|Oracle Solaris Administration: Naming and Directory Services Oracle Solaris 11 Information Library|
Oracle Solaris Administration Guide: Naming and Directory Services (DNS, NIS and LDAP) describes the setup and administration of the Oracle Solaris operating system (OS) naming and directory services: DNS, NIS, and LDAP. This guide is part of a multivolume set that covers a significant part of the Oracle Solaris administration information.
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.
This guide is written for experienced system and network administrators.
Although this book introduces networking concepts relevant to Oracle Solaris naming and directory services, it explains neither the networking fundamentals nor the administration tools in the Oracle Solaris release.
This guide is divided into parts according to the respective naming services.
Here is a list of the topics that are covered by the System Administration Guides.
