What You Need to Know

Before you administer Sun Java System Portal Server, you must be familiar with the following concepts:

How This Book is Organized

This book contains the following chapters and appendices:

Document Conventions Used in This Guide

Monospaced Font

Monospaced font is used for any text that appears on the computer screen or text that you should type. It is also used for file names, distinguished names, functions, and examples.

Bold Monospaced Font

Bold monospaced font is used to represent text within a code example that you should type. For example, you might see something like this:


Sun(TM) Java System Portal Server (6.3 release)


Installation log at /var/sadm/install/logs/pssetup.13343/install.log

This product will run without a license. However, you must either purchase a Binary Code License from, or accept the terms of a Binary Software Evaluation license with, Sun Microsystems, to legally use this product.

Do you accept? yes/[no] Starting install wizard in graphical mode

In this example, ./setup is what you would type from the command line and the rest is what would appear as a result.

Italicized Font

Italicized font is used to represent text that you enter using information that is unique to your installation (for example, variables). It is used for server paths and names and account IDs.

Square or Straight Brackets

Square (or straight) brackets [] are used to enclose optional parameters. For example, in this document you will see the usage for the dpadmin command described as follows:

dpadmin [subcommands][options][arguments]

The presence of [subcommands],[options], and [arguments] indicates that there are optional parameters that may be added to the dpadmin command.

Command-Line Prompts

Command-line prompts (for example, % for a C-Shell, or $ for a Korn or Bourne shell) are not displayed in the examples. Depending on which operating system environment you are using, you will see a variety of different command-line prompts. However, you should enter the command as it appears in the document unless specifically noted otherwise.

Common User Interface Verbs

Double click instructs the user to click the mouse button twice in quick sucession.

Right click instructs the user to click the right mouse button when the pointer is on top of a UI element.

Select instructs the user to specify a choice among UI options (by highlighting, placing a checkmark in a checkbox, or clicking a radio button) in preparation for clicking OK or otherwise choosing to put your selections in action.
