Yet, one problem that potential users face is finding out more information about what Solaris offers.

Author Paul Watters-a recognized authority on Solaris-avoids so-called "historical" . Solaris 8 Administrator's Guide provides you with a third-party view that not only praises Solaris, but is critical and realistic in it. .

Author Paul Watters-a recognized authority on Solaris-avoids so-called "historical" services, like UUCP, which can easily fill chapters but are not commonly found in today's production environments. Indeed, he doesn't bother to provide an in-depth history of Solaris or UNIX at all, assuming. The book covers the practical experience and new skills needed to understand the impact of new services and new software products on existing server systems. Solaris 8 Administrator's Guide provides you with a third-party view that not only praises Solaris, but is critical and realistic in its assessment.

Ideal for Windows or Linux administrators looking to learn Solaris, this beginner's guide covers the basics of Solaris single host administration and explains how to manage Internet and intranet services."Provides users of Solaris with an easily comprehended guide for installing and setting up Solaris. This is also a valuable resource for learning how to employ Solaris's many features." --Steven M. Christensen, Ph.D., Founder, sunfreeware.com

I am a senior engineer for network security operations. I read this book to improve my knowledge of Solaris. Previous reviewers express widely differing opinions of "Solaris Administration: A Beginner's Guide" (SA:ABG). These reactions seem to be based on their expectations of the book. If you need an in-depth Solaris reference, buy "Solaris 8: The Complete Reference." If you want an introductory text with more content than "Solaris for Managers and Administrators," try SA:ABG.

Solaris users have traditionally suffered a lack of good third-party administration books. While not as useful as the excellent "Linux Administration: A Beginner's Guide," SA:ABG gives the reader enough information to start administering Solaris machines. This is a practical book, showing how to install the OS, use the shell, and add/remove/create packages. As a Solaris advocacy book, SA:ABG also shows Windows and Linux admins how their favorite GUI or command-line features have Solaris counterparts.

Certain aspects of SA:ABG pleasantly surprised me. For example, chapter 8 shows how to use 'truss' to trace system calls, and gives brief descriptions of /proc tools like pflags, pcred, pmap, and so on. Chapter 19 explained why NIS and NIS+ are still useful on a DNS-enabled network, and made comparisons to the Windows 2000 Active Directory. I also appreciated learning how to use Samba tools like nmblookup, smbclient, and smbstatus to interface with Windows or Samba servers.

On the negative side, SA:ABG's security chapter explained how to disable services started by inetd, but didn't fully describe how to disable non-inetd services using /etc/init.d/ scripts. This sort of advice is critical for newbie Solaris admins. Solaris offers a slew of network services by default; disabling the majority of them is a priority. I also believe the sample bash scripts on pages 113-117 could have used clearer syntax, using brackets where needed.

I have yet to read "THE" Solaris administration book, suitable for beginners and wizards alike. If you're new to Solaris, SA:ABG is a good place to start. If you need advanced instruction, keep looking!

Seamos realistas, puede existir un libro pequeño pero que contenga la mayor parte de las operaciones eseciales que hacen falta para sobrevivir como un administrator Solaris; pero seamos tambien honestos, es un libro para principiantes, lo que no le quita el merito de contener topicos sumamente utiles.
Hace 6 meses atras afronte la necesidad de moverme de NT/2000 hacia Solaris, y luego de caminar un poco alguien me recomendo a este pequeño como la puerta que debo utilizar para acceder a Solaris sin traumarme.
Pues funciona, es muy bueno, es practico y es tan claro que no hay forma de perderse. Se ha convertido en mi libro de consulta diaria, pues es muy facil encontrar en sus paginas la informacion, ejecutarla y hecho!. Honestamente lo recomiendo.
Claro, luego de haberlo leido querras saber mas, sin duda llegara el momento que desearas ver numeros que no existen entre sus paginas, asi que luego salta a Solaris - A practical guide. Ambos forman una tupla especialmente buena aunque sus autores probablemente nunca lo sepan.
Te recomiendo este libro si tienes conocimientos sobre administracion de sistemas NT/2000, unix o Red Hat y deseas moverte a Solaris. Este pequeño libro es un buen amigo para comenzar a vivir y convivir con el poderoso Solaris.
Espero que mi revision te sirva. Saludos.

I bought this book to help me transition from HP/UX to Solaris. I hoped it would provide me with Solaris specific information for common unix administrative tasks.
Unfortunately I was sadly disappointed. The book covers many topics but the information provided is so minimal as to be useless.
For example the book gives you detailed information on what information is contained in sendmail packets, but doesn't tell you much of anything about how to install or configure sendmail.
In addition there are many typos and errors in the book which is very distracting from the content.
Over all I was very disappointed in this book. It provides a very high level overview for someone that has never used a Unix system before, but is definetely not for anyone familiar with Unix. ....

I hesitate to write a review, since I haven't actually bot this book yet: I keep ALMOST buying it (about 6 times!), because it has several (even 5-10) chapters that aren't in any other Solaris book, but some look very sparse. So, it's far from a "complete" reference, but I suspect it has many "little piles" of info which would be well worth the price. (Comments from REAL users of THIS book?? Maybe someone will prompt me to finally move this to the top of my "buy NOW" priorities;-) )

The book is excellent for an introduction to Solaris for Windows Administrators. I am a Windows Systems Engineer, interested in learning Solaris...but I have been sitting around waiting for Solaris 8 certification books to be printed. This is an excellent introductory to the world of Sun and the "Solaris Way". A lot of references comparing how things are done in the Windows world to help with orientation. The one bad thing is the Author is a bit Solaris pushy...suggesting that Solaris is the smartest idea for all environments and all situations. He also beats up on Linux a bit...which may be justified, but not in this book.

This book seriously rocks - I have been responsibility for managing Linux and Solaris boxes for the past year (I'm a NT guru, but a UNIX newbie). Until I had this book, I was pretty much too scared to login to the boxes. Now, I understand how all the services seem to fit in together. This book doesn't have all the detail I'm lookin for - but it sure gave me the right pathways to find it. All the examples I tried worked first time, and now I'm confident doing DNS, Samba, Sendmail and DHCP. Well done guys!
