Hi, I created a diskset and added some disks containing data and found after that whenever disks are added to disk sets, the slice information is removed and re-generated. To cut short, i lost my partition. Luckily I have prtvtoc copy of the disk. Is there any possibility to recover the partitions and the data? Running with Solaris 9, SVM V880.

Hi, I have a Sun fire V240 (2 CPU's) that has a 3310 disk unit attached.
This server is a NIS and NFS server for the home directories of about 50 users divided over 10 clients (Linux and Solaris).
Once in awhile a user may generate too much data from a certain simulation software (about 5-10 MB/S). If this happens the nfsd goes to a CPU usage of 20%, and the system becomes (too) slow for interactive use.
My question is if there is any way on the server to get the ID of the user that is respo.... read more

Hi I created my_mutex of posixMutex type (basically pthread_mutex_t type) accessed by 2 threads, which execute the same section of code: void run() { my_mutex.lock(); /*calculates sth here*/ my_mutex.unlock(); } It runs perfectly on Linux with arbitrary number of threads, but on Solaris (ver. 8) it prints the following and exits without a core dump when only 2 threads are created.
ERROR -- call to pthread_mutex_lock() -- called on locked mutex Has anybody seen anything like this before? Thanks.

I have a 20 drive SGI Challenge labelled Clariion unit (circa late 90's I think)- each drive is 7200 rpm 18 gig. The chassis is 2 channel diff scsi, I have each channel connected to its own controller in a U80. Thats all working fine.
Not having experience with raid units, I'm trying out various concepts for allocating the drives, but so far I've been unable to find a configuration that will give me better than 10 megabytes/sec throughput. The local drives in the U80 routinely exc.... read more

Hi all I've just been given two working 220Rs. 1Gb ram in each, two 36Gb Scsi HDDs, and a DVD-rom. (which doesn't boot the Solaris 10 installation DVD. I've just found out that the DVD-rom (TOSH) needs a firmware update. Well that was a waste of 2.5Gb download) Anyhow, I just wondered if there was a 2nd-hand market for them. I'd love to keep them, but I've got no room. There's a lot of instances on eBay, but all seem to be Buy Now, so no bid records. I'm in the .... read more

I have received this error on a port listened to by a Squid server. Is this warning issued prior to reaching the point where pending TCP requests would have been dropped? And if that point is reached, would the counter for tcpListenDropQ0 shown in netstat be greater than 0? Mine is at 0. Thanks.

Hoping that some one has already done this and would be able to answer my questions..
I am looking at the live upgrade guide and I understand that I have to create an empty boot environment with -s option before I can install a flash archive on the disk.
Q) What comprises of the empty boot environment? Once an empty BE is set up, we use the luupgrade and -a/-j/-J the three mutually exclusive options. Crossing out -a option I am confused about the -j and -J option usage -J for an entry from.... read more

IPfilter 4 on a Solaris 9 box. ipmon running, can't ssh in.
Makes no sense. Could anyone PLEASE tell me what on earth could possibly be wrong with the ipf.conf below?? This is supposed to just let in ssh on port 22 but I can NEVER get in once I start ipfilter.
Can get in once I stop ipfilter.
The ipf.conf is: block in on bge0 block out on bge0 pass in log on bge0 proto tcp from 10.156.20.10 port = 22 pass in log on bge0 proto tcp from 10.156.20.11 port = 22 pass in log on bge0 proto tcp f.... read more

Greetings, I was recently faced with this question by a user. Lets say if /usr/oracle is limited (group rw other ---) to only the users in the DBA group, then does it matter if a file in that directory allows other rw.
