  • An update on the Sun Blade 150

    October 15, 2007

    Well, I finally got around to finishing doing all the installs and setup on the Blade 150 I had laying around. In the end, since it only had 1gb of RAM and only 1 600 Mhz UltraSPARC II processor, I decided to go with FreeBSD instead of Solaris. Initially, Solaris worked great serving up a […]

  • Sun rebrands itself as Java…

    August 27, 2007

    …at least, that’s what Jonathan makes it sound like in his post here. Looks like Sun is going to be changing its stock symbol from SUNW to JAVA in an effort to appeal to people who don’t know what “SUN” is about, but have heard about “Java” in all their daily use. While I agree […]

  • Enabling IPv6 on Cisco 3750 and Solaris/Linux/Windows

    July 30, 2007

    Alright, lately one of my goals for this quarter is to get our lab working over IPv6 in addition to IPv4 for testing some of our software. Here’s a quick rundown on how to enable ipv6 on *most* cisco switches and Solaris, Linux and Windows. Enable IPv6 on *most* Cisco switches (I used a 3750): […]

  • Recent home project: ZFS NAS server

    July 2, 2007

    I apologize for not posting for the last week, it was a very hectic week for myself because of a certain request for a Solaris 9 machine with tape that took the greater part of a week to get working properly. All I have to say about that is that I much prefer Solaris 10 […]

  • Submission: Ralf’s updated zfs backup script (with tutorial!)

    June 20, 2007

    The following comes to you from Ralf Ramge, who has graciously allowed me to post his script and all the instructions below: “I have a small update. I’ve made the number of backups of each filesystem easier to handle by replacing the hardcoded number with a variable. I also added some comments so everybody should […]

  • First suggestion for Project Indiana

    June 14, 2007

    Okay, so almost everyone has heard about Project Indiana right? The one where SUN tries to make Solaris like Linux so they can compete in more areas and get all the wonderful features of Solaris on more platforms. Well, I have a suggestion for you: Don’t use Java for your installer. Yea, sure, it’s fine […]

  • Frustrating: Kernel panics

    June 8, 2007

    Alright, so for the last 3 days or so, my main Solaris machine has been going crazy and kernel panicing about once every day or so, which is extremely annoying because every time it panics the machine reboots (and this machine has 3 zones that are in current use, so I get 3 calls about […]

  • Submission: local/remote zfs snapshot script

    June 6, 2007

    Here’s a nifty little submission from Ralf Ramge. It will do a ZFS snapshot backup to a local directory, a remote machine and also clone and promote the filesystem on the remote machine. It keeps the last 7 backups around. Take a look: #!/bin/bash # backup_zfssnap.sh, (c) 2007 ralf [dot] ramge [at] webde [dot] de […]

  • Ian Murdock at OpenSolaris users group

    June 5, 2007

    So I read quite a few Solaris blogs and when this popped up this morning I decide to take a look (warning, the movie that the post links to is >500 megs) I had expected to hear a pretty good discussion around the “linuxification” of Solaris and how Ian Murdock plans to approach it, turns […]

  • Not-as-simple perl script for ZFS snapshot auditing

    June 5, 2007

    Hi everyone, I’m back again with another perl script to hopefully be useful to a few of you. Firstly, the script: http://lee.hinmanphoto.com/files/zdiff.txt (formatting long scripts in wordpress’ crazy editor is a very long and arduous process, thus I’m just linking to the script in this case, if anyone knows of a better place to stick […]
