Incorrect version of the What's New in the Solaris 8 Operating Environment on the Kiosk on the Solaris 8 Installation CD
Commands in "Full Backup Commands" in Solaris 8 (SPARC Platform Edition) Installation Guide are incorrect.
The commands in Table 3-3 in "Full Backup Commands" in the Solaris 8 (SPARC Platform Edition) Installation Guide are incorrect. They should read as follows:Table 5-1 Backup Commands
To make a full backup on a
Use this command
Local cartridge tape drive
ufsdump 9ucf /dev/rmt files_to_backup
Remote cartridge tape drive
ufsdump 0ucf remote_host:/ files_to_backup
The version of the What's New in the Solaris 8 Operating Environment available through the kiosk on the Solaris 8 Installation CD has been superseded. For the latest version of What's New in the Solaris 8 Operating Environment, refer to the Solaris 8 Documentation CD or to http://docs.sun.com.
The 4-bit Priority field description reflects RFC 1883, which has been obsoleted by RFC 2460 (Solaris 8 implements RFC 2460). Consequently, the Priority field has been replaced by an 8-bit Traffic Class field. The IPv6 Header Format figure should identify the Traffic Class field in place of the Priority field. The Priority bullet on this page should also be replaced by the following Traffic Class description:
This new value also reduces the number of bits allocated to the "Flow Label" field to 20 bits.
The 4-bit Priority field description reflects RFC 1883, which has been obsoleted by RFC 2460 (Solaris 8 implements RFC 2460). Consequently, the Priority field has been replaced by the 8-bit Traffic Class field. The Priority section should be replaced by the following Traffic Classes section.
Originating nodes and forwarding routers can use the 8-bit Traffic Class field in the IPv6 header to identify and distinguish between different classes or priorities of IPv6 packets.
The service interface to the IPv6 service within a node must provide a means for an upper-layer protocol to supply the value of the Traffic Class bits in packets originated by that upper-layer protocol. The default value must be zero for all 8 bits.
Nodes that support a specific use of some or all of the Traffic Class bits can change the value of those bits in packets that they originate, forward, or receive, as required for that specific use. Nodes should ignore and leave unchanged any bits of the Traffic Class field for which they do not support a specific use.
Step 10c in this procedure incorrectly omits the addition of the up parameter required in the line added to the /etc/hostname.ip.tun0 file. Consequently, the up parameter must be added at the end of the line entry in this step.
Several corrections apply to this section:
Change the symbol name to: nfs_allow_preepoch_time.
Change the description to: This symbol controls whether the NFS client or server allows file time stamps that precede 1970.
No change to the default description.
Delete the nfs_acl_cache symbol entry.
Description: Some servers do not properly update the attributes of the directory when changes are made. To allow interoperability with these broken servers, set this variable to disable the readdir cache.
Default: Sset to off(0).
Change the default to 1. Ignore the comment about the directory name caching.
Change the default description to: set to ncsize. By setting the variable to 1 you are effectively disabling the cache, not because there is an explicit check to see whether or not it is 1, but because you are creating a very small cache.
Change the description: This symbol controls how often NFS ENOSPC and EDQUOT write error messages are logged. Its units are in seconds.
No change to the default description.
Delete the nfsreadmap symbol entry.
Change the default description: Defaults to 1024.
Delete the authkerb_cachesz symbol entry.
Delete the authkerb_win symbol entry.
