Not sure if this is a bug, but I was adjusting my nsswitch.conf in OmniOS installation from:
passwd: files nis ad
group: files nis ad
passwd: files ad
group: files ad
because I couldn't edit local users' passwords as root - received error: user is in use (even though user...
I just upgraded my server rack with a few more drives, now as 12TB per disk is a lot of space I wanted to check them thoroughly for errors before actually using them. On windows I know of several tools to do that but have no experience/idea for Solaris/OmniOS.
What do you usually do for...
Looking for man pages in OmniOS is less than satisfying. Is there some kind of pkg base I'm missing in my install?
root@napp-it01:~# man sharectl
No manual entry for sharectl
Boo. There's all these commands I don't recognize because I have basically no experience with Solaris. Man...
Dear OmniOS users,
I'm wondering how feasible it would be for me to install pkgsrc and keep all its dependencies separate in OmniOS 151030?
I keep finding myself needing packages that are not available in the omniosce repos. pkgsrc installs all its own dependencies into /opt/local
Is there a...
Does anyone know how to set up snapshots ala Timeslider on Solaris 11.4 using napp-it? I set up several recurring snapshots on our main filesystem under Jobs/Snaps and enabled the Auto service. This filesystem has two nested filesystems, each are shared via the CIFS service.
We recently set up a Solaris 11.4 server based on the following hardware;
2x XEON Silver 4114 10 Core 2.2GHz
(LSI 3008 IT mode)
512GB DDR4-2666 ECC RAM
2 x Intel S4600 240GB
2 x Intel Optane 905P 480GB U.2
24 x HGST 10TB SAS
2 x Intel X540T2 10Gbe NIC
I'm currently using OmniOS 15022 (old) with Napp-it pro but would really like a storage system with SMB3 multichannel support.
I really like how simply OmniOS/Napp-it integrate with my domain and allow the use of compmgmt.msc to control permissions and would like to continue using this.
OI Hipster 2017.10 snapshot is ready.
I was just looking at the release notes for the Solaris 11.3 patches (version 126.96.36.199) from August 18 , and I noticed several references to Solaris 12 ! (see screenshot ) very wierd since Oracle killed Solaris 12 a long time ago and fired all the developers.
I guess they just missed to clean...
I have a Tyan S7012 motherboard with 2 x 5670 CPUs (Westmere, 2.93ghz) and 18 RDIMM slots.
I started out with a total of 120GB RAM - 12 x 8GB + 6 x 4GB, arranged as 8, 8, 4GB in each of the 6 channels (3 channels per CPU * 2 CPUs).
I wanted to get in as much RAM as I could reasonably...
I am using pkg change-facet to change version-lock to False on a large number of packages, such that I can update these packages to their latest version. This is working OK in the global zone.
The problem is that these changed facets are not being inherited into my non-global zones. So...
I just started testing iSCSI volumes from my Solaris 11.3 server to my Windows 10 workstation. It's working great, and was super easy to setup.
But I am seeing one very confusing thing: zfs list always reports far more data used in the ZFS volume than I have actually created.
I'm hoping to get a high-performance PCI-E SSD to add to my home Solaris 11.3 file server/NAS. Specifically, a 1.2TB LSI Nytro Warp drive. (Forum thread here.) This device is an LSI 2308 with 6 x 200GB SSDs, which by default are configured as a hardware RAID-0. But I believe it is...
I'm in the process of a major upgrade to my home NAS. The server runs Solaris 11.3, with hardware of: 2 x 2.93GHz hex-core LGA1366 CPUs, 72GB RAM (considering upgrading to 120GB) and 32 ports of LSI 6GB SAS/SATA (2 x 2008, 2 x 2308).
I currently have 27 x 2TB 7.2k SATA drives...
I recently started using smartmontools, installed via the CSWsmartmontools package on my Solaris 11.3 server. I am particularly interested in this for temperature measuring of my 24 HDDs - in particular the 12 that are in my external JBOD chassis, which doesn't have much airflow between...
I'm running Solaris 11.3 on a Tyan S7012 LGA1366 motherboard with 2 x X5670 2.93ghz CPUs and 72GB of ECC RAM.
I just got the Tyan mobo in the last few days. It works fine except for one annoyance: when I shutdown the server (shutdown -i5), it won't power down. It gets to "Syncing...
I am currently running Solaris 11.3 on my home server. I went with Solaris 11 because I was a Solaris 10 + OpenSolaris admin for many years, so it is what I know. Plus I have a free license for Solaris 11, so licensing/patches are not a concern for me.
But now I am thinking I made a...
I got my first LSI SAS HBA this week (LSI SAS 2008) and now want to get a second for my home file server running Solaris 11.3.
I've found a good deal on a used LSI 9217-8i with the SAS 2308 chipset. It's priced the same as an OEM 9211-8i/SAS2008 but it's in the UK so I can get it...
I'm in the process of building a new pool on my home Solaris 11.3 server. The final pool will be 16 x 2TB drives, configured as 2 x 8-drive RAIDZ2 for a total of 12 data drives and 4 parity.
One complication is that I have a mixture of 4k and 512 sector drives, and so I've been...
I am in the process of upgrading the storage on my home file server, which runs Solaris 11.3 on an Ivy Bridge i5-3550 (H77 chipset) with 32GB of RAM, using a mixture of storage controllers : 8 ports from an LSI 9211-8i; 6 ports from the onboard H77 controller and up to another 8 ports...
