System Administration Guide: Network Services is part of a multivolume set that covers a significant part of the Oracle Solaris system administration information. This book assumes that you have already installed the Oracle Solaris operating system, and you have set up any networking software that you plan to use. The operating system is part of the Oracle Solaris product family, which also includes many features.
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.
For supported systems, see the Oracle Solaris OS: Hardware Compatibility Lists.
This book is intended for anyone responsible for administering one or more systems that run the Oracle Solaris release. To use this book, you should have one to two years of UNIX system administration experience. Attending UNIX system administration training courses might be helpful.
