    Hi, I have created a 9 character User name in Solaris 2.6,it gave me a warning but created the user.When I try to login using that username after putting the password it says the user does not exists & shows only 8 characters of the username. Can someone tell me any work around. I am using ssh to login to the server.
  • 2. Determine Part# of components without opening the case
    Hi all; I am wondering if there is any way to tell the part numbers of the memory modules I have in a 280R running Solaris 2.8 without opening the case? We need to upgrade the memory, and I have 4 X 512GB DIMMS already installed. From Sun's online handbooks, I've determined that they are either part# 501-5031 (with a description of 512MB SDRAM DIMM), or 501-6174 (with a description of 512MB SDRAM DIMM CR1/LC1). I'd like to match them up if possible. Any way to tell for sure without eyeballing them? I've run through my limited repertoire of commands (prtdiag -v, prtconf, sysdef) but no luck, unless I'm missing a switch that will spell it out for me. Incedentally, can anyone explain the difference between the 'plain' DIMMs and the 'CR1/LC1' DIMMs? Can they mix and match and play together nicely? Any pointers appreciated.... JoeD.
  • 3. Installing C compiler on Solaris 7?
    Stupid question: how do I install a C compiler on Solaris 7? If I run 'cc', I get a 'language optional software package not installed'. 'man cc' tells me that cc is in package 'SPROcc', "whose default locoation is /opt/SUNWspro". So, I dig out the Solaris 7 CD, and follow the instructions in "adding and removing packages using Admintool", in the "Installation Library" doc. However, Admintool doesn't work with package names, and there's nothing that looks like a C compiler. There's some compiler support stuff, but it turns out that that's already installed. I then try to use 'pkgadd', guessing at the required CD drive name. However, after lots of poking around, I can't find anything that looks like SPROcc on the CD. There's lots of stuff in /cdrom/sol_7_sun_sparc_srvr/s0/Solaris_2.7/Product, but none of it looks like a C compiler. Am I being stupid? Surely the first thing that most users need is a C compiler. Cheers Paul PS. please don't suggest upgrading... :(

1.Netra X1, Corrupt text received via serial connection


I have just got hold of a Sun Netra X1 and would like to install
Solaris 9 (or 10) onto it.

The problem I have is that when I connect to the serial console I get
the LOM prompt alright, but after typing some commands like "help" I
get back scrambled text with some parts recognizable. I am using a
Cisco serial cable which has the same pinout as the sun original cable
(I have also made up a cable as per the Sun spec in the netra manual).

I have also tried connecting to the server via a Linux server, a Sun
Sparstation 5 and a windows laptop (using a variety of software
hyperterm, kermit, etc). All have the same issue.

I'd be very grateful for any opinions, ideas, etc.

Thanks in advance.


2.Netra X1 - Can't open boot device


I'm rebuilding a Netra X1 with Solaris 8 2/02.....

I can build it off the network, and the build goes successfully.
However, when I reboot, and the box tries to boot from disk, it gives
me the following:

Boot device: /pci@1f,0/ide@d/disk@0,0   FIle and args:
Evaluating: boot disk

Can't open boot device


and then it tries to boot from the network again. Any thoughts? The
hardware is good, I just can't seem to point it to a good boot device.
Please help.

- Thanks,

If you label it, does it remember drive type or auto configure

4.Install Solaris on a Netra X1 server

Hi everybody,

I've got virtually no experince with Sun hardware, I've done some 
reading of documents from Sun's website.  I've got a Netra X1 and I want 
to install Solaris on it.  Can anyone point a good document that will 
guide me in doing this?  Thanks.


5.Simplest way to plug disks on a Netra x1

I've solved my "blinking spanner LED" problem, now I have
a brand new 400-MHz Netra that I would like to use to
install Oracle. But I'll need space: I only have a 20-gig
disk, and would like to know what is the simplest manner
to add disk space to this machine (as I said I know *nothing*
about Sun/Solaris configuration, and I wonder if there's a
way to plug a disk to this netra as easily as you plug an
USB external disk box to a PC...).

On the back of this machine I have 4 RJ-45 entries (A LOM,
B SERIAL, NET 0 and NET 1) plus 2 USB ports.

What advice could you please give me ?

Once again thanks for you help,
