Solaris 10 New Features for (Experienced Solaris) Systems Administrators
Solaris Training Overview

This course provides participants with a look at the new / changed functionality found in the Solaris 10 Update 5 (05/08 release) Operating System (Solaris OS / Solaris OE). All prior new features are also incorporated into the course.

This course is taught for the following platforms: Solaris Sparc and Solaris x86/x64.

Solaris Training Prerequisites

It is assumed that the participant has previous experience on a Solaris 8 or 9 system, preferably in a systems administrator role. Familiarlty with both command line and CDE access to management tools is desirable, but is not mandatory. Some programming experience (shell,awk, PERL, C) is helpful, but not required.

Solaris Training Course duration

This course normally requires three (3) days, approximately 70% lecture and 30% lab time.

Solaris Training Course Objectives

On completion of this course, a systems adminstrator should be able to upgrade an existing Solaris system to version 10, or install a new version of Solaris 10; to understand and integrate the changes in the startup mechanisms; create and use zones where appropriate; use enhanced security features; use new file systems features and types; and view many other architectural and management features that are part of Solaris 10. The overall emphasis is to introduce the many new and changed features from a practical administrative point of view.

DTrace / kstat scripts will be shown / executed as relevant to each module / topic.
