This book has the same quality and relevance level as the well known classic "Unix System Administration Handbook", but then specifically for the Solaris Operating Environment. This book is what "Solaris Solutions for System Administrators" should have been. If you don't know Solaris, this book can take to the level where you will be optimising (performance and security) driver parameters with ndd, and doing network diagnostics with snoop etc. If you are an experienced Solaris System Administrator without a photographic memory, than this superb piece of documentation will be the reference you want.
This book was a great help to me. I had not used Solaris for around 2 years, and this book helped me to get a feel for where I was, and also helped me land a great job. I recommend that everyone currently in or thinking about entering into Solaris work get this book!
It was like someone turning on the lights after groping in the dark trying to understand Unix. Analogies describing ports/sockets was compared to doors to a building that allowed you access to different services. Is there a book like this for CCNA? Please show me the light if there is. During my unemployement I rush to understand IT concepts to get me certified, seeking to know the subject intimately through understanding rather through memorization. Finally, I have UNIX cornered with the help of this book.
HiIf you have basic Unix knowledge and If you want learn to how to manage a Solaris box, you have to buy it.Good introduction for Solaris Administration.Regards
