Hi Managers,

sorry for the long delay of this summary. We tried
different options and ended up with the solution
presented here.

First thanks to Joe Moore and Darren Dunham for their
valuable tips on the Tbyte limit on Solaris below
Solaris 9 8/03.

The problem of not being able to add a quarum device for
Sun Cluster 3.0 is directly related to how Sun deal with
disk bigger than 1 Tbyte: They have introduced
an Extensible Firmware Intaerface (EFI) to label disk
begger than 1 TB. Compare to VTOC scheme
of labeling disk, the difference is slice 2 is regarded
as a NORMAL slice. It DOES NOT represent the whole disk.

On the other hand, SunCluster 3.0 insists to look for a
VTOC style of slice two to determine if the disk device
can be used as a quorum device.

We did not get a definite anwser if SC 3.1 support EFI
from SUN. At last we decided to make smaller RAID sets
to satisfy SC 3.0.

Note with disk size smaller than 1 TB Solaris uses VTOC
automatically.

About multiterabytes support, Solaris 9 earlier than
release 8/03 supports multiterabytes disk and filessystem
as long as the system is patched with MU4.

Thanks to Stella Kong for the below reply:-

I used option 2 and it worked fine.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi Brett:

As a document Sun had provided (ID70401) there is 2 solutions:

1. Create script in /etc/rc2.d to force it to set it to 100fdx everytime
system when system reboot.

Create script /etc/rc2.d/S68net_tune

#!/sbin/sh
# /etc/rc2.d/S68net-tune
PATH=/usr/bin:/usr/sbin
echo "Implementing Solaris ndd Tuning Changes "
# bge-Interfaces
# Force bge0 to 100fdx autoneg off
ndd -set /dev/bge0 adv_1000fdx_cap 0
ndd -set /dev/bge0 adv_1000hdx_cap 0
ndd -set /dev/bge0 adv_100fdx_cap 1
ndd -set /dev/bge0 adv_100hdx_cap 0
ndd -set /dev/bge0 adv_10fdx_cap 0
ndd -set /dev/bge0 adv_10hdx_cap 0
ndd -set /dev/bge0 adv_autoneg_cap 0

Make the script executable:
# chmod 755 /etc/rc2.d/S68net_tune

After the script is run, you will see that the nic is set to 100fdx
autoneg
off.

2. 

BGE.CONF
To force bge interface to 100mbps full duplex, put the following entries
in
/platform/sun4u/kernel/drv/bge.conf
A reboot is required for this method.

adv_1000fdx_cap=0;
adv_1000hdx_cap=0;
adv_100fdx_cap=1;
adv_100hdx_cap=0;
adv_10fdx_cap=0;
adv_10hdx_cap=0;
adv_autoneg_cap=0;

NOTE: Using bge.conf will force all instances of bge to the speed/duplex
specified in the file. Use ndd to force individual instances if for
example
bge0 needs to be 10hdx and bge1 needs to be 100fdx.

Regards,
Stella

Hi;

Quick Summary - thanks to Jay Lessert for pointing in the correct direction
108528-26 breaks the /etc/pam.conf config. I'd seen this before but didn't
associate the two issues as being the same.

Thanks to all that responded.

 Thanks to:

 The suggestions were:
 - check /etc/pam.conf (unchanged from the default install)
 - make sure there is one, and only one, entry for the user in both
   passwd and shadow
 - make sure that passwd and shadow are consistent with each other
   (see pwconv(1m))
 - try the nispasswd command (which is actually for nis+ :)
 - try 'passwd -r files'
 - make sure yppasswdd is running

 Turns out yppasswdd was not running. Thanks to Ed Rolison for the
 suggestion.

Couple of months back I asked the question and received no useful responses, 
only a couple of people rather "helpfully" pointing out that Sun don't make 
laptops - yes, yes, but they manufacture the components that third parties 
build Sparc-based laptops from. Anyhow, I stumbled on a company called Magma 
(http://www.magma.com/), who make a number of clever things including one 
blindingly brilliant box that fits the PC-bus slot and provides a number of 
PCI slots at the other end. It's terrific - we've got one running a 
dual-head at the moment, provided by a Raptor card inside. About to try a 
specialist data capture card and a hardware raid card. Works with Solaris - 
also Windows and Mac if that's your thang. I hope this is useful to others.

I found the problem...I was using the web interface to manage the 
exports and (for the working system) someone had apparently modified 
exportfs and added the backend interface but it didn't show up in the 
gui and I overlooked it everytime (until today)...you'd think I'd learn 
by now to never trust a gui.  Added that interface for the other 
machines and all is once again happy.

Thanks for eveyone's input...

After you un-tar the files, run

It is interactive, it will stop NBU daemons, before copying files. Restart
NBU daemons, after upgrade is finished.

I was pointed to the man page for SUNWzulu_config which is

Very helpful.

An example for /usr/dt/config/Xservers which works for two

:0 Local local_uid at console root /usr/openwin/bin/Xsun -dev 
            /dev/fbs/zulu0a -dev /dev/fbs/zulu1a

We were hoping to be able to use our two 4000 boards to provide
four independent displays at four terminals. The 4000 boards are
flexible enough to do this, but the problem now is how to make
them interactive, eg. provide each with a keyboard/mouse? Our
Sun engineer is looking into whether this is possible, has anyone
configured their V880 this way?

I didn't receive any replies to this, but sun support came through
with this:

from the level-2 (EPROM) prompt, 

	=> set passwd <new password>
	=> set flags 0x40000000
	=> boot

once the array has booted, login (with the new password) and change
it again with the passwd command.

According to the T3 service manual:

"In the auto cache mode, if the disk tray has full redundancy available,
then the caching mode is write-behind. If any component is nonredundant,
then the cache mode is set to write-through. Read caching is always
performed. This mode provides the best performance while retaining full

Subject: Summary: sun rack 900 power
Message-ID: <OF3999E69F.1C0F8119-ON85256DF0.003EF9AE@gdeb.com>

Hello All,

I received 3 responses to the question, original shown below, for a
recommendation on powering a sun rack 900 without the power distribution
system (PDS) that sun provides.  We don't want to install a 220V line.  We
want to stay with the standard plug and wall receptacles, since the rack is
not going to be heavily populated.

Responses:

1. One Recommendation against buying a sun rack 900. The PDS is difficult
to install and the rack is not a sturdy as some of the older sun racks.

2. One recommendation to use a PDS that uses a 220V line.

3. One "Good luck".

Thanks everyone!

After we buy, setup and populate a rack, I'll re-post the summary.

-----Original Message-----

Hello All,

We are looking at buying a Sun Rack 900 without the 2,000.00 power
distribution system (PDS).  Has anyone found any products ( surge
suppressors, power strips ) that work/fit well with this rack.  Does the
solution require any additional mounting hardware?

We do not want to consider any solutions that require the use of a
receptacle other than the standard wall receptacle ( NEMA 5-15 ).

Thanks,

Dumb question.
I have an Ultra 10 workstation, plain vanilla, no additions
It was working FINE on solaris 5.8
Then Powered down.
Has anyone seen a hardware problem where the built in ethernet no longer
responds?

trying the ususal stuff at ok prompt didnt work,
comes up in standalone mode, cant ifconfig the interface (doesnt exist
anymore?)

Is it time to try a reinstall (again?)

Forgot to mention:
Checked cables, physical connectivity, etc, NO good:

Hi Sunmanagers

Little question because I don't find any answer!

The "last" command which will show where was loged in the last time and also
what was the last "bootime" etc. doesn't function anymore!

I don't why but I could imagine that somebody of the administrators has
manipulate the responsable files in /var/adm/.

My question is how can I reinitialize the "last" command with the
responsable files without booting the server?

Could anybody help me! Thanks in advance for the help.

Subject: SUMMARY : How to identify LVD/HVD for a SCSI SBUS card ?
Message-ID: <0F406437D3C4D6119010009027D0897C831ED0@bordeaux-mess.bordeaux.eur.slb.com>

Firstly, many thanks for the dozen of people who helped me to understand all
this SCSI terminology mess.
The sunmanager list is truly amazing, I would not hope getting such a quick
and valuable help from Sun support.

