Solaris 11

Solaris 11

What is Solaris? Solaris is a Unix operating system originally developed by Sun Microsystems. It superseded their earlier SunOS in 1993. Oracle Solaris, as it is now known, has been owned by Oracle Corporation since Oracle's acquisition of Sun in January 2010.  Solaris is known for its scalability, especially on SPARC systems, and for originating many innovative features such as DTrace, ZFS and Time Slider. Solaris supports SPARC-based and x86-based workstations and servers from Sun and other vendors, with efforts underway to port to additional platforms. Solaris is registered as compliant with the Single Unix Specification. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solaris_%28operating_system%29

Solaris 11 was released in Nov 2011 and is refeed to as Solaris 11 11/11. 

Watch the launch: Solaris 11 launch video: http://www.oracle.com/us/corporate/events/solaris11launch/index.html

Business justification: why move to Solaris 11

What are the compelling reasons to move or upgrade to Solaris 11? What does a CTO want from an Operating System (OS)? The OS must be safe, secure, easy to upgrade, have lots of application support, clear roadmap, easy to manage, fast, good and cheap. Does Solaris 11 offer these features?

  • Return on Investment → power aware dispatcher & other power management improvements will decrease your power bill.
  • Zones → Virtualization: reduce footprint. Exclusive IP, Read Only Zone Root.
  • Image Packaging System → IPS: Improved software delivery system.
  • OS Installation → modernized automated installation, live CD.
  • Security → Solaris has a proper authorization delegation model. Crypto optimizations. Guidelines.
  • The Desktop front end → Gnome: much richer and easier to use than Solaris 10.
  • Network Automatic → Automatically detect changes in network connectivity and availability and reconfigure networking to stay connected.
  • Socket Enhancements → A non-stream architecture. This improves performance and simplifies the developer interface for adding new socket types. See what is new.
  • Link Protection → To grant exclusive access of a physical link or a virtual network interface cards (vnic) to a guest virtual machine (VM). See security.
  • Bridging → Connect together separate L2 subnetworks, allowing communication between attached nodes as if only a single subnetwork were in use.

  • Load Balancing → Solaris now includes an integrated L3/L4 load balancer.
  • IP Tunneling → IP interfaces can be plumbed and managed through `dladm`

ZFS Storage Appliance

What is the ZFS Storage Appliance?

The ZFS appliance is a system with storage and Solaris 11 operating environment. So what? This appliance is capable of delivering all sorts of standards such as iscsi, cifs, nfs and more. This product was called the Sun Storage 7000.

Here is the main page: http://www.oracle.com/us/products/servers-storage/storage/unified-storage/index.html


ZFS Storage Appliance little FAQ

This FAQ is a compilation of a lot of other clever people's work. I use this mainly as an index to find information quickly.

Q. What is ZFS

ZFS is an acronym for the Zettabyte File System. ZFS is a 128-bit file system. The "Z" refers to the fact that ZFS can store 256 quadrillion zettabytes (each zettabyte is 2^70 bytes). Check out the ZFS sheets:

Best practices: http://www.solarisinternals.com/wiki/index.php/ZFS_Best_Practices_Guide

Best practice: ZFS and databases: http://www.solarisinternals.com/wiki/index.php/ZFS_for_Databases

 

 


Q. Where can I download the software for the ZFS Storage Appliance?

http://wikis.sun.com/display/FishWorks/Software+Updates

Q. Can I download the software using Oracle's support page?

Yes.  You need to access http://support.oracle.com and at the top tab "Patches & Updates" -> to the right "Product Family (Advanced Search)" -> "Product is" = SUN ZFS Storage Appliance

