Reinstall HDLM Solaris 10 lost path Hi,
I am using HDLM 5.61-/A on a Solaris 10 box.
HDLM is used both for load balancing and failover
I had one metadevice defined over hdlm drives, but I had to fully
reinstall HDLM with the following command sequence :
reboot -- -r
pkgadd -d . DLManager
shutdown -g0 -y -i6
- hdlm is working OK (dlnkmgr view -sys, dlnkmgr view -path, ...)
- hdlm drive can be accessed
If I do create a new metadevice over the hdlm drives, the expected
features are OK (load balancing and failover)
on the formal metadevices (created before the uninstall/reinstall

It will not upgrade my solaris 10 of CD or jumpstart.

Sun Solaris Certification Dear all:

As I am quiet new in the Solaris field, question arises in my mind, if

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

Thanks in advance.

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

Alternatively, investigate LiveUpgrade which makes the whole process a

Read the information from the download section of
Solaris 9 or Solaris 10 for newbie? 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
integrated [ZFS, Janus, etc.]. I'v...
Solaris 10: Why SunOS 5.10? I've been curious about this for a while.
Given that Solaris 10 is such a big departure from the Solaris 2.x/7/8/9

of a major version change to me.

Keepalive in Solaris Express and Solaris 10 Is there any way to discover when features introduced in Solaris
Express will find their way into Solaris 10 or 11?
The one I'm particularly interested in is the per-socket TCP keepalive
tunables which were introduced in Solaris Express 4/05. I'd be grateful
for any information on availability of this feature in Solaris 10.

tar from Solaris 8 to Solaris 10? On a Solaris 10 platform, can I extract a tarfile of a directory hierarchy
which was created on a Solaris 8 platform? UIDs and GIDs are identical on
two systems. I am concerned about any changes in ufs that might affect
this. I'd like to avoid "time bombs".

Firewalling a zone on Solaris 10 10/09 Hello guys
I have Solaris 10 10/09 (16 September 2009) on a T5120, and I'd like to restrict the (especially outgoing) IP communication of a zone to specific target systems.
Currently, the physical network is connected to e1000g0, and the zone is assigned an IP configured on e1000g0:1. I'd prefer to keep it that way, but if necessary I could dedicate a physical interface to the zone.
I gather that this release pre-dates a lot of the VNIC/Crossbow stuff, and I have a bit of trouble finding the right docs. Can this be done at all with this release?
If yes, do I need to use ...

tcsh and setenv: Solaris 8 to Solaris 10 The version of tcsh in Solaris 10 is newer than that in 8 (8 is
6.10.00, 10 is 6.12.00), and, it turns out, subtly incompatible: setenv
in 6.10.00 allows hyphens in variable names, but in 6.12.00 it doesn't.
And lo, we have environment variable names with hyphens, buried in
some vast tangled mass of vendor code.
Tragically, clubbing the people who wrote these scripts to death is not
an option (they're in a different country and arranging extradition etc
would take ages).
Does anyone know if there is any compatibility thing I can set to make
it work the way it did in 8 (yes, I've...