Now for my question, I'm 100% sure that X1062A and  L3500 DLT are HVD.
The confusion comes from the "Differential" label, which, left alone, means
HVD only.
Even if LVD is differential too, it is never labeled "Differential", but
"LVD" or "LVD/SE" if compatible with SE.
So the L3500 link on SunHandBook is wrong stating that X1062A is LVD.

I also double-check the connectors on the rear side of the L3500, there are
HVD diamonds (there are 4 types : SE, HVD, LVD, LVD/SE).

Aaron Taylor also has the same X1062A card and confirmed this is an HVD
card.

Finally, I will quote Ben Rockwood's answer as it gives many useful
information.
Thanks again.

This is an HVD device.  Search Sun.com for ISP1000 and you get a PDF manual
for the " SBus Wide Intelligent Ultra SCSI Diff Host Adapter Guide ".
Generally speaking, if you just see the words " Differential " it's HVD.
Because LVD devices are also SE compatable it's either not pointed out
thatit's LVD or it's explicetly said LVD not just Diff.
I understand your frustration, I went thru this too awhile back.  Just a
refresher for you...
1)	HVD can not support Single Ended (SE or normal SCSI) devices.
2)	LVD can support both LVD and SE devices
3)	LVD and HVD are not in any way compatable, you can not put LVD
devices on a HVD controller, and you can not put HVD devices on a LVD
controller.  In this way you can think of there being 2 destinct forms of
SCSI: LVD/SE and HVD.
4)	You can tell which is which in 2 ways.  First, HVD cables are much
thicker than LVD/SE cables usually.  Second, look at the SCSI symbol.

To refresh yourself on SCSI symbols look here
(http://scsifaq.paralan.com/scsifaqanswers4.html
<http://scsifaq.paralan.com/scsifaqanswers4.html> ) at the bottom of the
page.  Notice, HVD has a < outside the SCSI dimond, whereas the LVD has it
inside.
Whenever you see that angle outside the dimand your looking at an HVD
device.
Never mix LVD and HVD because of diffrence in voltages you can do serious
damage.
As for getting part numbers from the OS, you can't rely on it, sometimes
it'll be there, sometimes it won't.  If it's not, take the part description
(in this case QLGC,ISP1000) and look it up in the FE Handbook
(http://sunsolve.sun.com/handbook_pub/
<http://sunsolve.sun.com/handbook_pub/> ) to see what you find.
Good luck, hope this helps.

Objet:	FOLLOW-UP : How to identify LVD/HVD for a SCSI SBUS card ?

Well, in spite of all useful information you send to me (many thanks), I'm
still a bit confused :

On the robotic side (L3500), there is a "double diamond" logo on each SCSI
connector, with a "SCSI Diff" label : that should mean "HVD", right ?

On the server side (E6500), I have cards which were bought with reference
"X1062A".
I checked on Sunsolve, but there are two contradictory labels for "X1062A"

-	On the E6500 link
(http://sunsolve.sun.com/handbook_pub/Systems/L3500/component.scsi.html
<http://sunsolve.sun.com/handbook_pub/Systems/L3500/component.scsi.html> )
the label is "Differential Fast/Wide SCSI-2 (DWIS/SBus)(LVD)" : that should
mean "LVD" ??
-	On the L3500 link
(http://sunsolve.sun.com/handbook_pub/Systems/E6500/component.scsi.html
<http://sunsolve.sun.com/handbook_pub/Systems/E6500/component.scsi.html> )
the label is "Differential Fast/Wide SCSI-2 Host Adapter (DWIS/S)" : that
should mean "HVD" ??

The card has "ISP1000" chip, and the chip is labeled "Single Ended or
Differential" : that should mean "HVD", right ?

I suspect the "LVD" term in the L3500 link to be wrong, am I right ?

Hi,

Our E6500 has 2 SBUS F/W SCSI Differential cards, connected to a Sun
StorEdge L3500 DLT robotic device.

The problem is : I don't know if the cards are LVD or HVD ?

Here is the "prtdiag"output for theses 2 cards :

9   SBus   25            0  QLGC,isp/sd (block)               QLGC,ISP1000

9   SBus   25            1  QLGC,isp/sd (block)               QLGC,ISP1000

I don't know how to get the Part Number from the OS.
Any idea ?

Yes, it has fallen off the earth.Its not a product from Sun anymore.  It is used by Sun in their LDAP training class IN-350 (351?),which I took about 2 months ago.   I believe it was included in the 4.7 directory server.Openssl is the obvious option, going to Verisign is another (more costly) option.alan

All responses stated pretty much the same thing:  Scratch
space is used to hold the original version of blocks that changed
while the fssnap was active, so its size is activity related
rather than being related to filesystem size or used space.
The file is "sparse" so don't get freaked out by the "ls -l"
output; use "du -k" to determine space used.

Hi.

Thanks for your quick and kind responses.

Original question is at the end of summary.

Answer:
I don't have to modify shm vaules in the /etc/system file. It's just
system wide maximum limits.

Thanks again!

Original question follows.

Lots of out of office replies.

The following solution from Eugene and John did allow me to mount the
metadevice. There were problems with listing permissions and not
everything was accessible. In my case it was not good enough to be worth
retrieving the data and it was un-fsckable to get it into any better
shape.

Thanks John & Eugene

Hi

My guess is that you "could" do. I would do something like the
following:

metaclear d0

metainit d0 2 1 c0t1d0s5 \
         1 c0t2d0s5

mount -o ro /dev/md/dsk/d0 /export/home

You should be able to see the first lot of data, however be prepared for
errors.

Another factor would be how full the disk was. If all 3 were of equal
size
and you used more than 66% of the total size, we would be using the 3rd
disk. However, even so, if I was writing a large file, that would
fragment
on the first two, it woul write to the 3rd. This file could also be an
updated version of a previous that has grown.

Do not try while people are on the system, you could get a panic or two.

Regards

Eugene

Hello Martin,

What you want MAY be possible, no guarantees. The problem will be with
the
file system, not the metadevice. The file system will be smaller than is
should be so fsck will always fail, but if the file system is clean you
will
be able to mount it and get your data off.

Here's what you do....

    metaclear d0
    metainit d0 2 1 c0t1d0s5 1 c0t2d0s5

That will get you a smaller d0 back, but as I say any problems will be
at
the file system level.

Hope this helps,

John.

No obvious solution so far. Most likely culprit seems to be long usb
cables and/or bad usb connectors somewhere. 

David Foster suggested :

If you need longer runs you can use a standard minidin-8 Sun
keyboard/mouse (round 8-pin connector) and get a usb/minidin-8
converter from http://www.ultraspec.com . They have a $175 model
for really long runs, and a cheaper one for shorter ones. 

which I'll look into.

Thanks to Ronny Martin as well for, hmm, moral support. Seems sunboxes
can be a bit demanding in the cuddle department.

Message-ID: <000e01c3be51$b75cb340$2dacfdc6@nips.spawar.navy.mil>

The controller board was bad and the four Controller boards we had in stock
did not work. After SUN came on-site they ended up replacing the 4
controller boards that we had in stock. We tested the four new ones and they
all worked fine. Did not received reason on why the stock boards did not
work.

We have a R420 SUN Server with an A1000 Array. After boot up we are unable
to see the array and we receive the following message.
"/usr/lib/osa/bin/arraymon: No RAID devices found to check". We tried both
Solaris 2.6 and Solaris 8 and get the same message. A boot -r was also
performed. We have RAID Manager Version 06.01.01.11. When performing
probe-scsi-all we can see the RAID. We replaced the controller board which
did not help. Any suggestions?

Both sugggested to simply make an entry in /etc/mail/aliases of the

That is really much easier that what I had in mind. Thanks a lot!

I haven't gotten any insight into this question except that "it
could be any number of things." 