 Q. Where can I get more information on these type of products?

http://wikis.sun.com/display/FishWorks/About+Unified+Storage+7000+Systems

http://blogs.oracle.com/fishworks/

Q. Where can I find blueprints for the ZFS Storage Appliance?

http://wikis.sun.com/display/BluePrints/Flash-Open+Storage+BluePrints

Q. Backup and Recovery with Oracle using the ZFS Storage Appliance?

Backup and Recovery with Oracle’s Sun ZFS Storage Appliances and Oracle Recovery Manager:  Unceasing data growth is posing a number of challenges for organizations. Not only are storage costs skyrocketing due to the need to store and manage more data, but protecting the enterprise's critical data also is becoming increasingly difficult. Databases are widely deployed and are typically cited as having the most challenging data protection requirements.  The paper is available here:  http://www.oracle.com/dm/offers/fy11/wp-zfsandrman.pdf

Q. What about Disaster Recovery using the ZFS Storage Appliance?

Adding Value to Disaster Recovery with Oracle’s Sun ZFS Storage Appliances:  Oracle Fusion Middleware is the foundation for the Oracle application infrastructure and enables business applications to be created and run efficiently across the enterprise.   Protecting this infrastructure and the related Oracle database instances is critical to the business. The Oracle disaster recovery solution provides business continuity by replicating both the Oracle database and the entire Oracle Fusion Middleware infrastructure to a standby site. It protects the latest business data and maintains service availability during site maintenance events as well as system failures.  The paper is available here: http://www.oracle.com/go/?&Src=7011671&Act=43&pcode=WWMK10035484MPP020

Q. How does the ZFS Storage Appliance perform?

Ubuntu configuration and administration commands

A little frequently asked questions (FAQ) for Ubuntu.[Read More]

Friday Jun 12, 2009

OpenSolaris howto

On my opinion, I do not think Opensolaris is still actively being developed. Oracle is spending its R&D on Solaris 11.

Main page for Oracle Solaris 11:  http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/server-storage/solaris11/overview/index.html

Documentation: Press release: http://www.oracle.com/us/corporate/press/173478

http://blogs.sun.com/observatory/entry/solaris_11_express_is_here

OpenSolaris is still available at http://www.opensolris.org  or http://www.opensolaris.com

Most of the OpenSolaris commands are also valid for Oracle Solaris 11 Express.


Welcome to YAB = Yet another blog. On this page you will find information and utilities to run OpenSolaris on your laptop.


 menu.lst

Jazz up your grub menu and add separator lines to look like this:

/rpool/boot/grub/menu.lst

Edit your /rpool/boot/grub/menu.lst file and add the following:

title -----------------------------
root


Linux zone in OpenSolaris

You can have a Linux environment (Centos/Ubuntu/Redhat) running on your OpenSolaris operating Environment (OE). This Linux enviroment is called a branded zone (or Brandz).

Centos Installation
To install, follow the Brandz installation page at http://www.opensolaris.org/os/community/brandz/install/
Download the Centos 3.7 tar ball from the brandz url.
The installation takes about 15 min and you need approximately 3GB of disk space. The 3GB will also cater for the Linux update (yum update).

Create the zone as root:
locahost# zonecfg -z myzone
create -t SUNWlx
set zonepath=/space/myzone
add net
set address=10.10.10.10/24
set physical=e1000g0
set autoboot=true
end
add attr
set name="audio"
set type=boolean
set value=true
end
commit
exit
localhost:# cd /space/centos
localhost:# zoneadm -z myzone install -d /space/centos/centos37_fs_image.tar.bz2

Boot the new zone: localhost:# zoneadm -z myzone boot
Open a console to the domain: localhost:# zlogin -C myzone

Log into the new zone: localhost:# zlogin myzone

Update /etc/sysconfig/network as follows:
batmanlx:/etc/sysconfig # more network
NETWORKING=yes
HOSTNAME=myzone
NISDOMAIN=mydomain.com
GATEWAY=192.168.0.1

Create /root/.profile and display the path prompt:
PS1=`uname -n`:'$PWD # ';export PS1

set the time and date of the zone:
myzone:# /usr/sbin/timeconfig

Force fsck for myzone on next reboot:
myzone:# touch /forcefsck

System admin:
myzone:# touch /var/log/lastlog
force file system check: myzone:# touch /forcefsck

Update the Centos Operating Environment:
myzone: # yum update

Reboot the centos zone:
# init 6


Solaris zone and DHCP

You can assign a DHCP IP address to your OpenSolaris (or Solaris) zone by manually "upping" the interface as dhcp, like this:

localhost:# ifconfig e1000g0:1 dhcp &

Where e1000g0:1 is the interface used by your zone. How do I know what interface is used by my zone?

localhost:# ifconfig -a


Skype on OpenSolaris Skype for Solaris

Thanks to Gilles Gravier for the hard work.

