Oracle® Solaris 11 System Administration covers every skill required to effectively install and administer the Oracle® Solaris 11.1 operating system in production environments. It features dozens of step-bystep “learn by example” procedures, demonstrating how to apply complex solutions in real-world data center environments.


Author Bill Calkins has administered and taught Oracle Solaris and its predecessors for more than twenty years. He also helped develop the newest Oracle Certified Associate (OCA) and Oracle Certified Professional (OCP) exams, which raise the bar for Solaris certification. This guide covers every new 1Z0-821 exam topic in detail and also covers many 1Z0-822 exam topics.


Calkins also reviews the changes that system administrators will face when upgrading to Solaris 11.1 and presents new ways to perform familiar tasks on both SPARC and x86 hardware. You’ll learn how to

  • Install the Solaris 11 Operating Environment with Live Media or Text Interactive installers
  • Install, manage, and update software with the Image Packaging System and IPS repositories
  • Understand, customize, and troubleshoot SPARC and x86 boot processes from system power-up to loading the OS (including coverage of ILOM, OpenBoot, and GRUB 2)
  • Administer and create services through the service management facility (SMF)
  • Configure system messaging using SMF notifications, syslog and rsyslog
  • Configure and administer ZFS storage pools, including ZFS on the boot drive, local disks, LUNs, and a SAN
  • Configure and manage ZFS file systems: encryption, redundancy, snapshots, clones, network sharing, monitoring, device replacement, and legacy UFS migration
  • Create, migrate, contain, and administer zones, including solaris10 branded and immutable zones
  • Use RBAC to create custom rights profiles and grant special privileges
  • Manage and monitor system process scheduler (including FSS process schedulers and proc tools)
  • Configure Solaris networking and network services, including Reactive and Fixed Network Configurations, VNICs, and Virtual Networking

Author Bill Calkins

Summary - This is a very good System Administration guide for use by those new to Solaris. It does assume some knowledge and experience with Unix or Linux systems in general. I recommend this book for anyone actively using Solaris 11 and not only for those charged with Administering it. Ordinary users of Solaris 11 can benefit by knowing more about what is going on behind the scenes while System Administrators will have a handy guide and text as study preparations for the Solaris Certification exams.

Review - This book is intended as a fairly comprehensive introduction to System Administration of the Oracle Solars 11 Operating Environment(OE). Calkins is quite experienced with the subject matter and has taught the material for several years and participated in the development of the Solaris Certification examinations. The book reflects this in a no nonsense approach that is concise and to the point. It is densely written and the tone is quite matter of fact. At 690 pages this volume is a handy desktop guide the Solaris 11 OE. It is also quite useful for developers or those managing their own desktop versions of this OE.

The book begins with preparations for installation and then goes directly into the details of installing the OE using both the text mode and interactive live installer on both X86 and SPARC systems. Use of the Automated Installer is not covered. Subsequent chapters introduce managing and updating software using the Solaris IPS. IPS is a package management system as one would expect to find in a modern Unix or Linux operating system. Several features of IPS that deserve some mention are the Distribution Constructor and the Incorporation feature. Both of these are noted as appropriate for larger Enterprise level multiple installation situations.

Calkins includes a chapter on booting the two different architectures in sufficient detail as to cover most situations. He also goes into the system logging aspects as a starting point for troubleshooting issues. This chapter also includes enough information regarding the System Management Facility(SMF) to get started using it. SMF is the Solaris utility that replaces the older Unix style init scripts. This is not overly comprehensive and only includes some basics of creating the SMF manifests. SMF is definitely an improvment over init scripts but as wth most things this comes at a price. Many hours of study time can be saved here in this section alone. SMF represents a better and more carefully engineered way to manage the systems processes.

Follow on chapters describe in sufficient detail the Administration of Storage devices and chapter 5 is a good introduction to the Zettabyte File System ZFS. ZFS represents one of the most compelling arguments for utilizing Solaris. This chapter alone is about 100 pages of very detailed information and is invaluable for anyone that needs to deal with ZFS. Oracle has several volumes of guides on ZFS for more detailed information but this guide is sufficient as a detailed introduction.

Chapter 6 describes the administration of Solaris Zones which is the preferred virtualization environment for Solaris 11. Other reviewers have noted the lack of coverage in this book on VirtualBox. Chapter 7 covers User and Security Administration. Again the security aspects of Solaris 11 make a compelling argument for the OE. The remaining 3 chapters include Managing System Processes, the Solaris 11 Network Environment and Network File Systems.

Conclusion - Having used and Administered Solaris 11 on both SPARC and X86 machines I can fully appreciate the effort that has been put into this book and the detail that is so readily apparent. The information is presented in a very methodical and straightforward manner that reflects Calkins' experience teaching the subject matter for many years.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Outstanding and essential! 29. März 2014
Von Robert M. Koretsky - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
From the perspective of presenting a top-down, very contemporary, articulate, complete, and thoroughly well-produced book, this reference gives you a handy all-in-one guide to system administration on Oracle Solaris 11.1. All the major and important system administration activities and procedures, as well as some minor facts which might seem trivial at first, but are actually very important, are covered in a clear and cogent way. If you had to wade through the huge volume of documentation provided by Oracle that comes with the software ( or use your Google-Fu), just to find out the details of some small fact or technique, you would realize how powerful this book really is. It will make your life with Solaris easier, like it did mine.

