Solaris 10 System Administration Part II
In this book you’ll learn Advanced Topics in Solaris 10
System Administration for SPARC and x86-based systems including:
Bill’s original Cert Prep guides were used throughout Sun’s service organization as the SEs studied for Certification. This was not mandated by Sun management but happened through word-of-mouth by those software engineers who had successfully passed the exam. In this new edition, Bill adds a chapter for ZFS. It includes Live Upgrade conversion to a ZFS root filesystem and Zone/ZFS inter-operation. Plus, all chapters have been updated to reflect the Solaris 10 10/08 enhancements. This new guide remains the best source of preparation for the Solaris 10 Cert exam.

Bill Calkins has been training Solaris system administrators for more than 15 years. This book contains the training material that he uses in his basic and advanced Solaris administration courses that, over the years, have helped thousands of Solaris administrators become certified. This is our second edition of the Solaris 10 System Administration Exam Prep. It covers updates that Sun has made to the Solaris 10 operating environment as of the October 2008 release. It began with the Training Guide for Solaris 2.6, 7, 8, and 9 and is now the Exam Prep for Solaris 10. Instructors from universities and training organizations around the world have used the book as courseware in their Solaris administration courses. In addition, administrators from around the world have used this book for self-study when instruction from a Sun training center is either unavailable or not within their budget. Many of you have written with your success stories, suggestions, and comments. Your suggestions are what keep making this guide more valuable.
The Solaris 10 System Administration Exam Prep books, Parts I and II, provide training materials for anyone interested in becoming a Sun Certified System Administrator (SCSA) for Solaris 10. When used as a study guide, these two books will save you a great deal of time and effort searching for information you will need to know when taking the exam. Each book covers the exam objectives in enough detail for inexperienced administrators to learn the objectives and apply the knowledge to real-life scenarios. Experienced readers will find the material in these books complete and concise, making it a valuable study guide for the Sun Certified System Administrator exams.
This book is not a cheat sheet or cram session for the exam; it is a training manual. In other words, it does not merely give answers to the questions you will be asked on the exam. We have made certain that this book addresses the exam objectives in detail, from start to finish. If you are unsure about the objectives on the exams, this book teaches you what you need to know. After reading each chapter, assess your knowledge of the material covered using the review questions at the end of the chapter. When you have completed reading a section, use the practice exam at the end of the book and the ExamGear test engine on the CD-ROM to assess your knowledge of the objectives covered on each exam. This CD-ROM contains sample questions similar to what you are likely to see on the real exams. More sample questions are available at http://www.UnixEd.com, so make sure you visit this site to find additional training and study materials.
How This Book Helps You
This book teaches you advanced topics in administering the Solaris 10 operating system. It offers you a self-guided training course of all the areas covered on the CX-310-202 certification exam by installing, configuring, and administering the Solaris 10 operating environment. You will learn the specific skills that are required to administer a system and, specifically, to pass the second part of the Sun Certified System Administrator exam for Solaris 10 (CX-310-202). If you are an experienced administrator who is upgrading an existing Solaris certification, you’ll find in-depth coverage of the new topics you need to learn for the CX-310-203 upgrade exam in both the SCSA Solaris 10 OS CX-310-200 and CX-310-202 Exam Prep books.
Throughout the book, we provide helpful tips and real-world examples that we have encountered as system administrators. In addition, we provide useful, real-world exercises to help you practice the material you have learned. This book is set up as follows:
Note - ExamGear software For a complete description of the ExamGear test engine, see Appendix A, “What’s on the CD-ROM.”

This book is the second book in a series designed for anyone who has a basic understanding of UNIX and wants to learn more about Solaris system administration. Whether or not you plan to become certified, the Solaris 10 System Administration Exam Prep books, Part I and Part II, are the starting point to becoming a Solaris System Administrator. It’s the same training material that the author uses in his Solaris 10 Intermediate and Advanced System Administration courses. This book covers advanced system administration topics you need to know before you begin administering the Solaris operating system. Our goal is to present the material in an easy-to-follow format, with text that is easy to read and understand. The only prerequisite is that you have read my Solaris 10 System Administration Exam Prep Part I book.
This book is intended for experienced system administrators who want to become certified, update their current Solaris certification, or simply learn about the features of the Solaris 10 operating environment. To pass the CX-310-202 and CX-310-203 certification exams, you need a solid understanding of the fundamentals of administering Solaris 10. This book helps you review the fundamentals required to pass the certification exam.
The Sun Certified System Administrator Exams
To become a Sun Certified System Administrator, you need to pass two exams: CX-310-200 (Part I) and CX-310-202 (Part II). This book covers the material on the Part II exam. You must pass the CX-310-200 exam before taking the CX-310-202 exam. You will not receive a certificate until you have passed both examinations. Also, if you are already certified in Solaris 2.6, 7, 8, or 9, you need to know the material covered in this book as well as in Solaris 10 System Administration Exam Prep: CX-310-200 Part I to take the upgrade exam, CX-310-203, to become certified on Solaris 10.
Beware of fakes. We have seen some websites promoting their own certification programs, so be sure to evaluate them carefully. Certification programs promoted by these sites are not the same as the Sun certification program. You will not receive a certificate from Sun until you pass Sun’s exams from a certified Sun testing center. Go to my website (http://www.UnixEd.com) for links to the real exams and information on Sun’s certification program if you are in doubt. In addition, feel free to visit our online Solaris certification discussion forum at http://www.UnixEd.com, where you can ask me questions directly.
It’s not uncommon for Sun to change the exam objectives or to shift them around after the exams have been published. We highly recommend that before you begin reading this book, you visit my website at http://www.UnixEd.com to get the most up-to-date list of exam objectives, the errata for this book, up-to-date sample exam questions, and any other last-minute notes about these exams. We will provide all the information you need to pass the exam—all you need to do is devote the time. Learning the objectives is the first step; the next step is to practice. You need access to both SPARC and x86/x64-based systems running Solaris 10 so that you can practice what you have learned. Unless you have a supernatural memory, it’s difficult to pass the exams without practice.
In the back of this book is the ExamGear software test CD that will prepare you for the questions you might see on the exam. The CD-ROM-based test engine was designed by educational experts to help you learn as you test. It is a preview of the types of questions to expect on the exams and tests your knowledge of all the exam objectives. If you are weak in any area, the sample questions will help you identify that area so that you can go back to the appropriate chapter and study the topic. Each question on the CD-ROM has a flash card to help you in case you get stuck. This flash card contains brief, concise textbook excerpts that explain why each answer is correct so that you can learn as you test.
Also, for an additional cost, you can purchase more questions for the ExamGear test engine from our website. You’ll receive hundreds of questions that will take you deep into each exam objective. This will give you a comprehensive skills assessment and help you evaluate your readiness and retention of the materials.