One user told me to apply the recommended patch cluster, but of
course the error hasn't repeated itself, so I'm not sure whether
it is fixed or whether the problem hasn't occurred again.

I'd also like to publicly berate Jason Shatzkame, Manohar Nayak, Robert
Rheault, George Badinter, Gustavo Tobares, Roger Leoonard, Cheryl
Beedy, David Ballesteros, George Robinson, and Iquo Abia for sending me
their idiotic "out of office autoreply" messages. It sure is nice to
know that every time I send a message to Sun Managers, I'll get an
immediate flood of messages indicating which MS Exchange users are out
of the office. Gee. Thanks, guys. Maybe they'll send me the worm du

After replacing the disk board we were able to see the disks.

Original Question:

I have an E4500 with Solaris 8. The server was running fine and then the
next morning when I came in I noticed that it was at the OK prompt (Poss.
Pwr outage). When typing boot disk it comes back with Can't open boot device
and when I do a probe-scsi-all it does not see the two disks. I replaced
both internal disks, did a reset-all and still cannot see the disks. There
is an amber light on next to the switch in front and an amber light lit on
the clock board. Any possible reasons for not seeing the disks?

Hi,
    Special thanks to the following people for their
prompt response -------------
Paul Theodoropoulos, Parkins Larye , Sandwich Maker,
Jaehne Richard and Sanchia Baker

Most of the responses suggested that the problem
seemed to originate due to CPU problem as highlighted
from the message log 
fatal system fault: sipr=40000000
Async Fault from module 0: afsr b302000 afar=8b78580

Since both systems are located in the same quadrant, 
power fluctuations or some static discharge seem to be
the most likely cause.

In retrospect I changed the defective CPU's on both
the systems. This seems to have resolved the problem
as the systems have been quite stable after that. 

Regards,
Amit

This morning i'm trying to install the recommended and security
patches as many times before and i've got "new-to-me" error-codes
from the install-cluster script, which i cannot find in the manpage
of patchadd.

Could someone please point me to the right place where i can find
the "link" between return code number and the meaning of it?

I believe i remember that "2" means, "patch installation fails,
because it is already installed and "8", "patch istallation fails,
because the original package itself is not installed", 
but what does "5" and "25" means?

Thank you very much!

Bernt Christandl

Okay, so I RTFM'd a bit more and answered my own question. /etc/nodename was
gone. Sorry to have bothered you all.

Subject: "unknown" host

I am running Solaris 9 for Intel on a Dell Optiplex GX115.

My hostname is "unknown". I don't quite understand why. My hostname.elxl0
file reads "wa567sun", my hosts file has 2 entries:

127.0.0.1    localhost
134.154.84.77    wa567sun    wa567sun.csuhayward.edu    loghost

I get my proper IP address, everything appears okay and everything works, it
is just coming from host "unknown". I verified that hostname.elxl0 is
spelled correctly. I must be missing something simple -- can someone kick me
the right direction?. Thanks in advance.

Subject: SUMMARY:Cannot load Solaris 8
Message-ID: <000001c3cf08$edb1db10$2dacfdc6@nips.spawar.navy.mil>

Thanks for all the responses! After further troubleshooting we determined
that the CD was bad and got a replacement.

Original Question:

I currently have an E4500 which I replaced with two new drives. When I place
the Solaris 8 02/02 Disk software 1 0f 2 in and type: boot cdrom I get the
following messages:

Not a valid elf file

File just loaded does not appear to be executable.

I never saw this before when installing an operating system and am checking
to see if it is a bad cd or drive. Any suggestions??

Message-ID: <120820032125.9918.5003@comcast.net>

Many thinks to Crist Clark, ippy at optonline.net and Chris Pinnock.

The solution is: put the frodo.domain and app.domain into local-host-names file in the /etc/mail. I belive using virual domain is another option, but we use the same domain, so we are not necessary to go that farhter.

My orignal post was:

There are two network interfaces on an host, each one is binding an IP.
The IPs have DNS entry, frodo( host name ) and app. I can send email to a user 
on that machine like user at frodo.domain, but I can not send email to 
user at app.domain. What is the easy sulotion? Thanks.

Message-ID: <20031216100712.A29025@scr.cmi.univ-mrs.fr>

sorry for this late summary, but we have to do tests.                           
Solution was to regenerate certificate, there is a bug in it                    

so mozilla 1.2.1 works well!                                                    

thanks to tim chipman and david foster for their replies                        

Here is my original post:
i'm using mozilla 1.2.1 from sun.                                               
We have pops on our mail server, with unofficial certificate (we have no        
+authority sign).                                                               
When i try to get my mail, mozilla says:                                        
"Could not establish an encrypted connection because certificate presented by   
+mailserver is invalid or corrupted"                                            
Is it possible to force mozilla to accept my certificate?                       
Others mail clients seems to accept this certificate (i.e. apple mail, ...)

Excellent response times, as usual. Thanks a lot to:

M. Lehmann and S. Burr for pointing me towards the support matrix:

http://sunsolve.sun.com/pub-cgi/retrieve.pl?doc=finfodoc%2F10012

Basically for Solaris 2.6, the patch supply ended by 07/23/2003, the
general support and access to existing patches will continue until
07/23/2006.

Oh, also thanks to

Original question:
========================================================================

 Hello List,

 apologies for the simple question but i have some time pressure here
 and the answer was not obvious on sunsolve. Can anyone point me to
 some document that will clarify exactly when which OS version expires
 in terms of support and patches?
 TIA,

Just had to make sure that the master drive was jumpered as a master

boot it up and 'devfsadm' and we're there. Thanks to all who wrote.

The answer was obvious, and I should have thought of any

1. reconfiguration boot with boot -r
2. touch /reconfigure; reboot
3. drvconfig && devlinks && disks

Your root shell is expanding the $HOME variable before the 'su' command 
executes, so effectively you're asking su to execute "echo /cw".

You need to escape the $.  For example:

su - interface -c "echo \$HOME"

The solution to this problem is to label the disk.
These disk store the metadata of emc, hence they are read only. Speak to emc
tell them the OS needs to label these disks.
Emc guys will have to come on site, alter the the disk make it read/write,
Then sysadmin will label the disk using the format cmd ( select disk and label
cmd) to label the disk. Emc will then change the disk back to read only.

Message-ID: <Sea1-F163xPY0RXdQxo00026dff@hotmail.com>

Thanks  gurus for your replies.

i had to edit the  /etc/passwd file and change any '/usr/local/bin/tcsh' to 
'/bin/tcsh'.
and it worked fine.

The reason as why this happened is as poinetd out:

When you're logged as root and type 'tcsh', it finds one which is in the
PATH environment variable. But at login time, there is no such environment
variable yet, and no tcsh found since the path you provided is wrong.

Hi Dinesh,

I received quite a few replies, about a dozen, and that's not even counting
the kind people who let me know that they were Out of the Office early for
the holidays. The general consensus is that skipping patches that you 
already have on your system is a safe thing to do.

However, most people recommended an approach like,

  cd 8_Recommended
  mv patch_order patch_order.dist
  while read PATCH; do
	[ ! -d /var/sadm/patch/$PATCH ] && echo $PATCH
  done < patch_order.dist > patch_order

And then running install_cluster. One way to do this, that is easily 
portable across systems is to add the directory existence check to
the install_cluster script itself,

*** install_cluster.orig        Fri Dec 12 15:13:14 2003
--- install_cluster     Wed Dec 17 15:39:45 2003
***************
*** 219,225 ****
  fi

  for patch in ${patchlist} ; do
!       if [ -d $patch ]; then
                echo "Installing ${patch}..." | tee -a ${LOGFILE}
                finished="NO"
                ( /usr/sbin/patchadd ${saveold} ${patch} ) >> ${LOGFILE} 2>&1
--- 219,225 ----
  fi

  for patch in ${patchlist} ; do
!       if [ -d $patch ] && [ ! -d /var/sadm/patch/$patch ]; then
                echo "Installing ${patch}..." | tee -a ${LOGFILE}
                finished="NO"
                ( /usr/sbin/patchadd ${saveold} ${patch} ) >> ${LOGFILE} 2>&1

Another (more robust?) variant is to use 'showrev -p' to build a list of
installed patches rather than the '-d /var/sadm/patch/$PATCH' test.

