Configuring Oracle Solaris 10
 
Installation
During installation, provide the fully qualified domaine name e.g.,
solaris10.example.local
and choose Name Service,
DNS
 
Post-installation
Enter a decent shell,
#ksh
#set -o emacs
bash
 
Disable the desktop user interface,
/usr/dt/bin/dtconfig -d
/etc/init.d/dtlogin stop
Note. To enable it back,
#/usr/dt/bin/dtconfig -e
#/etc/init.d/dtlogin stop
 
Fix the network configuration,
cd /etc/
vi hosts
vi resolv.conf
cp nsswitch.conf nsswitch.conf.dist
vi nsswitch.conf (add 'dns' for the hosts and ipnodes entries)
 
Enable SSH (and eventually root login),
#cd /etc/ssh/
#cp sshd_config sshd_config.dist
#vi sshd_config (permitrootlogin yes)
cd ~/
svcadm enable svc:/network/ssh:default
svcadm restart svc:/network/ssh:default
 
You should be able to connect to the host remotely.
 
Eventually change the default shell to Bash,
cd /etc/
vi passwd (root...:/usr/bin/bash)
 
Administrating the zones
Verify that you are currently running a global zone (by default on Solaris 10 and over),
zoneadm list -v
 
Create a (whole root -- no sparse) zone,
ifconfig -a (check on which interface you may build an alias upon)
mkdir -p /data/zones/zone1/
cd /data/zones/zone1/
chmod 700 /data/zones/zone1/
zonecfg -z zone1
then,
create
set zonepath=/data/zones/zone1
set autoboot=true
#add inherit-pkg-dir
#set dir=/opt/csw
#end
add net
set physical=xnf0 
set address=x.x.x.x 
set defrouter=x.x.x.x 
end
info
verify
commit
^D
note. Only share /opt/csw/ if it exists and if you've got software in it.
check that the zone now exists and install the system binaries in it,
zoneadm list -cv
zoneadm -z zone1 install
 
Start the newly created zone and see the interface alias it creates,
zoneadm -z zone1 boot
ifconfig -a
enter its console,
zlogin -C -e [ zone1
(answer the questions to configure the pre-installed system)
