15 Jun 2013 Monitoring per Zone Filesystem activity [31401]

Solaris 11 added a new at fsstat(1M) monitoring command that provided the ability to view filesystem activity at the VFS layer (ie filesystem independent). This command was available in Solaris 11 Express and the OpenSolaris releases as well.

16 Mar 2012 Create Solaris 10 Branded Zones on Exalogic [25683]
How-to Enables Running Multiple Versions of Solaris OS Simultaneously

Because users often find it desirable to run more than one version of Solaris, and, further, because Solaris 11 Express enables the creation of branded zones on Exalogic inside which one might run different versions of Solaris simultaneously, the how-to Leo Yuen has written for creating a Solaris 10 branded zone on Exalogic should have wide appeal.

Laurent notes that an issue raised in his review a year ago has now -- with the release of Solaris 11 -- been fixed. That was the inability to mount /var as a separate file system as the scripts require. The default installation now automatically sets of /var as a separate ZFS data set, Laurent writes.

01 Dec 2011 Dual Boot Oracle Solaris 11/11 and Linux [25005]
A -Start-to-finish Procedure for Users Requiring Dual OSes

"Please back up your data carefully before trying any of this" is the prudent caution blogger Hartmut Streppel offers in his post "Dual Boot Oracle Solaris 11/11 and Linux (Ubuntu 11.10/grub2)." Beginning with the uninstall of Oracle Solaris 11 Express and an Open SuSE installation and then consulting the web, Streppel found instructions on the dual boot of Linux and Windows. He also found that Ubuntu needs an active partition and that grub2 uses a different numbering scheme for the partitions. Finally, using the grub CLI and a tool from, Streppel confirmed the correctness of his basic setup.
