Glenn thanks for the pointer to the test. Do you know of any good books/pdf's to use for studying for the test? I have read most of all the Solaris 10 Adminstration books for the new features, and was wondering if there is a book that is just for Security in addition to the Security Services book on docs.sun.com. jason

Jason,

On the Beta Program web site there is a link to a list of course objectives that will be helpful in studying for the exam. On that page, there is a list of suggested resources that certainly you should include in your studies. The "Security Services" book and the Sun BluePrints articles are certainly a good place to start.

As you can see from those pages, you will need to have a strong understanding (at an administrative level) of the core security capabilities found in Solaris 10 (including those that were inherited from earlier versions of the OS.) By "administrative level", I mean that you should know what a given capability is, why it is important, how it is installed and configured, and how to troubleshoot typical problems with it. Basically, you will need to know how to perform tasks commonly associated with a Solaris security administrator job role.

I hope that this helps! Best of luck to you!

Glenn
