|Oracle Solaris Administration: IP Services Oracle Solaris 10 1/13 Information Library|
Welcome to Oracle Solaris Administration: IP Services. This book is part of a fourteen-volume set that covers a significant part of Oracle Solaris system administration. This book assumes that you have already installed the Oracle Solaris OS. 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.
In this document, these x86 related terms mean the following:
x86 refers to the larger family of 64-bit and 32-bit x86 compatible products.
x64 relates specifically to 64-bit x86 compatible CPUs.
"32-bit x86" points out specific 32-bit information about x86 based systems.
For supported systems, see the Oracle Solaris OS: Hardware Compatibility Lists.
This book is intended for anyone responsible for administering systems that run Oracle Solaris, which are configured in a network. To use this book, you should have at least two years of UNIX system administration experience. Attending UNIX system administration training courses might be helpful.
Here is a list of the topics that are covered by the System Administration Guides.