Just a few examples: there is a section on dealing with removable media such as USB devices, drives, thumb drives. There is excellent coverage of Secure Shell, how to start it up, manage it, etc.. Those are practical and contemporary subjects that a modern UNIX System Administration book must cover. Also, there is extensive coverage of how to add packages to your base system via the command line, which is a very critical, practical System Administration topic!

A tremendous added benefit- ZFS is covered and explained completely and beautifully!

Even if this book cost 3 times what Amazon is charging, you must have it.

UNIX: The Textbook

Edited 4/7/14- A big benefit of using Solaris 11.1 instead of OpenIndiana (May the Computer Gods forgive me for espousing a commercial system over a freeware system) is that the IPS GUI Package Manager on Solaris 11.1 has access to more packages that actually can be installed on your system. Even though the author recommends and heavily illustrates using a command line version of the IPS Package Manager, I found that with the default Gnome desktop GUI and IPS GUI, I could download and install Python 2.7.3 with Tkinter built into it from the Solaris repository in a couple of easy steps. Very similar to using the command line pkg package management system in PC-BSD or FreeBSD to get new packages from the FreeBSD Repository.

Edited 10/15/14- I'm into virtualization now, and it seems the common shortcoming of documentation on zones (this book included) is that no one tells you how to log into the zone from the Internet using ssh, FTP, or telnet, or how to actually install an application in the zone! For example, what IP address do you use to ssh into a zone running on a Solaris 11.2 machine, from somewhere on your LAN or the Internet? And as far as installing an application, I don't mean a full web server stack, just some simple app that you don't trust and want to put in a zone to test. This book shows you how to create and administrate zones (it is an administration book after all), but not how to actually use them in some simple cases! After all, it does do that with zfs. I'm hoping that the authors' advanced book will do that. is a web page at Oracle that has an excellent intro to zones, and shows in a few easy steps how to add apache-22 to a zone! Bravo! And the Oracle web page also adds the zone to rpool on the vdev that Solaris boots from- Dr. Calkins in his zone intro creates a new zpool on another hard disk for the zone. I don't quite get the rational for that.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good introduction 14. Juli 2013
Von any-user - Veröffentlicht auf
I have bought this book to get a more structured introduction to Solaris administration (compared to the "read man pages on demand" approach). The first chapter may be a little scary because the author presents a few commands without further explanation, such as prtconf, and svcs. The images above those commands show screenshots of the installation process, i.e., are totally unrelated. Without my prior knowledge of Solaris 10 (and some hours of playing with Solaris 11), I would definitely be worried about the chapters that follow.

The organisation of the content is IMHO not optimal - at least in some cases. "Advanced" topics like Boot Environments (BE) are mentioned in one paragraph and are then used to explain how the package management works. The actual BE topic follows after that. Again, without my previous knowledge, I would have had no idea how it works and what it is good for (for example the BE backup when installing packages).

Despite the negatives mentioned earlier, the explanations are good and easy to follow, especially compared to the Oracle Books, which focus on experienced readers. Important commands and their options are explained with examples, which are easy to reproduce. Furthermore, the examples animate to play with the system - a very important criterion for such a book! I was surprised how much time I can spend with the pkg command without getting bored (package management has been one of the topics I didn't like in previous Solaris versions!)... very positive!

The book contains minor (copy and paste) errors, e.g., in section "Search for a Software Package", it states "Use the pkg search command to... The syntax for the pkg info command is as follows: pkg search ...".

The book covers both SPARC and x86 Solaris, differences in commands/procedures are explained immediately. OpenBoot got enough attention, so that SPARC users can handle their machines, too. Along with man pages and a Solaris installation to play with, this book is quite nice. However, a reader with absolutely no Solaris background, such as Linux users, may find some sections difficult to understand. For me, on the other hand, it fits quite well, and I am happy that I have bought it. Reorder the content and you will get 5 stars from me.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The best Solaris 11.1 system admin book! 20. Februar 2014
Von Gary Guo - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Initially I buy this book for about 100 pages of ZFS of Solaris 11.1. And I love the NFS chapter because it covers both ways of NFS shares in Solaris 11 GA and in Solaris 11.1. Then, I go though a whole book and figure out that this is the best book I can get for Solaris 11.1 system admin.
I buy one copy for each member in the project team. My colleagues love it also.
Strongly recommended! Hope the "advanced one" by the same author will publish soon.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great introduction to Solaris 11 15. August 2013
Von akutabi - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I liked this book. It lays everything out in a progressive manner so that it is easily understood. I would have given it 5 stars had it included something on Oracle VM Manager (which is included in the base install of Solaris 11.1).