(FWIW, I was nuking patch directories 'cause the machine I was using
as an example is tight on scratch space and I wanted to free up some
disk.)

Finally, Sun's PatchPro was recommended, but it looks like you need 
JRE, WBEM, and other assorted cruft that I do not have on most servers.
(Unless it's a tool where you may have one PatchPro installation
supporting patches on multiple hosts, but that wasn't clear from the quick
docs I read.)

Subject: SUMMARY: Progam that doesn't accept STDIN pipes
Message-ID: <MJEEINAGGJHPLGCPHKBOKECPCBAA.evoisard@atisuher.ch>

Hi,

Given the number of replies I got, I should feel somewhat ignorant not to
know 'expect'!
Thanks to the many people who gave me suggestions.

My problem is a program which is normally used interactively, but which
fails on STDIN input pipes. Such a command doesn't work: 'echo my_string |
/path/prog', nor does '/path/prog < file'.

What I've noticed with 'truss /path/prog' is that my program does indeed use
STDIN (no tty as I supposed), and makes some read(0,*buf, size) on it. I
guess it is doing things on its own on SDTIN and doesn't expect some EOF.

As most people suggested, running my prog through the tcl tool "Expect"
http://expect.nist.gov/ could do the trick. There is a Solaris precompiled
version at http://www.sunfreeware.com. This would need the Tcl package.

I also found a Perl module 'comm.pl'at http://www.cpan.ch and which is
supposed to do a similar work.

Again, many thanks to all, Eric Voisard

Subject: SUMMARY: Port aggregation
Message-ID: <3FE8A6E6.9030503@atriumwindows.com>

Thanks to Brandon Cate, Jeff Vaneek and Amiel Lee Yee for suggesting  
SunTrunking. Thanks also to Brandon for introducing me to his company's 
product, Nic Express. Both products are extra cost of course, and while 
have their advantages, I wanted to do this with Solaris. I had read 
about this feature but I couldn't find the name.

Extra points go to Darren Dunham for not only suggesting SunTrunking, 
but also IPMP as a viable solution:

"IPMultipathing isn't quite aggregation, but it does allow outbound
traffic to use both ports, and it allows for failover if an interface
dies.  It may be sufficient for your needs.
It's included in Solaris from Solaris 8 10/01 forward."

This works out well for me at this point. According to Sun:

"Outbound Load Spreading: Spread outbound network packets across 
multiple network adapters - without affecting the ordering of packets - 
in order to achieve higher throughput. Load spreading occurs when the 
network traffic is flowing to multiple destinations using multiple 
connections."

Thanks,
Francois

Message-ID: <Law14-F116UOeLsg3gx0006ba23@hotmail.com>

Hi,

Thx very much for every sunmanagers that responded. I did solved the first question which is the backup job require too much space which the tape cannot provide. I solved it by eliminating unneccessary files from the backup job.

While for the second question, I have changed the time slot for this machine to another timeslot which separated from other server but it also failed several times per day. Any hints for me ?? FYI only this server failed in NTPDATE but not all others.

	Hi Gang,

	This is an auto-summary message ;) .
	Never ask any question about this issue on the list, but I want to be
sure anyone else could resolve by himself.

	The problem was :

		gcc 3 used to work on my Solaris 9 sparc box.
		One day, after some patchadd I think (I can't be sure...), I read :

make hello
gcc     hello.c   -o hello
collect2: ld terminated with signal 4 [Illegal Instruction], core dumped
make: *** [hello] Error 1

	Truss told me I'm using Sun as and ld, so no problem around this.

	Version of patch 112963 was 05 .

	Applying 112963-10 resolve the issue.

	Thanks.

	Nicolas

Gurus,

Thank you very much for the help. I figured out the problem. I was not aware that the primary interface was the one sending packets and if you have other interface configured, it could be the one receiving the packets. Thanks to you for informing about it, you know who you are. For all of you who replied, thank you very much. Your replies may not exactly solve my problem, but they surely give additional information to me. What a great help!!!

Happy Holidays!!!

Gurus,

I need your help. I have qfe card. The qfe0 and qfe1 ports are both connected to the same subnet and same switch. We do this for failover purpose. If qfe0 fails, we can still access the server through qfe1. If I configure the IPs for qfe0 and qfe1 manually, I can ping them from the other hosts. But everytime I reboot the server, even if the /etc/hostname.qfe0, /etc/hostname.qfe1, /etc/defaultrouter, /etc/netmasks, /etc/hosts and local-mac-address?=false are configured properly, I can not ping the IPs. The ifconfig -a shows that the IPs are set for the qfe0 and qfe1 and both interfaces are using same mac address but I can't ping them. I have to unplumb and plumb the interfaces again and reassign the IPs to them to be able to ping them. What is wrong with my configuration, why the IPs are not pinging when the server gets rebooted.

Thanks a lot in advance,
Sunsa

Ok,

Thanks to everyone for the help, especially Casper Dik.

I found the drive in /dev/dsk
I also found fsck in /usr/sbin/

I tried to run "fsck -m c0t0d0s0" in /dev/dsk, but it said
"fsck: error, fsck not applicable for FSType nfs"

so I ran "fsck /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s0" and the drive was fixed
and is now back up and running.

Thanks!
Taber

Is it a Disksuite volume or an ordinary filesystem?

It should be listed under /dev/dsk?

There's no need; fsck should be run before it is
mounted.

fsck is /usr/sbin/fsck and should be in $PATH when you
boot from CD.

I have an ultra 60 that was working fine then the Solaris version 8 did
not want to boot.
I have tried a boot -s and a boot -r and no luck it boots up till the
line where it sets the IPv4 default route 224.0:/loeb then it just sits
there.  I can only Stop A and startup boot again.
I can get it to boot in single user mode if I go into maintenance mode.

Ultra 60 2 x300Mhz 500mb ram patched and was functioning as a
workstation on LAN w/no problems. openboot prom 3.27
Thanks for any help,

Subject: Summary: Manually setting nic speed / duplex problem Solaris 9
Message-ID: <4242F92CA015D5119B9600600834014207737391@claven.cistech.com>

First thanks to all the people who replied: Vinnie German, Alan Fox, Mike
Demarco, joe_flethcer at btconnect.com, Chad Johnson, Darren Dunham,
john at jc.homeunix.net, ed.rolison at jtc.alstom.com, Eric Voisard, Matthew
Hallam, David Harrington, I hope I did not left anyone off.

My original problem was -

I have a sunfire v120 running solaris 9.
I manually set the speed on the nic card you can use the following command:

ndd -set /dev/eri adv_autoneg_cap 0
ndd -set /dev/eri adv_10hdx_cap 0
ndd -set /dev/eri adv_10fdx_cap 0
ndd -set /dev/eri adv_100hdx_cap 0
ndd -set /dev/eri adv_100fdx_cap 1

I also added this to the /etc/system file to make to setting permenant So it
would be set correctly on reboot.

set eri:eri_adv_100fdx_cap=1
set eri:eri_adv_100hdx_cap=0
set eri:eri_adv_10fdx_cap=0
set eri:eri_adv_10hdx_cap=0
set eri:eri_adv_autoneg_cap=0

But when I rebooted the server and checked to nic configuration, all the
setting were reset to 1

ndd -get /dev/eri adv_autoneg_cap
1
ndd -get /dev/eri adv_10hdx_cap 
1
ndd -get /dev/eri adv_10fdx_cap 
1
ndd -get /dev/eri adv_100hdx_cap 
1
ndd -get /dev/eri adv_100fdx_cap 
1

Anything thoughts on what might be causing this to happen?
Also I have an older ultra 1 that has solaris 9 loaded on it. It's nic is
the /dev/le0 type
When I try to check the nic speed / settings I get this error any thoughts?

ndd -get /dev/le adv_10fdx_cap
Operation failed: Invalid arguement

The answer about the le0 is the easy part and submitted by Darren:

The le driver does not support the 'ndd' interface.
It doesn't matter though.  The le driver is 10mb/s, half-duplex only. The
adapter does not support any form of autonegotiation.

