9780133007107: Oracle® Solaris 11 System Administration

Oracle® Solaris 11 System Administration covers every skill required to effectively install and administer the Oracle® Solaris 11.1 operating system in production environments. It features dozens of step-bystep “learn by example” procedures, demonstrating how to apply complex solutions in real-world data center environments.

 

Author Bill Calkins has administered and taught Oracle Solaris and its predecessors for more than twenty years. He also helped develop the newest Oracle Certified Associate (OCA) and Oracle Certified Professional (OCP) exams, which raise the bar for Solaris certification. This guide covers every new 1Z0-821 exam topic in detail and also covers many 1Z0-822 exam topics.

 

Calkins also reviews the changes that system administrators will face when upgrading to Solaris 11.1 and presents new ways to perform familiar tasks on both SPARC and x86 hardware. You’ll learn how to

  • Install the Solaris 11 Operating Environment with Live Media or Text Interactive installers
  • Install, manage, and update software with the Image Packaging System and IPS repositories
  • Understand, customize, and troubleshoot SPARC and x86 boot processes from system power-up to loading the OS (including coverage of ILOM, OpenBoot, and GRUB 2)
  • Administer and create services through the service management facility (SMF)
  • Configure system messaging using SMF notifications, syslog and rsyslog
  • Configure and administer ZFS storage pools, including ZFS on the boot drive, local disks, LUNs, and a SAN
  • Configure and manage ZFS file systems: encryption, redundancy, snapshots, clones, network sharing, monitoring, device replacement, and legacy UFS migration
  • Create, migrate, contain, and administer zones, including solaris10 branded and immutable zones
  • Use RBAC to create custom rights profiles and grant special privileges
  • Manage and monitor system process scheduler (including FSS process schedulers and proc tools)
  • Configure Solaris networking and network services, including Reactive and Fixed Network Configurations, VNICs, and Virtual Networking

 

A companion website (unixed.com/solaris11book.html) includes new 1Z0-821 and 1Z0-822 study strategies and self-assessment exams.

From the Author:

This book covers all of the topics necessary to effectively install and administer an Oracle Solaris 11 system. When used as a study guide, this book will save you a great deal of time and effort searching for information you will need to administer Oracle Solaris 11 on SPARC and x86-based systems. This book covers each topic in enough detail for inexperienced administrators to learn about Oracle Solaris 11 and apply the knowledge to real-life scenarios. Experienced readers will find the material complete and concise, making it a valuable reference for everyday tasks. Drawing from my years of experience as a senior Oracle Solaris administrator and consultant, you'll find new ideas and see some different approaches to system administration that probably were not covered in your Oracle Solaris administration training courses.
You might be familiar with my Oracle Solaris certification training guides and exam prep books that have been published over the past 15 years. I am a Solaris Subject Matter Expert for Oracle. I participate in the development of the Oracle Solaris 11 certification exams, and I have made certain that the topics covered on the exam are covered in this book. But, rather than stopping at simply an exam prep book, I have gone to great effort to ensure that all tasks that you need to perform are covered beyond what is simply required to pass the exam.
Experienced administrators will find many welcome enhancements in Oracle Solaris 11, but they will also find Oracle Solaris 11 is vastly different from previous versions of the operating system. Oracle has added new features and, in some cases, has completely redesigned some of the functions you may have used on a daily basis. To eliminate the frustration of learning a new environment, I describe new solutions for performing familiar tasks.
Welcome to the Oracle Solaris 11 community, and don't forget to visit my blog at unixed.com/blog where I answer your questions and discuss various topics related to Oracle Solaris administration.
