Before you Download Solaris 11 Find Out Which Devices Are Supported [24924]
A How-to Using the Hardware Compatibility List

Before a user installs Oracle Solaris 11, it would be helpful to know which devices the solution supports. In a recent blog post, Rick Ramsey explains how this can be determined. Consulting the x86 Device List (part of the Oracle Solaris Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) will reveal that information, Ramsey writes, listing the steps to access the table that will list all the devices of that type that are supported by Solaris 11, including PCI ID and vendor.

Taking Your First Steps with Oracle Solaris 11 [24895]
An Installation Guide Using 'Live Media'

Since Oracle Solaris 11 is distributed with several different installation options, Brian Leonard and Glynn Foster have created a procedure to guide users through the interactive graphical installer, officially known as "Live Media." With the graphical installer, Oracle Solaris 11 can be booted into RAM, causing zero impact on an existing operating system, the authors explain. After it is loaded, users are free to experiment with Oracle Solaris to determine whether it is something they would like to install on their systems. The blog post contains the necessary code samples and illustrative screen shots to render a complex process manageable.

Building a Solaris 11 Repository Without Network Connection [24896]
Utilizing the Potential of the New IPS: A How-to

In blogger Jim Laurent's view one of the great new features of Oracle Solaris 11 is the repository-based Image Packaging system (IPS), which not only introduces new cloud based package installation services, but is also integrated with the zones, boot environment and ZFS file systems to provide a safe, easy and fast way to perform system updates. Laurent explains that users without network access can now employ the IPS and locally stored repository to create a Solaris 11 system. He provides a "quick and dirty" procedure to create the repository and an explanation of how each command functions.

Solaris 11 OS: What's Under the Hood [24855]
Come to the Launch Party on November 9, 2011

In an eloquent post, Constantin Gonzalez both introduces the new and compelling features of Solaris 11 and issues an invitation to the launch on November 9. Those new features that Gonzalez writes about include a new package manager, boot environments, and an automated installer. The migration issues of the past can, with Solaris 11, remain in the past, as one can now use Solaris 10 Containers to import Solaris 10 installations into Solaris 11 as a branded zone: the essence of management simplicity. And, with Project Crossbow, Gonzalez continues, Solaris 11 allows users to enjoy limitless network virtualization.

Making the Life of a Sys Admin Easier

In a recent episode of the Oracle in a Class by Itself podcast the panel discusses datacenter management using the new functionality in Solaris 11 and Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center, explaining how Oracle's integrated approach to design creates a means whereby sys admins can more readily manage a datacenter from a single point in the system. Solaris 11, the panel explains, has been designed as a virtualization-aware solution. The panel also reminds listeners of the November 9, 2011 launch of Solaris 11 and directs them to Oracle.com/events for further information.
