Book description

Solaris 10 System Administration Part II

Exam CX-310-202

Bill Calkins

In this book you’ll learn Advanced Topics in Solaris 10

System Administration for SPARC and x86-based systems including:

  • Administering the network environment in Solaris 10

  • Setting up RAID metadevices using SVM

  • Configuring ZFS storage pools and file systems

  • Configuring and administering Solaris zones and containers

  • Administering virtual file systems and swap space

  • Creating and administering user and Role-Based access accounts (RBAC)

  • Using advanced installation tools to install, clone, and upgrade the operating system

  • Bill’s original Cert Prep guides were used throughout Sun’s service organization as the SEs studied for Certification. This was not mandated by Sun management but happened through word-of-mouth by those software engineers who had successfully passed the exam. In this new edition, Bill adds a chapter for ZFS. It includes Live Upgrade conversion to a ZFS root filesystem and Zone/ZFS inter-operation. Plus, all chapters have been updated to reflect the Solaris 10 10/08 enhancements. This new guide remains the best source of preparation for the Solaris 10 Cert exam.
