Smile Wannabe Sys Admin


Hi all

I currently work with an application that runs on Solaris 10.

I would like to learn Unix/Solaris to help me in this job and also with a view to getting another job in the same vein later on.

I'm not really sure where to start as I don't really know what can be done with Unix/Solaris.

Any pointers on where to start would be most appreciated.

Thanks

So why don't you get something like OpenSolaris [1] and install it to a virtual or physical machine (get real Solaris hardware e.g. Blade 1000 or SPARCultra for extra Solaris feeling).

Then you should use the great documentation at [2].

Also try other Unix derivates (e.g. FreeBSD) and general Linux distros to see where they are similar and where they are different...

Thanks will have a look at OpenSolaris. Is it much different from Solaris?

There are plenty of free documents on Sun website, e.g. see http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/prod/solaris
