07 Jul 2015 OpenSSH in Solaris 11.3 [44153]
By Darren Moffat

Darren reports, "Solaris 9 was the first release where we included an implementation of the IETF SSH client and server protocols, I led that project and at the time I was also the document editor for the IETF standards documents. We started with OpenSSH but for various reasons it ended up over time being a Solaris specific fork called SunSSH. We have regularly resynced for features and bug fixes with OpenSSH, but SunSSH remains a fork.

Starting with Solaris 11.3 we supply OpenSSH in addition to SunSSH. The intent is that in some future release SunSSH will be removed leaving only OpenSSH..."

30 Nov 2014 Oracle Solaris 11 - Beginners Guide [39497]
From UnixArena

Lingeswaran writes, "If you are working as a Sun Solaris system administrator, you know that how rapidly Solaris operating system is changing from version to version. There were a lot difference between Solaris 9 and Solaris 10. But people were able to grab the changes quickly in the past when it was transformed from Solaris 8/9 to Solaris 10. ZFS and Zones were not utilized potentially on Solaris 10 and this could be the reason why the system administrators couldn't find any difficulties. But now most of the people are asking that how and where to start for oracle Solaris 11..."

By Gerry Haskins

Gerry Haskins writes, "Solaris 9 is exiting Extended Support and entering Sustaining Support.

In accordance with the Oracle Lifetime Support Policy for Software and Operating Systems, (Page 37), and (Pages 6 and 9), all patches created during the Extended Support period will revert to "Operating System" access entitlement on MOS so they are available to all customers will a valid support contract, not just those that purchased Extended Support.

UNIX Arena by Lingeswaran R

07 Jun 2011 How to Use Automated Installation Instead of Flash Archive on Solaris 11 [24241]
New Multi-purpose Feature Enables both Install and Recovery Procedures

As more of the features of Oracle Solaris 11 Express come into use, the literature on best practices grows accordingly. One recent addition is "How to use Automated Installation instead of Flash Archive on Solaris," a blog post by Philip Torchinsky. Rather than using the option that Solaris 9 and 10 provided called "flash installation," -- essentially a disaster recovery feature with other uses -- the blog recommends installing Solaris on one server, called "master machine," making an archive containing all files installed on the master machine (so called "flash archive"), and then cloning it using flash installation option to other servers, called cloned machines. Like flash installation, Torchinsky writes, flash archive can be used for disaster recovery, as Solaris sysadmins generally know. It is possible to make a flash archive from an existing server's installation and use it to install the server with the same configuration in case of fatal disaster requiring complete system reinstall. The blog provides the code samples necessary for the described process.
