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.

Hi I have a need to fire off several cobol processes simultaneously from a shell script run by cron.

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.

Greetings, Is it possible to convert an E250's internal SCSI backplane from ultra SCSI to U320 SCSI by simply adding a U320 board and connecting a U320 ribbon cable to the backplane? TIA for any and all responses/pointer/suggestions, --Duncan

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

I have this PC bucket I run Solaris9 4/04 on.
I bought the Adaptec 39160 SCSI controller (/kernel/drv/cadp160) for the explicit purpose of running the machine as a storage server.
Then, in a really slick maneuver, I managed to acquire an entire Ultra Enterprise2 system, which included a Sun MultiPack (which is what I was after).
The idea was to hook up the MultiPack to a now USCSI 160 enabled bucket and have a really nice external SCSI enclosure, especially since the MultiPack supports SCA .... read more

Hello, Has anybody some idea why Solaris 10 doesn't have sendmail compiled with SASL support? I mean, sendmail binary is implicitly linked to libsasl, but program itself is compiled without SASL support. It has STARTLS, but if I want to make MTA with SMTP AUTH I must compile cyrus-sasl, and then sendmail and who knows what else.
Second: There was recent (and finally!) latest update of samba package with patch 119757-04 which has in README file this note: 6332751 Samba is not compiled with.... read more

Does Solaris support changing the prompt in ways DOS used to? Can it be set so instead of just a '$' it shows the path like the 'pwd' command does or old DOS prompt 'C:stuffinhere>' Can someone either point me to a man page or give me a quick howto? Thanks! a/k/a Brian

HI I have problem with NFS beetwen two machines with Solaris 10.
I'm sharing one directory from one machine with Sol 10. On another machine with the same system I mounted this directory.
When I copy (cp -p) files from local directory to shared directory files have the same owner as user who copy. On both machines passwd shadow, group are the same.
I think it is something with nfs version because on machines with Solaris 9 copied files have their owners but under Sol 10 don't.
Any ideas .... read more