You can run Skype on OpenSolaris but with a little work and a lot of disk space. Since Skype is not ready for OpenSolaris, you can run Skype in a branded zone inside OpenSolaris as explain before on this blog.

Here is how:

You must have Centos 3.8 (Redhat) installed on Branded zone as per http://www.opensolaris.org/os/community/brandz/install/

Before installing Skype, you need the ALSA libraries:
log into your centos zone: zlogin -z myzone


  • Remember to make /dev/dsp read-writeable by you sudo chown YourUser /dev/dsp /dev/mixer
  • Install the latest Static binary tar.bz2 with Qt compiled in from this server.


  • Untar the file and run the binary within


Next install Skype. The following version works great for me: skype_staticQT-1.3.0.53-generic.tar.bz2
myzone:# cd /apps
myzone:/apps# bunzip skype_staticQT-1.3.0.53-generic.tar.bz2
myzone:/apps# tar xvf skype_staticQT-1.3.0.53-generic.tar
Start skype: /apps/skype-1.3.0.53/skype


Create a launcher to automate the IP address for DHCP and start skype:
localhost:# more /usr/local/bin/startskype
#!/usr/bin/bash
# To start Skype from Branded Zone
#
# By default the branded zone will plumb the interface e1000g0:1 with the IP Address of 192.168.0.1 which is
# a static IP addres. I wish to change this to a DHCP IP Address
# Prerequisites:
#    a) Must be able to ssh as root to the zone called myzone
#    b) Make sure the zone (myzone) is booted. This is set up with zonecfg autoboot=true
#        /usr/sbin/zoneadm -z myzone boot
#    c) Assign a DHCP IP Address to make sure the zone (myzone) is booted.
/usr/bin/pfexec /usr/sbin/ifconfig e1000g0:1 dhcp &
echo "Waiting for DHCP .... 15 seconds to make sure e1000g0:1 has enough time to get a DHCP address ..."
/usr/bin/sleep 15
echo "Acquiring myzone IP Address"
ZONEIP=$(/sbin/ifconfig e1000g0:1 | awk '/inet/ { print $2 } ' | sed -e s/addr://)
echo "myzone IP Address is set to $ZONEIP"
echo "Press Ctlr+C to break or Enter to continue"
read answer
echo "Starting Skype"
/usr/bin/ssh -l root -X $ZONEIP /apps/skype-1.3.0.53/skype

\*\* If all else fails, use https://imo.im



Arial fonts on OpenSolaris

You can add Arial fonts to your Operating Environment. Download the Arial fonts here. To install the fonts:

# cd /space
#gzcat Arial-fonts.tar.Z|tar xvf
#cp -i \* /usr/openwin/lib/X11/fonts
Update the fonts cache:
# fc-cache

Where is /usr/ucb/?

The /usr/usb packages are no longer available for OpenSolaris. You can download the SUNWscpu packages here.

Solaris System Administration

Webmin

Webmin is a Web-based administration tool.
Get the tool from Sol10 Companion CD.

To setup and configure webmin on Solaris 10:
As root do
/usr/sfw/lib/webmin/setup.sh
Use default port: 10000
Use ssh=yes
Point web browser to http://your-system-name:10000


For OpenSolaris
Install the software: pfexec pkg install SUNwebmin
enable the service:  pfexec svcadm enable webmin
Make sure the service is started: pfexec svcs -a|grep webmin

Configure Webmin:
/usr/bin/webminsetup
Use ssl and use root as the default user. Use the default port 10000 if not already used by another application.

On OpenSolaris you will not be able to access webmin as the root user.
To fix, change root account "from a roll to normal" using:
pfexec rolemod -K type=normal root

Access webmin:
https://localhost:10000
