VPN configuration for Solaris 8 and Solaris 10
Would anybody happen to have a working configuration handy? I need to
set up a Solaris 8 and 10 machine (two machines) to offer a duplicate
of the console(s) via the VPN. Both are double-headed (two monitors).

I'm afraid what you're asking for isn't clear. You seem to be asking for

Can anybody tell how to configure SNMP in solaris 10. The older
versions of Solaris we are editing the file: /etc/snmp/conf/snmp.conf.
and restarting the service /etc/init.d/S76.snmpdx.
But, how can we achieve it in Solaris 10. Please guide me.
Thanks in advance..

As I am quiet new in the Solaris field, question arises in my mind, if
I get training on Solaris 10, can I easily work on Solaris 9 or Solaris

If any company works on Solaris 9 boxes, whom he will give preference
first, Solaris 9 Admin or Solaris 10 Admin, or it does not matter on
Solaris version ?
Thanks in advance.

Yes. On two disks, easily. On one disk it's more involved, but IIRC is

things like share /, /usr etc.
Alternatively, investigate LiveUpgrade which makes the whole process a

normally when I install a new version of Solaris. I use a full
automatic installation and call cfengine later on to do the system
configuration. But at the moment I am in an environment where cfengine
does not exist. So I would like to know if there is a way to tell
Solaris that it should install the newest available version of the
installed packages and new extra dependencies. Or is there any other
update mechanism to lift a system from Solaris 10 11/06 to Solaris 10
08/07 without reinstalling it manually.

Soon I'll be receiving my first Sun workstation (W2100z) with Solaris 9
and Java Desktop 2 preinstalled.
As a user fairly new to Solaris - I've been using Linux as main OS since
last August, Windows for years prior to that - would I be best off
utilizing the preinstalled Solaris 9 or installing Solaris 10? I've
been leaning towards Solaris 10 and just wanted some 'professional'
inputs on the idea.
My primary goal is learning Solaris and I won't mind reinstalling
Solaris 10 later in the year when all the other features are fully

Hi there, I have an old Sun Box, is an Ultra SPARC-IIi 300MHz, right now I
am using Solaris 9. I have a two parts question, first one is, can I
install Solaris 10 on this machine?, maybe is just to outdated for it.
Second question is, can I download all the Solaris 9 software from
"www.sun.com" as DVD, into a Windows XP box, them burn them as a DVD, will
it work on my Sun Box?, or once I download them in to the Windows box, do
I have to expand each zip file, them burn them into a DVD, and again the
same question will it work on the Sun Box?
