Solaris 10 What's New

x86: New prtconf Option to Display Product Names

This enhancement is new in the Solaris Express 7/05 release and in the Solaris 10 1/06 release.

A new -b option has been added to the prtconf command. This option displays the product name of a system. This option is similar to the uname -i command. However, the prtconf -b command is specifically designed to determine the marketing name of a product.

The -b option displays the following root properties from the firmware device tree:

To display additional platform-specific output that might be available, add the -v option to the prtconf -b command.

For more information, see the prtconf(1M) man page and the System Administration Guide: Advanced Administration.
