  • 1. Interprocess communication??
    Hi, Does anyone know what the best way is for processes to communicate with each other on Solaris? I need to have one process retrieve a series of numbers from another process.
  • 2. LDAP Question
    Hello, I would like to have all my users' data centralized in LDAP and use Solaris 9 as LDAP clients. On the other hand I want some users to only be able to login to a subset of the systems. So for example I have system1, system2, system3 configured as LDAP clients, but only want to allow user1 account to be used on system1, but not on system2 and system3. What would be the best way to achieve this ? Thank you, Vlad Grama.
  • 3. Two JNI cards and two topology on the same system
    Hi, a little dubt, I have a sparc system with 2 JNI FC64-1063 equipped. One of these is connected to EMC storage and works correctly from a long time. Now I should setup the second one JNI and connect it to another kind of storage system, the IBM FastT-200. In our datacenter HBA topology supported by EMC'switch is SWITCHED FABRIC, while FastT's switch supports PRIVATE LOOP only. Now the issue is, can I connect both storage systems to my SUN 10000 domain, knowing that both FC cards are set with different topology (switched and private loop) ? I worried about this, because I think that "public-loop" variable become GLOBAL and in turn, it could be to cause a PANIC of my domain. Anyone can solve this dubt? Thanks in advance Christian

Solaris 10 06/06 x86/x64 - Boot Messages

Postby michael » Thu, 07 Sep 2006 04:46:11 GMT

Hello all,

I have a new Solaris 10 06/06 installation on an AMD Athlon 64
and I'm seeing some odd messages in syslog.

Can anyone out there tell me what these messages mean?

Aug 29 22:22:36 mm001 pcplusmp: [ID 658230] 
NOTICE: apic: local nmi: 0 1 1 1
Aug 29 22:22:36 mm001 pcplusmp: [ID 658230] 
NOTICE: apic: local nmi: 1 1 1 1

The system has four (4) PATA 320GB drives in it.  Each drive that is
configured reports the following message.  Any ideas as to what it means?

Aug 29 22:22:44 mm001 genunix: [ID 228648] 
ata_set_feature: (0x66,0x0) failed

And the biggie... 
I get 4 lines that report this...

Aug 29 22:23:04 mm001 genunix: [ID 386595 kern.notice] 
ata_id_common: BUSY status 0xfe error 0x0

It appears as though when the system is booting, whenever this 
message comes up, the whole system is{*filter*}.  Like it is waiting 
on something and then gets one of these messages.  It seems to 
affect any related disk activity... meaning, I/O seems to pause 
until these messages appear and then booting seems to continue.

Any ideas?

Thanks to all in advance!

1.Solaris 10 x86 06/06 Boot Problem

Hello everyone,

I am trying to install the Solaris x86 06/06 CDROM media
on an AMD Athlon XP 2100 system.  The installation goes 
fine and completes without any issues, but when the system
reboots, Solaris wont boot.

I get a Bad PBR error.  I can boot from the install CD and
get a maintenance shell and mount the partition and move 
around it, but nothing I do seems to get the system to boot.

I have tried it on two seperare hard drives and have even tried
to manually use installgrub to fix it... to no avail.

Its like the BIOS searches the drive to boot, doesnt find an
image and then wants to boot from CDROM.

I have tried manually fdisk'ing the drives and also allowing
the installation to set the fdisk automatically.

When looking at the partition table, format reports the following
type of layout:

Part      Tag    Flag     Cylinders         Size    
  0       root    wm       3 -    66      502.03MB 
  1        usr    wm      67 -   576        3.91GB
  2       swap    wu     577 -   707        1.00GB   
  3 unassigned    wm       0                0       
  4 unassigned    wm       0                0      
  5 unassigned    wm       0                0     
  6 unassigned    wm     708 -   710       23.53MB   
  7 unassigned    wm     711 - 30397      227.41GB  
  8       boot    wu       0 -     0        7.84MB 
  9 alternates    wu       1 -     2       15.69MB  

I know, I know... people dont like using slice2 for anything other
than "backup", but it isnt required and I have used it for other
things for almost 10 years now.

When I look at the MBR with BootIt-NG, I see the partition, but it 
doesnt show up as being bootable.  Not sure if this is real or just
that BootIt-NG doesnt understand Solaris partitioning.

I have installed several other machines without any issue so this one
has me at a loss... any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks to you all in advance,

2.Sun Studio 11 installed on Solaris 10 x86 (06/06)

I have successfully installed Sun Studio 11 in x86 platform.

When I run "sunstudio" from my home directory, it complains as not found.

I have already set the PATH and MANPATH environment variables in my home 
directory .profile. When I execute "set" or "env" commands from my home 
directory is does show the respective PATH and MANPATH entries as 
/opt/SUNWspro/bin  and /opt/SUNWspro/man.

Am I missing anything, which may inhibit running "sunstudio" from home 
I can execute fine if I specify the absolute path.

$ /opt/SUNWspro/bin/sunstudio
......Works Fine


3.Solaris 10 x86 06/06 on Dell GX520 (with Intel 945G graphic card)


I've performed an End User installation of Solaris 10 x86 06/06 on a
Dell GX520.
It all went fine, I got a graphical login but it only works with CDE,
not with Gnome (if I select Gnome, it all goes black and then returns
to the graphical login screen).

I thought it might be something to do with the built-in graphic card
(Intel 945G) so with kdmconfig I swapped between Xorg and Xsun, but to
no avail.

Any idea what I am doing wrong here?

Thanks in advance


4.Solaris 10 06/06 Companion DVD for Dummies?

Hi Folks:

    I've been stuck in the Windows world for several
years, but I love Solaris and I want to use it for
the server side of this project I'm working on.

    The old dog Pentium Apache and Firebird server
that's been running Sol 10 01/06 lost it's drive and
now I want to re-install Solaris 10.  I've burned the
06/06 Solaris and Companion DVD.

    Solaris installed without a problem, but the
companion no longer has that nice installer that
helps people like me by grouping the packages into
things like development tools and telling what each
package does.

    I can guess at some of the packages from their
names, but others are not obvious, for example,
where is GCC?  Is SFWddd the debugger?

    Is there a page on the net somewhere that will
describe what the packages on the 06/06 companion
DVD are?

to delete these?
