Moderator, I apologize for this. But by this it would be helpful for other newbies to log to LQ and get the required info easily.

Thanks LQ for helping me and others while solving queries :) !!

Senior's please provide the solutions for each query. Thanks!

One quick update.
The solution should be for general hardware platform. No SPARC!

For SPARC, Please provide the info in a seperate thread.

If you think the punch line should be for Intel, please change the same. Thanks.

I don't get exactly what is your goal with that much duplicated questions.

By "general hardware platform" do you mean "generic hardware platform" and assume that means x86 ?

How do you expect a command to be entered in a turned-off machine ?

In any case, with OpenSolaris on x86, suspend to ram works if the drivers are supported. I don't think suspend to RAM has been back-ported to Solaris 10.

SPARC supports suspend to disk. There is a special key on the keyboard to do it.

See Comment#1, I have explained it.
There is not as such good and perfect information available on the internet for the queries I asked.
So, pple who are searching for the solution for the same, can log in to LQ easily. I guess, the question asked by me can be easily tracked down by googling now.

> By "general hardware platform" do you mean "generic hardware platform" and assume that means x86 ?
yep.

> How do you expect a command to be entered in a turned-off machine ?
I think you didn't understood what I am asking.
There should be some commands in Solaris that can suspend it and at the same time one can run a script for resuming it from the suspended state.

> In any case, with OpenSolaris on x86, suspend to ram works if the drivers are supported. I don't think suspend to RAM has been back-ported to Solaris 10.

Is this is a solution?

I am aware of this.

hmmmm..
So, As per you if the drivers are not supported, options won't work...
Thats really bad!
There should be some proxy way to handle this one.
Thanks for your time Sir,

Vishwas

I'm afraid that still doesn't make much sense.
Google is good enough to find pages relevant to a query and there no much point fooling search engines with a question.

And on top of what operating system would that script be running ??

What do you mean ? A solution to what ?

Sure. Running Solaris 10 on top a virtualization layer.

Thanks for the replies jlliagre.

If I have a Solaris 10 VM.
How can I suspend and resume it from inside?

* Please note: The question is to suspend/resume the Solaris VM.
I don't want to suspend it from the UI part.

The quick answer might be: it depends on the virtualization layer you'll use to virtualize your Solaris 10 instances. You should assess your case and make a choice. Then, you'll got a clearly defined question and an answer.

Resuming a suspended OS from inside doesn't make sense.
Virtualized or not, a suspended OS can only be awaken from the outside, i.e. by turning on the virtual or real underlying hardware.
