JET now available on OTN

I know some of you have been waiting patiently, so I'm pleased to announce that the JET bundle is now available for download on the Oracle Technology Network.

I've migrated most of the content from the old Sun wiki site, and got the download in a single handy location on OTN.

Download JET now

The version available is the current latest, which is 4.9.4. This version contains a number of updates, the most significant of which is the ability to specify slot locations instead of the traditional cXtYdZsN nomenclature. This is pretty useful when trying to Jumpstart multiple servers with SAS2.0 based HBAs, as they will have the WWN embedded in the cXtYdZsN name, and it's pretty difficult to guess what that will be until you've booted the server.

The JetSDS and JetZFS modules have also been updated to use the slot terminology.

Happy JETing,

Jumpstarting over multiple subnets

The question of Jumpstart and subnets is always coming up. I've finally documented the issue and the ways of "solving" it on the JET wiki site. As with any problem, there is no single easy answer, but a number of different solutions that can be combined in a number of ways.

FOLLOWUP: Solaris Cluster on a laptop using VirtualBox, iSCSI and a quorum server

A few months ago I wrote  Solaris Cluster on a laptop using VirtualBox, iSCSI and a quorum server, which detailed some of the hoops that I needed to jump through to get it to work. The good news is that the new features in VirtualBox 2.0 (and now 2.1) have gotten rid of 2 of those hoops:

  1.  I no longer need to play with vnics and that crazy script as Host Interface networking simply works out of the box
  2. I don't need to install the 32bit internal only SC package, as VirtualBox now supports 64bit guests.

I'm in the process of rebuilding my laptop cluster making use of the above new features.

 Hurrah!!!

JET 4.6 externally available

As a follow-on to my previous post, JET 4.6 is now available externally. Check the JET wiki which has a link to the download.

This is mainly a bug fix release, and has been given a major number increase because it's the JET version that will be in the next release of xVM OpsCenter. (and we like to release the OpsCenter releases at major version numbers).

In terms of changes, I've fixed a couple of bugs with turning ntp on, and multiple disks in zfs pools for ZFS disks. This version also has tweaks in place to workaround some DHCP issues when installing S10 U6 and Solaris Nevada.

JET 4.4.7 available externally

As a follow-on to my previous post, JET 4.4.7 is now available externally. Check the JET wiki which has a link to the download.

Also have a look at the JET User Guide which has now been posted on the wiki. I expect this to grow over time, but its a conversion from the original user guide with updates for correctness.
