Welcome to System Administration Guide: IP Services for the Solaris Express, Developer
Edition 2/07. This book is part of a nine-volume set that covers a
significant part of the SolarisTM system administration information. This book assumes that
you have already installed the Solaris operating system (Solaris OS). You should be ready
to configure your network or ready to configure any networking software that is
required on your network. The Solaris OS is part of the
Solaris product family, which also includes the Solaris Common Desktop Environment (CDE). Solaris OS
is compliant with AT&T's System V, Release 4 operating system.
Note - This Solaris release supports systems that use the SPARC®
and x86 families of
processor architectures: UltraSPARC®
, SPARC64, AMD64, Pentium, and Xeon EM64T. The supported
systems appear in the Solaris 10 Hardware Compatibility List at https://www.sun.com/bigadmin/hcl. This document cites any implementation differences between
the platform types.
In this document these x86 related terms mean the following:
“x86” refers to the larger family of 64-bit and 32-bit x86 compatible products.
“x64” points out specific 64-bit information about AMD64 or EM64T systems.
“32-bit x86” points out specific 32-bit information about x86 based systems.
For supported systems, see the Solaris 10 Hardware Compatibility List.