The rest of the question is answered in various forms from the rest of the
group but can be summarized as follows:

To set the settings by hand without reboot use do this
You may need to set the instance. E.g.

ndd -set /dev/eri instance 0
ndd -set /dev/eri adv_10hdx_cap 0
ndd -set /dev/eri adv_10fdx_cap 0
ndd -set /dev/eri adv_100hdx_cap 0
ndd -set /dev/eri adv_100fdx_cap 1
ndd -set /dev/eri adv_autoneg_cap 0

Note that the "adv_autoneg_cap" should be the LAST entry.

Dbh

The settings in the /etc/system to make it permanent on reboot put the in
/etc/system this way:
If you have an hme or qfe interface notice that the eri interface variable
are set
differently versus hme/qfe interface format of    set
hme:hme_adv_autoneg_cap=0 as Matt states.

set eri:adv_100fdx_cap=1
set eri:adv_100T4_cap=0
set eri:adv_100hdx_cap=0
set eri:adv_10fdx_cap=0
set eri:adv_10hdx_cap=0
set eri:adv_autoneg_cap=0

ie without the "eri_" prefix on each one.. Sun have been inconsistent 
here given that you have to use hme_ and qfe_ prefixes on their hme and 
qfe interfaces

hope this helps
Matt

I checked and we do not have another script that is overwriting the values
from /etc/system at startup as pointed by Eric.
Are you sure your /etc/system settings aren't overridden by some other
startup script? Here, we have a script in /etc/rc2.d to force the nic card's
settings...

Yours, Eric Voisard

Also ensure you have the correct interface instance set to see the settings:
Do you have more than one NIC?
Because if you do, you might have to do an 'ndd -set instance [1|0]'

HTH
Ed Rolison

Another tip is to see all the varibles available of the /dev/eri device
follow JC's advice.
also, with checking interfaces try: ndd -get /dev/eri \? 
and my sure you instance is set correctly... You should be able to check and

change the ones that say (read and write) if you have not made them perm. in
the 
/etc/system file.  Hope this helps.
JC

Another method as pointed out by Chad Johnson:
The driver looks for the <driver>.conf file on boot by default.

Yeah, what I meant is that when you enter information into the eri.conf file
you dont have to state the 'ndd -set /dev/eri' info since it knows it is for
all devices and it know it is for eri (eri.conf).

If you put this:

adv_autoneg_cap 0
adv_100T4_cap  0
adv_10fdx_cap  0
adv_10hdx_cap 0
adv_100hdx_cap 0
adv_100fdx_cap 1

into /kernel/drv/sparcv9/eri.conf and reboot all devices should be set from
that point on.  Then the S99 files can be use to make changes on a  per
interface basis.  So if you had eri0,eri1 and eri2 they would all be set to
100 full duplex, but you could override that for any one with the S99 file.
Say eri1 had to be 10 half duplex, you only put the entries for that in the
S99 file to change just that one and the others would still be defaulted to
100/full duplex.

Also, as a side note, it is normal convention to place the startup script in
/etc/init.d and then link back to it with a symbolic link.  So you would
have /etc/init.d/netcfg.eri and then would do 'ln -s /etc/init.d/netcfg.eri
/etc/rc3.d/S99netcfg.eri'.

Hope this helps.

Another helpful tool is the setndd.sh by Mike Dermarco
#! /bin/sh

# read all interface configs from system

echo "setting all network interfaces to 100/Full"

types="hme|qfe|eri|ce|dmfe|bge"

iface=`/usr/sbin/ifconfig -au | egrep $types | awk -F: '{ print $1 }'`

# this will not do interfaces above single digits
for interface in ${iface}
do
    driver=`echo ${interface} | sed "s/[0-9]//"`
    instance=`echo ${interface} | sed "s/[a-z]*//"`
    if [ "$driver" = "bge" ] || [ "$driver" = "dmfe" ] ; then
        driver="$driver$instance"
    else
        /usr/sbin/ndd -set /dev/${driver} instance ${instance}
    fi
    /usr/sbin/ndd -set /dev/${driver} adv_1000fdx_cap 0
    /usr/sbin/ndd -set /dev/${driver} adv_1000hdx_cap 0
    /usr/sbin/ndd -set /dev/${driver} adv_100fdx_cap 1
    /usr/sbin/ndd -set /dev/${driver} adv_100hdx_cap 0
    /usr/sbin/ndd -set /dev/${driver} adv_10fdx_cap 0
    /usr/sbin/ndd -set /dev/${driver} adv_10hdx_cap 0
    /usr/sbin/ndd -set /dev/${driver} adv_autoneg_cap 0
done

echo "All network interfaces have been set to 100/Full"

This can be adapted to your particular interface type.

I made the setting changes in the correct places but it did not fix my
problem I'm having, but since there was so much good info that others might
find helpful, I will summarize this and start another question thread about
incoming packet errors and how to find the source of that problem.

Thanks to all.

Message-ID: <008001c3bfe0$bd3766d0$f6c8a8c0@pepstep>

Thanks to all that replied, especially Darren Dunham.

As it turn out it is possible and it works quite well.  I will be testing
the full restore later this morning on the actual server in question.

When you install the second instance you need to do an INITIAL install and
then preserve all of the other partitions....for filesystems, I just renamed
the mount point by prefixing it with a /a.  In my case I only needed to
install the core OS and then install the VRTS NBU agent.

The key is to pay attention to the bootpath before you go and install the
second instance.  Write it down and then install.  Then to change it all
that is required is to go into the DCA and when you are given the option of
where to boot from, select BOOT TASKS...then you can go and change the
bootpath and boot from the disk.

Alternatively, if the system is up and running and you want to change to the
bootpath it should be possible to do this with the eeprom command.  (This I
haven't had a chance to test yet.)

Regards,
Marco

The unanimous verdict is that it's no problem whatsoever, aside from 
obvious things like not letting the install program access the second 
disk and accidently newfs partitions on it. I should also point out my 
choice of words wasn't the best when I posed the original question - I 
meant to say *install* Solaris 9 over the Solaris 8 system, not 
*upgrade* Sol8 -> Sol9. No matter - it's still ok for Solaris 9 to read 
Solaris 8 formatted file systems

Thanks again to those who responded!

Willie suggested that the motherboard was bad.
Eric said to check anything connected to ttya, since this is coming from

I haven't tried the suggestions yet, the system will likely be swapped with 
a spare.

I haven't been able to find any information on the following error. It is 
on an Ultra-10 running Solaris 2.5.1 (I know it is old, but it is a legacy 
system).

pcio=pci serr level 14 interrupt

The system then drops to the 'ok' prompt.

Has anyone seen this before or know what it is?

Sorry for the late summary.  I received one reply (thanks JV) posted 
below, and a lot of vacation notes from people who were on vacation.  
JV's reply and my original message are posted below.

I am assuming that I didn't receive many replies because my question 
was poorly worded.  Probably I should have wrote:

I want to play with logical system partitions for my own personal 
training, i.e. non commercial use.  I have access to a E3500.  If this 
will work, please let me know.  If not, what lower end system would be 
allow this.  I did look around at www.sun.com , but I didn't come 
across any documents as such as a HCL.  If you have a url where I can 
RTFM, I would appreciate it.

Thank you,

If I get any further with this, I will update my summary

===================================================================

mid range equipment e3800/e4800/e6800 can already do domaining.
If UE3500/4500/6500s can do domains, Sun is full of idiots because
then why would I upgrade to an e6800 when I can buy a dozen used
e6500s and make 120 virtual domains for the same price?

Don't know about Solaris 10 for SPARC, but with Solaris Express I got
the beta for Solaris 10/INTEL x86. Of course there are no domains for
x86 hardware, but I betcha domaining is for modern US-III/SunFire/PCI
stuff only. An e3500 is old, they came out in 1996. Let the poor old
dog rest in peace.

