Sun Oracle Sparc hardware v440 v490 e450 sunfire215,245

Now as a part of Sun Solaris learning series i am going to provide you pdfs related to  Sun Sparc Hardware v440, v490,e450,sunfire215, 245. Please go trough them and i am giving soft warning – this is going to be time consuming, concentration demand work. These pdfs will provide you detail from A-Z of above mentioned servers. From unpacking server to OS install. Pay more concentration here. Once if we able to make it successful next we going to play with OBP – open boot or OK prompt. This is very important.

first need to gather and study sparc hardware p1

Sun Solaris can run on x86 and SPARC hardware. But on most production sites it runs on costly Sparc hardware. Any way now a days Sun trying to promote Solaris 10 on x86 also. In our project first we will study about some sparc hardware later  on x86. For you who don;t have access to SPARC hardware – you can learn most of the Solaris on x86 but you going to miss – OBP ( open boot ) and other stuff. But it won;t stop you to learn them only missing part is lab.on x86 90% of Solaris you can learn which is more than enough for New or Jr system administrator.

So now i have one V440 server and few blade desktops. i hope thease are enough for our project.
