf is: block in on bge0 block out on bge0 pass in log on bge0 proto tcp from 10.156.20.10 port = 22 pass in log on bge0 proto tcp from 10.156.20.11 port = 22 pass in log on bge0 proto tcp f.... read more

Greetings, I was recently faced with this question by a user. Lets say if /usr/oracle is limited (group rw other ---) to only the users in the DBA group, then does it matter if a file in that directory allows other rw.

When I login in as any user on our Solaris 7 server, I get this message: Your password will expire in 26 days. .
I have modified /etc/default/passwd file as following, and have rebooted the server, but I still get the same error message. Here is what /etc/default/passwd looks like: MAXWEEKS=NULL MINWEEKS=NULL PASSLENGTH=6 WARNWEEKS= We do NOT want password to expire at all.
thank you all in advance.

Hi, How would I go about getting the list of procs that are using a particular port, like I have been doing for years using lsof like so: # lsof -i tcp:31337 ? Is there a script I can download and run on a S10 box? Turns out that AMD64 isn't supported in Solaris 10 lsof...

I recently had a set of mirrored disks, under disksuite control go bad. I am able to mount any filesystems that were encapsulated, such as /usr and /, but I am unable to mount anything that was added after disksuite. I have booted the box from cdrom, but how would I now go about mounting the filesystems that are under disksuite control, so that I can recover the data on them? Thanks, AvidFan