Hello all fellow Sunmanagers:

	I have installed CUPS and ESPgostscript version 7.07. I was able to
configure
to drive me Epson Photo printer, but I am having a problem. I keep getting
"No
pages found!" error in the /var/log/cups/error_log file. I have turned debug
messages to its highest setting and have figured out that this message is
coming from ghostscript. Has anyone been able to fix this problem?

TIA

Thanks to Clive McAdam and Hichael Morton.

To quote Hichael :

cpu indicates which die is used to create the cpu.
die = pattern
the cpu mask does not effect the opperation of anything.
the sun field engineer was correct in saying this is normal.
(sun only looks at part numbers when replacing parts.)
it is for you to decide if you are just paranoid.

Objet:	CPU Mask Meaning ?

What is the meaning of the prtdiag's 'CPU Mask' value on a E6500 ?

Recently, one of our CPU died and was replaced by Sun.
After next reboot, the "CPU Mask" of the replaced CPU changed from "10.0" to
"1.0".

I ask the tech. if this is normal, and he says he used the same Part Number
for the replaced CPU module, so it is normal.
But I'm still suspicious about this.

Here is the prtdiag output (CPU have mirrored E-cache) :

I just wanted to thank everyone...and there was a lot, that responded.
Your info was useful and I got SAR running.  Thought I would just
compile info out of the responses and pass it on down the line.  

SAR not running: ...........check the following 
Make sure lines in the SYS crontab are uncommented.  (don't edit the
crontab file under /var/spool/cron/crontabs) 

# crontab -l sys 
#ident  "@(#)sys        1.5     92/07/14 SMI"   /* SVr4.0 1.2   */ 
# The sys crontab should be used to do performance collection. See cron 
# and performance manual pages for details on startup.

5 18 * * 1-5 /usr/lib/sa/sa2 -s 8:00 -e 18:01 -i 1200 -A 

Go to /var/adm and make sure your sa file permissions look like this: 
drwxrwxr-x   2 adm      sys          512 Dec 12 00:00 sa 

Make sure your SYS in the /etc/passwd looks something like this: 
sys:x:3:3::/:       (keep an eye out for something like a noshell) 

Make sure the sys user entry in the /etc/shadow file contain the string
"NP" not *LK*. 

Check your perf file: 
# pwd 
/etc/init.d 
# cat perf 
#!/sbin/sh

        /usr/bin/su sys -c "/usr/lib/sa/sadc /var/adm/sa/sa`date +%d`" 

.....then do a  ./perf start 

Go to your /usr/lib/sa and make sure they look something like this:

Thanks to following people. Below comments from them. At the end -
original question.

Christopher Saul

Since most of the 1280s we sell go in a Sun Cluster config, which gives
you high availability with a good price, the 1280 is really the best
option to go for, unless you really need the domains or the extreme
availability of the 4800.

Major diffs are -

1280

12RUs, non redundant fireplane, 1.5GB/se I/O BW, internal storage, 6 PCI
slots, no domains, 3500W, not full H/W redundancy.

4800

17.5RUs, redundant fireplane, 4.8Gb/sec I/O BW, no internal storage,
16PCI/8cPCI slots, domains, 3920W, full H/W redundancy.

Alex Madden

The 3800 was discontinuted because the 1280 was percieved to eat its
lunch,

Cole Oshaughnessy

Sun appears to have built the V1280 to EOL the F4800.  I suspect
the F4800 will be end of lifed rather soon.  The V1280 has a
much smaller
footprint than the F4800, the upgrade boards are cheaper [list
price wise
anyhow], and you can fit several in a Cabinet, where as in the
case of the
F4800, only one could be installed per Cabinet.  I don't have
any
documents to point you to, but that is all the information that
I can
provide you with at this time.

Tom Jones

We just purchased three V1280s instead of 4800s.  Since we
didn't need
the domaining functionality, the lower cost of the V1280s was
the
primary factor for chosing them.

Hi all,

Thanks for all the replies.  Here is what I did.

To set the keep alive parameter, I put a script in /etc/rc2.d with the line

ndd -set /dev/tcp tcp_keepalive_interval 60000.

Thanks

Group,
	Many thanks to all who responded.   The answer is basically NO.
While the A1000 will support multiple hosts, it does not support dual
channeling on a single host.   That would be the D1000.

Thanks again Scott,

Hey all,

Just to summarize a script to find users not logged in for more then last 3
months.

#A for loop on logins of users with username as input
for i in `logins -u| awk '{print $1}'` ;
do
{
## From the last command find the last month of user login & convert the
month string into corresponding number
lastmth=`last -n 1 $i|grep -v wtmp|sed '/^$/d'|sed 's/Dec/12/'|sed
's/Nov/11/'|sed 's/Oct/10/'|sed 's/Sep/9/'|s
ed 's/Aug/8/'|sed 's/Jul/7/'|sed 's/Jun/6/'|sed 's/May/5/'|sed
's/Apr/4/'|sed 's/Mar/3/'|sed 's/Feb/2/'|sed 's/
Jan/1/'|awk '{print $5}'`
A variable for current month
currmth=`date +%m`
#IF the last month value is non-null
if [ $lastmth ]
then
{
## If the difference is greater then 3 months echo that username or to
disable the login run passwd -l on $i
echo $currmth $lastmth
diff=`expr $currmth - $lastmth`
echo $diff
if [ $diff -gt 3 ]
then
echo $i
else
echo "$i is new"
fi
}
fi

} ;
done

Hope this helps.
If any of you find better ideas let everyone know.
I think this can be still improved..

Thanks,
Himanshu

Message-ID: <001301c3c327$32de82d0$5123758d@RU117806>

I received no replies to my query, but the following did the trick.

# vi   /platform/sun4u/kernel/drv/ce.conf
# cat /platform/sun4u/kernel/drv/ce.conf
name="pci108e,abba" parent="/pci at 9,700000" unit-address="2"
adv_autoneg_cap=0 adv_10hdx_cap=0 adv_10fdx_cap=0 adv_100hdx_cap=0
adv_100fdx_cap=1 adv_1000hdx_cap=0 adv_1000fdx_cap=0 adv_100T4_cap=0;
#

Note that the file contains only one line.

With the above ce.conf file, ce0 (the bottom-most interface on my V480)
comes up FDX/100 with autonegotiation disabled.

The problem was in the documentation (cited below, in the original query).
The parent parameter needed a '/' and the adv parameters needed underscores
rather than hyphens.

Subject: SUMMARY:nis server unreachable error when initializing nis client
Message-ID: <200312151813.hBFIDjCe002302@raider.llnl.gov>

Solved.

The problem was the host was not in the /etc/hosts.allow file.

My original question 

I'm trying to initialize an NIS+ client running solaris 9
08-03 version.
I get this error 

Error: Could not create a valid NIS+ coldstart file
llnl.gov.: NIS+ servers unreachable.
**ERROR: nisinit failed.

When running  this command

/usr/lib/nis/nisclient -v -i -h server -a serverip -d domainname.

I have the client in the host table on the nis+ server.
I have the DES credentials created on the nis+ server.
I can ping the server from the client.
I have the serverse hostname and ip address in the /etc/hosts file on the client.
I have the nsswitch.nisplus file in use and the hosts entry
as files nisplus dns
I have the /etc/defaultdomain file set with the name of our nis+ domain
I have the /etc/resolv.conf file set with the domain name and 3 dns servers.

Any info would be great.

Subject: SUMMARY: sudo version 1.6.7p5 : using -H -u options on Solaris
  8
Message-ID: <BAY8-F125EC0regzy6g00018010@hotmail.com>

Hi all,

Many thanks to those that responded, as expected all responses were helpful.

In essence, using the -H -u option only designates the homedir of the target 
user but does NOT initialise any of the profile initialisation scripts such 
as .profile, .login or whatever variant of the shell you are using.

Hence the variables, as was pointed out, were never lost, they weren't there 
in the first place.

