This book covers all of the topics necessary to effectively install and administer a Solaris 11 system. When used as a study guide, this book will save you a great deal of time and effort searching for information you will need to administer Solaris 11 on SPARC and x86 based systems. This book covers each topic in enough detail for inexperienced administrators to learn about Solaris 11and apply the knowledge to real-life scenarios. Experienced readers will find the material complete and concise, making it a valuable reference for everyday tasks. Drawing from my years of experience as a senior Solaris administrator and consultant, you’ll find new ideas and see some different approaches to system administration that probably were not covered in your Solaris administration training courses.
You might be familiar with my Solaris certification training guides and exam prep books which have been published over the past 15 years. I am a Solaris Subject Matter Expert for Oracle. I participate in the development of the Oracle Solaris 11 certification exams and have made certain that the topics covered on the 1Z0-821 exam are covered in this book, along with many topics from the 1Z0-822 exam. But, rather than stopping at simply an exam prep book, I have gone to great effort to ensure that all tasks that you need to perform are covered beyond what is simply required to pass the exam.
Experienced Solaris administrators will find many welcome enhancements in Solaris 11, but they will also find Solaris 11 is vastly different from previous versions of the operating system. Oracle has added new features and in some cases, completely redesigned some of the functions you may have used on a daily basis. To eliminate the frustration of learning a new environment, I describe new solutions for performing familiar tasks.
