I purchased this book and Solaris 10 Security Essentials together, in part because they were authored by Sun's engineers, as the books state. I teach these topics, and I'm always on the lookout for better presentations or demonstrations that would improve my delivery and deepen my own understanding.There are, alas, mostly off-putting elements in this book. I don't know what I had in mind for "Solaris System Engineers" as the authors, but it sure wasn't technical writers, who compose about half the group. Accordingly, some discussions seem re-phrased from a man page or [...] material, and not improved upon either. In other places, the technical information is laid out in about the least imaginative or helpful way I can conjure. Turning data structure elements into bullet points (see Chapter 6, "Managing System Processes"), then tabling a bunch of commands and showing one simple example of each...c'mon, man, you're the engineers. That's all you know?Why this book devotes a chapter to Fault Management frankly escapes me. You can go a long way in Solaris 10 and not know or care about FMA. It's of course a very useful thing, but essential to a beginner? No. The Service Management Facility (SMF), on the other hand, fundamentally alters the administrative landscape for Solaris. Where is it? It's got about seven pages at the end of Chapter 2, "Boot, Service Management, and Shutdown." It's an architectural discussion of the sort I expected the FMA chapter to be, high-level and not intended for a lot of exploration at first. That's too bad.
