Solaris Transition Guide

Files to Merge

To make data from any of the following files available, merge the changes into the Solaris 7 version of the same file. Note, however, that not all of these files were modified on the SunOS release 4 system. Identify files that were changed on the SunOS release 4 system and merge these only. As you read the list, note that some of the file names are slightly different. For example, /etc/auto.* files are now /etc/auto_*.

The following is an example list of the SunOS release 4 files backed up using the instructions in the first part of this chapter. These files are candidates for merging into the Solaris 7 operating environment. See Appendix D, System Files Reference Table, to examine SunOS release 4 files for changes.
