|Transitioning From Oracle Solaris 10 to Oracle Solaris 11 Oracle Solaris 11 Information Library|
Oracle Solaris 11 introduces several important changes to how user accounts are set up and managed, as well as changes to the default user environment.
Some of the key changes include the following:
Tools for creating and managing user accounts – The Solaris Management Console GUI and all of its related command-line tools, for example, smc and smuser, are no longer available. User accounts are managed solely by using command-line tools, such as the useradd, usermod, and userdel commands.
Default user shell and path – Oracle Solaris 11 provides more familiarity with Linux and Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD) operating systems. As a result, the default user shell and path have been changed, See Default Login Shell and PATH Environment Variable.
Where administration commands are located – Administration commands have moved from /sbin to /usr/sbin.
Where development tools are located – Development tools that were previously in /usr/ccs/bin have moved to /usr/bin.
