With the Solaris 8 Update 3 release, Sun has replaced its AdminTool and AdminSuite tools with a single, powerful suite of GUI-based system administration tools: the Solaris(r) Management Console 2.0. These new tools can make system administrators dramatically more efficient -- but they come without significant printed documentation. In this book, world-recognized Solaris administration expert Janice Winsor covers virtually every aspect of using these tools, offering expert guidance for maximizing your productivity as a Solaris sysadmin in any environment. Winsor covers every aspect of system administration that has been brought together by these tools, including: booting and halting systems; user administration and disk quotas; permissions; shells; controlling the file system; configuring swap space; administering packages and patches; LAN and Internet connectivity; PPP and DNS; NIS, serial and SCSI connections; RPC, NFS, DFS, AUTOFS, kernel administration, mail system management, and backup/restore. Winsor also shows how to work with the built-in SMC Editor -- and use it to centralize system administration onto a single network server, for maximum efficiency.Originally presented in the PTG 3/2002 Catalog as 0-13-061762-8.
