Change Hostname in Solaris 10

Solaris is not is easy to maintain, that from what I experienced up till now +__+. For example if you want to change the name of our computer you have to go through all this stuff, while in Windows you can do it easily :P, but this is the interesting part, you have to try it!!

Change the name in /etc/nodename

Inside here just replace the old name with the name that you wanted

Change the name in /etc/hostname.interface

Inside here just replace the old name with the name that you wanted

Change the name in /etc/hosts localhost new_hostname loghost

After this you can type

hostname new_hostname

After that you can try to reboot and check by ping to your new hostname.

Configure Solaris Container (Zoning) in Solaris 10

Solaris Container is a virtualization technology that come from SUN, from my experience you can only make virtualization for Solaris I don’t know if for another OS. We usually call it with SUN Zone CMIIW. With this container we can manage resource for application and services, another virtualization can do it too, I think…

The bottom line is that my experience with Solaris Container is to deploy some application (Web Application) inside those container in one server, like SUN T5220, so later this server “seems” to have so many OS, each with its own IP address, file, processor, and another resources.

In my case I’m using T5220 which has 64 thread that is equal having 64 CPU, and my application need at least 4 CPU. This would make one T5220 can have around 16 application with their own separated environment (not completely). Because if the server is being shut down, the container is shut down too. But when the server is up we can easily boot, reboot the container. If you want to have the real virtualization, I mean when the server is broken but you don’t want your container broken you have to use SUN Fire E25K server, it will cost you around 1 up to 4 million US dollars 😛 Continue reading
