Introducing: The Intro(1CL) Man Page

John Cumming's blog A New Command Set for Solaris Cluster 3.2 provides a great tour of the new object-oriented command line that was introduced in the Sun Cluster 3.2 release. Another aid to understanding this new command set is the Intro(1CL) man page. This man page gives you the following information about the new command set:


  • A description of the structure of the new command set and some shortcuts you can use.
  • A list of all the new command names with their descriptions.
  • A mapping of some of the more commonly used original commands to the new commands. For example, it tells you what new commands you can use instead of scrgadm.
  • A list and explanation of all exit codes used within the new command set.
There is one gotcha: Because the Solaris Intro(1) man page also exists, when you use the man command to display the Sun Cluster Intro(1CL) man page, you have to specify the man-page section number (otherwise, the Intro(1) man page is displayed instead):
% man -s 1CL intro

You can also view Intro(1CL) in the Sun Cluster Refence Manual on docs.sun.com, where it serves as the Introduction.

Take a look at this man page for ways to get the most out of the new command set.