The solutions, in pretty much their original form, are as follows:

a) Use a command line syntax something like the following;

$ sudo su - oracle -c 'command to pass to oracle'

b) To set up an alias in the sudoers file something like the following;

alias orac 'sudo su - oracle -c'

This will allow you to do the thing that the user oracle requires while also 
allowing access to oracle's $HOME, $PATH, etc. by using the following;

$ orac "<required command>"

Note the double quotes; since they are required for 'su - user -c', they are 
also required for the orac alias.

c) To create shell wrapper scripts owned by the target secured user with 
correct permissions set, etc. which have the required commands within them 
as well as PATH variables, et al.  The idea is to allow any other user, as 
designated in the sudoers file who requires to use the command, to sudo to 
the script and not the actual command.

Again thanks to all who responded - my original note is below.

Regards,

David S.

====  original, (relevant), note ====

Hi all (again),

I must apologise as my original example seems to have put the trust of the 
question
into one of shell expansion rules and not what I really wanted to find out,
my fault for not thinking and for not giving a good example.

The main trust of my question is really this, when executing the command :

$ sudo -H -u oracle env

some of the variables are lost, for example, if I su to the oracle user
there is a CLASSPATH variable set which, as the oracle user I can see by
typing `echo $CLASSPATH` or I can also see it easily if I use the "env"
command as oracle and grep out CLASSPATH.

If I use the sudo command above while logged in as user X, I would expect
the output to be the same as if I used "env" as oracle.

Although some variables are correct, for example, when I use the above
command, the "env" output correctly tells me that the SUDO_USER is "X" and
that the USER is oracle BUT it doesn't pass over all variables, such as
CLASSPATH, etc. which are set up for oracle.

I hope that this is a little clearer and apologies for the stupid example.
(original note below) and I WILL summarise.

David S.

Message-ID: <200312161958.AZM99569@ms6.verisignmail.com>

Ah, yes, it *is* possible to install SunOS 4.0.3c from 
floppies!

A small error in the README caused most of the problems:

The first 4 floppies load SunOS in swap space, then a reboot 
is needed. The README says to use 
reboot sd(0,0,1) -sw

This doesn't work, what is needed is 

reboot "sd(0,0,1) -sw"

After that, the system boots from the swap partition and you 
can run suninstall to load in the other 20 or so floppies.

Thanks for your help,

Subject: SUMMARY: smc, patch management and blowfish/md5 encrypted root
 passwd
Message-ID: <3FDF8470.4010608@mail.AC>

Hi All,

	This is an automatic summary. I didn't ask this question before on 
sunmanagers, but after a day of fiddling around with passwords managed 
to find a bug in sun's sun management console.

Ok, simply said: smc does not support blowfish/md5 encrypted passwords 
in /etc/shadow

* I wrote a little how to long time ago on changing the default 
alg./password length for Solaris: 
http://www.mail.ac/users/bruno/solarispasswords.html

Sun's patch manager extensively use's Solaris Management Console 
server for patch admin. However if you've setup root passwd to be a 
blowfish/md5 encrypted password, you'll never be authenticated.

Workaround (change back to __unix__ from blowfish/md5):

1) Change /etc/security/policy.conf back to using
CRYPT_DEFAULT=__unix__

2) Edit the password field to be null in /etc/shadow for root (be 
careful here)

3) Change the password for root.

4) Restart smc. You should be able to login now.

-Kevin

"ndd -get /dev/<interface-name> link_speed" should give you a 0 or a 1

0 = 10mb
1 = 100mb

eg.
ndd -get /dev/hme link_speed

It is very possible. That is actually the first of the Ultra line to 
support it. You need X6730A which is part #540-2989 or #501-5266. It is 
a 64-bit Sbus card and will not work in anything other than the Ultra2, 
SS1000, SC2000, or E-series. This is what I use at home. Let me know if 
it gives you any issues.

Sorry for the delay on the solution.

The solution is to insure that your umask 022 when loading the Solaris
media kit on your jumpstart server. Not having it set properly causes
installation issues. 

Original Question:

Okay.. fun question. I'm trying to jumpstart a V210 with Solaris 9
12/03 and the SUNWmdr and SUNWmdu packages are not installing. They
give this funky error:

Installation of <SUNWmdr> failed (internal error).
No changes were made to the system.
pkgadd: ERROR: exec of /sbin/sh failed, errno=13
pkgadd: ERROR: checkinstall script did not complete successfully

Installation of <SUNWmdu> failed (internal error).
No changes were made to the system.
3676 blocks

Is this a problem with the checkinstall script? Anyone run into this?

Thanks to Stan Pietkiewicz and Tim Chipman for lending their experience to
this issue.

Here's the issue:

any idea what's going on? I've read a couple of snippets about problems with
ACPI and >Solaris 9 x86 but I'm not sure how to resolve the problem.

Stan suggested that HostRaid might need to be disabled as it only works for
Windows environments. This MB actually doesn't come with Host RAID enabled.
You have to download a SCSI BIOS update to enable its functionality.

Tim mentioned he had this problem with Solaris 8 x86. He pointed me to a
summary he had posted here:

http://dbforums.com/arch/187/2002/11/578527

I disabled the BIOS setting for ACPI but still had the timeouts show up.

I went through the Motherboards setup program and found 2 settings in the
chipset's ICH3 South Bridge Configuration. There is an IOAPIC and Extended
IOAPIC setting. Once these were disabled the timeouts stopped and the disks
were recognized.

Well, I ended up answering my own question.  It took a few minutes digging
into the OBP Reference Manual and - shall we say - "experimenting".
It turns out that just by referencing the device name with the
":rWWWWxHHHHxRR" suffix, that mode will be set.  Ultimately, entering:

" /SUNW,ffb at 1d,0:r1600x1200x75" select-dev

at the OK prompt got me exactly the results I wanted.  All I have to do now is
add that line (exactly as it appears - the quotes and space are significant)
to my nvramrc, and I have a permanent config, just the way I want it!

Hopefully this will save someone else the hassle some day.

 Instructions how to achieve the above are located at

   http://sunsolve.sun.com/pub-cgi/retrieve.pl?doc=fsrdb%2F50566
   http://www.docbert.org/Solaris/Jumpstart/Sol9/Sol9EA-iso.html
   http://bolthole.com/solaris/mount-cdrom.html

 The description at docbert seems to be based on the sunsolve docs.

 The docbert/sunsolve isntructions worked for me, but not the ones from
 bolthole (mount complaining that the s1 image is not a ufs filesystem;
 and indeed, the offsets are different). That said, I didn't attempt to
 use the scanufs method.

Subject: SUMMARY: A1000 breaking mirrors and mounting
Message-ID: <Pine.GSO.4.58.0312171314020.18484@westnet>

Many thanks to Kris Briscoe <krisb at tti-telecom.com>, the only one who
responded (except for the usual vacation messages).  We went back and
forth a few times, but I couldn't get the filesystem to come up clean
after breaking the mirror and re-creating the LUN to be able to mount the
single disk.

It turns out we're not going to do things this way, so I don't need the
info.

-Adam

Original question:

Quick question (I hope):

We've got an E250 connected to an A1000 array.  We've got a mirrored pair
of drives on the A1000.  I'd like to be able to break the mirror and mount
the secondary drive elsewhere.  We don't want to use DiskSuite for this.
Is this possible?  I've been playing with raidutil and drivutil.  I can
easily fail the drive, but I'm not sure how to mount it after that.  If I
delete the LUN and create a LUN with just the secondary, the data gets
clobbered because the drive gets re-labelled.

This is all under Solaris 8 with Raid Manager 6.22, if that helps.

Thanks,
-Adam

Hi,

Cause of the problem is CPU3 is having issue on command for ecache to be
copied to CPU0.

Another problem highlighted was the patches of OS need to be patch to
release -27.

Subject: E420R Reboot - Uncorrectable Memory Error

Hi,
One of our systems crahsed/rebooted today and I just wanted to make sure i
am heading in the right direction. This is the first time this has happened
in our environment.

