System Administration Guide: Security Services is part of a multivolume set that covers a significant part of
the SolarisTM Operating System (Solaris OS) administration information. This book assumes that you
have already installed a Solaris Express Community Edition release, and you
have set up any networking software that you plan to use. The Solaris
OS is part of the Solaris product family, which includes many features, such
as the Java Desktop 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 OS: Hardware Compatibility Lists 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 OS: Hardware Compatibility Lists.
