  • 2. code build with Sun's compiler CC is crashing with the old code
    Hi All, I am looking to get some insight from you in a very weird problem that happens with our code. Here is the problem description: 1. We have several trees: CAL, TLS, NTLS. TLS is dependent on CAL and NTLS is dependent on CAL and TLS. Meaning that NTLS uses some libraries from both CAL and TLS. 2. We are building first CAL then TLS and last NTLS on the same box using the same compiler (Sun's CC compiler: Sun WorkShop 6 update 2 C++ 5.3) 3. All was OK until a few week back when NTLS application started to crash (at the same place) even if there was no change in NTLS code. However, TLS code was changed but the TLS application was running ok. Moreover the code that causes the crash is very old code that has been reliably working over the last 2 years. We could not figure out why this is happening. Any ideas? Thanks in advance for any help. Silvio
  • 3. Soft mount VS hard mount (NFS)
    Hi all, Does any body have any idea what are the advantages and drawbacks of using a soft mount as compared to hard mount ? I read some articles that say that soft mount may cause data incosistency. Can anyone give me an example of a case that would lead to data inconsistency ? Thanx for any help in advance ...
  • 4. sys-suspend with logging / fs
    I just tried sys-suspend on a Blade 100 with either Solaris 9 9/05 or Solaris 10 3/05 installed. With both OS versions, the resume boot fails with: cprboot: can't open /.CPR please reboot Program terminated I know that there were problems in the past (Solaris 7/8?) with resuming after sys-suspend when / is a logging filesystem, but I thought those had been fixed, esp. as logging is now default for all filesystems. Is this still a general problem (bugid 4491494 from Apr/2005 seems to suggest this), or is it a local problem ? mp. -- Systems Administrator | Institute of Scientific Computing | Univ. of Vienna

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

1.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,

2.Large IDE disks in a Netra X1

Is there a limit to how large the disks can be in a Netra X1 (possibly
with OBP updates)?  I'm wondering if I could install a couple of
100-200GB drives in it, so we can use it as a media/jumpstart server.



3.Bigger than 128GB disks in a netra X1

I know that netra X1s (and other machines with the same IDE chipset I
guess) can only handle 128GB disks. If I put somewhat bigger disks in
it, will it fail altogether, or only see the first 128GB?

Basically, I want to install the largest disks I can, but the ones I
can easily get locally are 160GB.  I can get 120s easily enough, but
I'm lazy so I thought I'd ask.

De antemano muchas gracias !


5.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.