Some suggestions in the WWW actually mentioned this could be problem in the
CPU, but i just wanted to post the info here to see if anyone had any
addidtional information on what i can do to track or perhaps fix this
problem.

Is this CPU or a Memory Problem ?? Maybe both ?

Below is the /var/adm/messages:

Subject: SUMMARY: Configuring bge.conf
Message-ID: <3FE31634.5080702@asml.nl>

Hi,

My original question

----8<----

The bge inferface (V210) can be forced to a certain speed and duplex
via two methodes: ndd and bge.conf

NDD       Creating a script in /etc/rc2.d/S68net_tune
            #!/sbin/sh
            # /etc/rc2.d/S68net-tune
            PATH=/usr/bin:/usr/sbin
            # Force bge0 to 100fdx autoneg off
            ndd -set /dev/bge0 adv_1000fdx_cap 0
            ndd -set /dev/bge0 adv_1000hdx_cap 0
            ndd -set /dev/bge0 adv_100fdx_cap 1
            ndd -set /dev/bge0 adv_100hdx_cap 0
            ndd -set /dev/bge0 adv_10fdx_cap 0
            ndd -set /dev/bge0 adv_10hdx_cap 0
            ndd -set /dev/bge0 adv_autoneg_cap 0

bge.conf  Adding the following line to the file
            /platform/sun4u/kernel/drv/bge.conf

            adv_autoneg_cap=0 adv_1000fdx_cap=0 adv_1000hdx_cap=0 \
            adv_100fdx_cap=1 adv_100hdx_cap=0 adv_10fdx_cap=0 \
            adv_10hdx_cap=0;

However, using bge.conf will force all instances of bge to the
speed/duplex specified in the file.

My question:

Is it possible to do this per instance within the bge.conf file
or can it only be done via NDD?

I know it is possible for ce instances within the file
/platform/sun4u/kernel/drv/ce.conf file using three
parameters: name, parent, and unit-address.

name="pci108e,abba" parent="/pci at 21c,700000/pci at 1" unit-address="0" \
adv_autoneg_cap=0 adv_1000fdx_cap=0 adv_1000hdx_cap=0 \
adv_100fdx_cap=1 adv_100hdx_cap=0 adv_100T4_cap=0 adv_10fdx_cap=0 \
adv_10hdx_cap=0;

I will summarize.

----8<----

The summary:

A Sun enigneer came back with the following.

It is possible, and the syntax is very similar. Search /etc/path_to_inst
on your system for some of the magic numbers; on mine they were:

     $ grep bge /etc/path_to_inst
     "/pci at 1f,700000/network at 2" 0 "bge"
     "/pci at 1f,700000/network at 2,1" 1 "bge"
     "/pci at 1d,700000/network at 2" 2 "bge"
     "/pci at 1d,700000/network at 2,1" 3 "bge"

 From this, the "parent" value is everything before "/network@" and
the "unit-address" is everything after it. Also, the "name" for bge 
should be either "bge" or "pci108e,1648".

So, the /platform/sun4u/kernel/drv/bge.conf file should be:

    # interface bge0
    name="bge" parent="/pci at 1f,700000" unit-address="2" \
    adv_autoneg_cap=0 adv_1000fdx_cap=0 adv_1000hdx_cap=0 \
    adv_100fdx_cap=1 adv_100hdx_cap=0 adv_100T4_cap=0 adv_10fdx_cap=0 \
    adv_10hdx_cap=0;

    # interface bge1
    name="bge" parent="/pci at 1f,700000" unit-address="2,1" \
    adv_autoneg_cap=0 adv_1000fdx_cap=0 adv_1000hdx_cap=0 \
    adv_100fdx_cap=1 adv_100hdx_cap=0 adv_100T4_cap=0 adv_10fdx_cap=0 \
    adv_10hdx_cap=0;

    # interface bge2
    name="bge" parent="/pci at 1d,700000" unit-address="2" \
    adv_autoneg_cap=0 adv_1000fdx_cap=0 adv_1000hdx_cap=0 \
    adv_100fdx_cap=1 adv_100hdx_cap=0 adv_100T4_cap=0 adv_10fdx_cap=0 \
    adv_10hdx_cap=0;

    # interface bge3
    name="bge" parent="/pci at 1d,700000" unit-address="2,1" \
    adv_autoneg_cap=0 adv_1000fdx_cap=0 adv_1000hdx_cap=0 \
    adv_100fdx_cap=1 adv_100hdx_cap=0 adv_100T4_cap=0 adv_10fdx_cap=0 \
    adv_10hdx_cap=0;

Mark

Thanks to everyone for the advice. What it looks like I have to do is:
Shrink the current file system (To make room for VxVM to put it's TOC)
Encapsulate the disk
Blammo, it's done.

That's really simplifying it, but it's great that I got the answers I needed.
Thanks again!

Subject: Solaris 8 disk slice 0 need to import into VxVM.

OK, this is a little confusing.
Due to a lack of understanding of VxVM, I created a VxFS filesystem on slice
0 of the logical disk on my Storedge 3510. I would like to now import this
slice into a disk group in VxVM so that I may grow the filesystem if
necessary and span it across multiple LUNS (I may soon need to add a drive to
my Logical Drive on the Storedge). Currently, my mount output looks like
this:

I'd like to bring c2t40d0s0 into a disk group so that I can work with it.
c2t40d0 looks like this:

Total disk cylinders available: 35424 + 2 (reserved cylinders)

  7 unassigned    wm       0                0         (0/0/0)             0

So as it stands, I cannot span multiple LUNs with the filesystem on
c2t40d0s0, and I am not extremely knowledgeable with VxVM (Had to put this up
quick for a large Oracle conversion project). Any assistance would be greatly
appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Message-ID: <20031223113933.GA17008@zoe.mcc.ac.uk>

The cause of the problems has been tracked down to a failure of
network autonegotiation between the netras and the cisco switch.
The netras decided they had 100MHz full duplex, the switch decided 10MHz
half duplex.

Why autonegotiation worked OK for months and still works for 7 out of 10
identical netra clients is still a mystery.

The solution would appear to force 100MHz full duplex on the netras and the
switch.  Now all I need do is track down the person who initially set up the
switch and so kindly set a password which I now need to force the settings :-)

Thanks for the replies

Thanks to Peter, Ric & Taric.

The SYBIOS Logic Ultra2 HVD SCSI card [SYM88202] is not compatable with my
Sun DiskPack. I sourced a Singled Ended [SE] card [SYM88201] and that worked
OK.

Hi

The V480 is a V480R, the R stands for rack mountable unit.

Message-ID: <A951E0B63E29C4499E897EEE23FD9368A80DD6@rocms02003.nam.corp.heidelberg.com>

First of all I hope that everyone has a safe and happy holiday. By the
responses it is obvious tat many people are off.

Thanks to those that answered me with some great suggestions.

THE FIX: I updated the ALOM firmware from 1.0 to 1.2 and this fixed the wrench
light situation.

Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"

I have 5 new V240 machines that I am using Solaris 9 via the ALOM Ethernet
port. If the machine is rebooted the wrench light on the front panel comes
on.
I can get rid of it by logging into the ALOM and doing a resetsc. But the
next
time it reboots ( regular schedule ) it comes on again. I see there is a
patch
number 110460-32 for a similar problem under Solaris 8 but nothing seems to
be
mentioned about Solaris 9. The ALOM version is 1.0.

Has anyone had a similar problem and come up with a solution?

Thanks to Gary Chambers/Gabor Csillo/ and Peter Kunst. 

It appears you have to change the scsi initiator for the second host.

Did you remember to change the SCSI initiator ID on one of the hosts?
If you need the specific steps to do it, let me know...

Hello,

Thanks for all the responses, and my apologies for sending the
summary so late.

Turning diag-level up causes the 420 to perform a memory test,
but unfortunately it still has not found the problem. We still
get intermittent RAM errors and crashing on the machine.

I will send a seperate email which contains details.

Thanks,
Rob
