Welcome to Oracle Solaris Administration: IP Services for Oracle Solaris. This book is part of a fourteen-volume set that covers a significant part of the Oracle Solaris system administration information. This book assumes that you have already installed Oracle Solaris. You should be ready to configure your network or ready to configure any networking software that is required on your network.

Note - This Oracle Solaris release supports systems that use the SPARC and x86 families of processor architectures. The supported systems appear in the Oracle Solaris OS: Hardware Compatibility Lists. This document cites any implementation differences between the platform types.

How the System Administration Guides Are Organized

Here is a list of the topics that are covered by the System Administration Guides.

Book Title
Booting and shutting down a system, managing boot services, modifying boot behavior, booting from ZFS, managing the boot archive, and troubleshooting booting on SPARC platforms
Booting and Shutting Down Oracle Solaris on x86 Platforms
Booting and shutting down a system, managing boot services, modifying boot behavior, booting from ZFS, managing the boot archive, and troubleshooting booting on x86 platforms
Using Oracle Solaris commands, booting and shutting down a system, managing user accounts and groups, managing services, hardware faults, system information, system resources, and system performance, managing software, printing, the console and terminals, and troubleshooting system and software problems
Removable media, disks and devices, file systems, and backing up and restoring data
TCP/IP network administration, IPv4 and IPv6 address administration, DHCP, IPsec, IKE, IP Filter, and IPQoS
DNS, NIS, and LDAP naming and directory services, including transitioning from NIS to LDAP
Automatic and manual IP interface configuration including WiFi wireless; administration of bridges, VLANs, aggregations, LLDP, and IPMP; virtual NICs and resource management.
Web cache servers, time-related services, network file systems (NFS and autofs), mail, SLP, and PPP
Resource management features, which enable you to control how applications use available system resources; Oracle Solaris Zones software partitioning technology, which virtualizes operating system services to create an isolated environment for running applications; and Oracle Solaris 10 Zones, which host Oracle Solaris 10 environments running on the Oracle Solaris 11 kernel
Auditing, device management, file security, BART, Kerberos services, PAM, Cryptographic Framework, Key Management, privileges, RBAC, SASL, Secure Shell, and virus scanning
SMB service, which enables you to configure an Oracle Solaris system to make SMB shares available to SMB clients; SMB client, which enables you to access SMB shares; and native identity mapping services, which enables you to map user and group identities between Oracle Solaris systems and Windows systems
ZFS storage pool and file system creation and management, snapshots, clones, backups, using access control lists (ACLs) to protect ZFS files, using ZFS on a Solaris system with zones installed, emulated volumes, and troubleshooting and data recovery
System installation, configuration, and administration that is specific to Trusted Extensions
Securing an Oracle Solaris system, as well as usage scenarios for its security features, such as zones, ZFS, and Trusted Extensions
Provides system administration information and examples for transitioning from Oracle Solaris 10 to Oracle Solaris 11 in the areas of installation, device, disk, and file system management, software management, networking, system management, security, virtualization, desktop features, user account management, and user environments
