Top Tips for Updating Solaris 11 Systems [32912]
By Gerry Haskins

Gerry Haskins writes, "We now have quite a bit of experience of IPS and Repositories under our belt.

Feedback from customers has been extremely positive. I recently met a customer with 1000+ Solaris servers who told me that with Solaris 10 it took them 2 months to roll out a new patchset across their enterprise. With Solaris 11, it takes 10 days.

That really helps lower TCO.

As with anything, experience teaches us how to optimize things. Here's a few Top Tips around IPS / Repo management which I'd like to share with you from my experience with SuperCluster:..."

Administering Solaris Zones [32741]
An excerpt from Chapter 17 of Oracle Solaris 11 System Administration Exam Guide

This is an excerpt from Chapter 17, "Administering Solaris Zones," of Oracle Solaris 11 System Administration Exam Guide by Michael Ernest (McGraw-Hill Professional; 2013) with permission from McGraw-Hill. Download a PDF of the full chapter. Also, read a Q&A with the author.

"You are about to learn how to create and configure a Solaris Zone, observe it in its various states of being, and manage it as it runs on your system. For those of you who need to get on with learning about other virtualization techniques available on Solaris and other operating systems, learning how zones work will give you a solid conceptual foundation for those subjects.

You've been learning about zones already -- or at least the key parts that make up one. For example, you've learned to configure projects, an abstraction for treating a group of processes as a workload. You've learned how to set limits with process, task, and project resource controls, and you've learned about global resource controls such as memory caps, process scheduling, and CPU provisioning. You can create a new ZFS file system with its own property controls for any occasion you deem fit. And you know that you can now create virtual NICs whenever you need a new logical network resource..."

Less known Solaris 11.1 features: pfedit [32356]
per-file authorized edit of administrative files

Joerg Moellenkamp writes, "It's a really nifty feature: Let's assume, you have a config file in your system and you want to allow your junior fellow admin to edit it from time to time, but don't want him to pass any further rights to him, because this machine is too important.

Solaris 11.1 has an interesting feature to delegate the privilege to edit just a file. The tool enabling this is called pfedit..."
