Solaris™ 8 System Administrator's Reference

Book Description

  • Get beyond the man pages!

  • The practical, task-oriented reference to every key Solaris 8 command, from ab2admin to zic

  • System/network administration, file systems, printing, Internet services, editing, shell programming, and more

  • Convenient, comprehensive, and accessible!

The essential resource for every Solaris 8 sysadmin, Web professional, developer, and power user!

If you're a Solaris user, sysadmin, or developer, you know how tough it is to rely on the man pages when you need fast answers. Now, there's a superb alternative: Solaris 8 System Administrator's Reference. In this book, Solaris expert Janice Winsor presents more than 1,300 pages of solid reference information, organized for maximum accessibility and quick problem solving.

Winsor begins with a convenient cross-reference and list of tasks, identifying all the commands you're likely to need in each problem category—so you don't need to know a command's name before you can get information about it. Next, she provides comprehensive descriptions, usage examples, and reference tables for nearly 400 Solaris 8 and Solaris 7 commands, including:

  • Printing

  • File system management

  • System status and administration

  • Editing

  • Networking and Internet services

  • Shell programming, and much more

Say goodbye to the man pages, and say hello to the most authoritative, intelligible, user-friendly, and just plain valuable Solaris reference ever created: Solaris 8 System Administrator's Reference by Janice Winsor.
