Friday Tips #14
By Chris Kawalek on Feb 08, 2013
Our tip this week will help you experiment with the settings for the Sun Ray Operating Software (SROS).
I want to setup SROS (Sun Ray Operating Software) and play with the server based .parms files and the DTU GUI. What are the quick steps to get that done?
Answer by John Renko, Consulting Developer, Oracle Desktop Virtualization:
Good news, SROS isn't too different from the "old" ways of managing the operating software on Sun Ray DTUs.
1) Download the latest SROS package from My Oracle Support (support.oracle.com)
2) Unpack the package and install it on your Sun Ray server:
pkgadd -d . SUNWutdfw
3) Prepare a sample "srconfig" file with some common settings:
bash-3.2# cat /srconfig compress=1 fastload=1 fulldup=1 lossless=0 poweroff=120 select=random servers=myhouse.domain.com,myhouse2.domain.com
4) Deploy the SROS, with GUI enabled, so you can play with the DTU settings:
/opt/SUNWut/sbin/utfwadm -AaV -i /srconfig -G force
You should now see SROS images in /tftpboot along with .parms files, merged with your /srconfig settings and a SunRay.enableGUI object.
