  • 1. sun-win-network backups
    Hi We are running a mixed solaris/win2k environment. We have been running solstice net backup 6.1 on a solaris 8 server to backup all the solaris clients. I have been asked about the possibility of adding windows client machines, if anyone is running this - could they let me know how well it works in terms of recovery etc. Thanks
  • 2. Truss question
    I'm running netperf doing some network testing. We have some systems that are running a lot slower than the rest... Basically i've narrowed it down to transmits... receives are fine... I comfirmed this by doing a truss on netperf. Sure enough the send() is taking 3 times longer on some systems... Unfortunately truss just shows: 6741: 0.0012 send(4, "\0\0\0\0 1 6 3 .\0\0\0\0".., 131072, 0) = 131072 6741: 0.0011 send(4, "\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0".., 131072, 0) = 131072 6741: 0.0012 send(4, "\0\0\0\0 1 6 3 .\0\0\0\0".., 131072, 0) = 131072 6741: 0.0012 send(4, "\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0".., 131072, 0) = 131072 6741: 0.0012 send(4, "\0\0\0\0 1 6 3 .\0\0\0\0".., 131072, 0) = 131072 this is from a truss using the -D and -f flags... Is there anyway I can see more "detail" to figure out why the send is so slow? thanks! john
  • 3. Sun Fire V210 and A1000 Storage Array
    Do you know if an A1000 should be able to run off of the built in scsi interface on the V210? Or would I need to buy another interface card? The A1000 data sheet says UltraScsi - Differential The V210 data sheet says Ultra160 Scsi multimode (SE/LVD) Are they compatible? I currently have the two of them hooked together and probe-scsi-all shows only the internal drives. [not a good sign {tm}] Linolil
  • 4. fssnap error on Solaris 9
    Hi, I was trying to backup / using ufsdsump of fssnapped image on Solaris 9 (kernel level Generic_112233-11) but fssnap didn't want to create snapshot of /. It reported the following error message: # fssnap -F ufs -o raw,bs=/global/u3/storage / snapshot error: File system could not be write locked and fssnap -i doesn't list it. Is there any patch for the above or is there some condition I didn't meet? What shall I do? Bye, Dragan -- Dragan Cvetkovic, To be or not to be is true. G. Boole No it isn't. L. E. J. Brouwer !!!

solaris 9 12/3: reading on-disk sun-doc (sun-netscape): font WAY too small

Netscape: PRINT IS TOO SMALL TO READ! (solaris-9 12/3 answerbook2)

Here's the netscape being used:

146 ==/dkcjunk==> ls -lsd /usr/dt/appconfig/SUNWns/netscape-bin

 880 -rwxr-xr-x   1 root     sys       442332 Sep 23  2002 /usr/dt/appconfig/SUNWns/netscape-bin

For instance, this doc:

   file:/var/opt/sun_docs/sundocs.html

Netscape must be showing it in 5-point -- or smaller.

Any suggestions?


(Any other gui-based browsers (I already use lynx, non-gui),
  especially any that, like lynx, provide::

  .  bookmarks kept in ascii-files (ie, editable by me with vi, ...)

  .  most browsing done via fingers on keyboard (like lynx),
          so don't have to keep moving mouse for everything.

).

Thanks,

David

Annoying as hell, isn't it?  The easiest (but probably least
satisfying) way around this is to set the minimum font size.

Drop this into your ~/.Xdefaults

Netscape*documentFonts.xResolution*iso-8859-1:  100
Netscape*documentFonts.yResolution*iso-8859-1:  100

Then reload the xdefaults dabase with xrdb -load ~/.Xdefaults and
restart nutscrape.

Barbie - Prayers are like junkmail for Jesus

I have seen things you lusers would not believe.
I've seen Sun monitors on fire off the side of the multimedia lab.
I've seen NTU lights glitter in the dark near the Mail Gate.
All these things will be lost in time, like the root partition last
week. Time to die.

In article < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,





Thanks so much; will do.

But it leads to another question:

   What are some *more* satisfying ways around it?

(this from someone who knows nothing about gui-browsers;
  my main browser is lynx, used from this panix shell-acct --
  and netcome (long defunct) before that.)

Thanks again!

David

Well, I'll try that one, too.

Please, what should I read in order to learn about
this X11-stuff?

(I have a bunch of O'Reilly books on X from about
maybe 15 years ago -- never read them, though (what
I do is *buy* books, not *read* them.  Less buying
these days, money being quite a bit, uh, tighter.))

What about the sun doc -- any good, tutorial, etc?

How about downloadable tutorial-doc?  Is there
a central X-site?  (Must be, of course.  Google ...)

Thanks to you both!

David

What in the world did Sun do this time (the 12 3 version) to
screw it up, and *why*?  Any idea?

(Don't they *test* this stuff before releasing it?)

This lot might help as well

Netscape*XmLGrid*fontList:
	-*-helvetica-medium-r-*-*-*-140-*-*-*-*-iso8859-*,
         -*-helvetica-bold-r-*-*-*-140-*-*-*-*-iso8859-*=BOLD,
         -*-helvetica-medium-o-*-*-*-140-*-*-*-*-iso8859-*=ITALIC 


All on one line (I've split them above for clarity). This increases the 
font size for lists of, say, email messages and news articles.

Again, reload the xdefaults database and then restart Netscape after 
putting that lot in.

2.Sun Studio 12 on very old Sun kit

Anyone know what's the oldest version of Solaris that Sun Studio 12
will run on? (not necessarily 'supported' on)

We've got an old Forte/TOOL application that we'd like to re-compile
on SunOS 2.6. We used to use (I think) Sun Workshop 5 but our licence
server has died and I don't know how to get a replacement.
I'm pretty sure that the version of Forte (3m02) wont install or run
on Solaris 9 or later.

I tried installing Studio 12 using the 'untar' method, on SunOS 2.6,
but when I try to run 'cc' I get
ld.so.1: cc: fatal: libpicl.so.1: open failed: No such file or
directory
which looks pretty terminal.

Reading the differences between Workshop 5 and Studio 12 I was hoping
they wouldn't be 'that' different - as far as the command line
compiler was concerned. But I guess I was being too optimistic!

TIA

4.ISO: Help solving sun solaris gnome problem with fonts

A user contacted me about a rather peculiar problem. He is using sparc
solaris 8, with sun's gnome.  When he starts up dtmail (and a few other
apps), the font used is larger than the fonts being used by xterm, etc.

He cannot find anything in his environment that would set the fonts for
dtmail, eclipse, etc. but leave his xterms, etc. alone.

In fact, eclipse is really strange - one of its windows uses the font
he wishes to use (and that show up in xterm), while the rest of the
eclipse windows use the same font as dtmail.

So, I googled this newsgroup's archives, and found lots of people
asking, but few if any real answers to the question "how does one go
about changing the font being used by dtmail".

Has anyone out there ever solved this problem?
