Upgrade to Oracle Solaris 11 System Administrator
Question No: 71
You have Solaris 11 system with a host name of sysA and it uses LDAP as a naming service.
You have created a flash archive of sysA and you want to migrate this system to an Oracle Solaris11 server, Solaris10 branded zone.
The zone Status on the Oracle Solaris 11 server is:
– zone10 incomplete/zone/zone1solaris10exc1
Select the option that will force the non-global zone to prompt you for a host name and name service the first time it is booted.
Use zonecfg to change the zonename before booting the system for the first time
Use the – u option with the zoneadm – z zone10 attach command.
Use the -u option with the zoneadn -z zone10 install command.
Remove the sysidcfg file from the lt;zonepathgt;/root directory before booting the non- global zone.
Explanation: Oracle Solaris 10 branded zones – Oracle Solaris 10 Zones provide an Oracle Solaris 10 environment on Oracle Solaris 11. You can migrate an Oracle Solaris 10 system or zone to a solaris10 zone on an Oracle Solaris 11 system in the following ways:
Create a zone archive and use the archive to create an s10zone on the Oracle Solaris 11 system.
This option applies in the current scenario.
Example of command to Install the Oracle Solaris 10 non-global zone. s11sysB# zoneadm -z s10zone install -u -a /pond/s10archive/s10.flar
Detach the zone from the Oracle Solaris 10 system and attach the zone on the Oracle Solaris 11 zone. The zone is halted and detached from its current host. The zonepath is moved to the target host, where it is attached.
install [-x nodataset] [brand-specific options] A subcommand of the zoneadm.
Install the specified zone on the system. This subcommand automatically attempts to verify first. It refuses to install if the verify step fails.
Unique identifier for a zone, as assigned by libuuid(3LIB). If this option is present and the argument is a non-empty string, then the zone matching the UUID is selected instead of the one named by the -z option, if such a zone is present.

The rctladm command reports the following:
# rctladm |grep task.max.lwps task.max-lwps syslog=notice [ count 1 Which of the following correctly describes the system configuration?
A message will be logged with syslogd when the number of notice messages generated by the resource control threshold meets or exceeds the value specified with [count]
A message will be logged with sysloqd when the number of violations generated by the resource control threshold meets or exceeds the value specified with [count].
The global resource control monitoring for the task.max-lwps resource control has been enabled and syslog messaging for that resource control has been set to notice. However, because the [count] value has not been specified, there is no threshold set for the resource to monitor. The configuration to monitor the task.max-lwps resource control is incomplete.
The global resource control monitoring for the task.max-lwps resource control has been enabled, syslog messaging for that resource control has been set to notice.

You are using AI to install a new system. You have added to following information to the AI manifest:
lt;configuration type= “zone” name= “dbzone”
source = “http://sysA.example.com/zone_cfg/zone.cfg”/gt; Which statement is true with regard to the zone.cfg?
The zone.cfg file is text file in a zonecfg export format.
The zone.cfg file is an AI manifest that specifies how the zone is to be installed.
The zone.cfg file is an xml file in a form suitable for use as a command file for the zonecfg command.
The zone.cfg file is an SC profile with keywords that are specific for configuring a as part of the installation process.
It is am xml configuration file from the /etc/zone directory. It will be used as a profile for the zone. It specifies the zonename, zonepath, and other zonecfg parameters.
Explanation: The configuration element supports non-global zone configurations. When installing a global zone system, the zone configurations specified in the AI manifest are
used to install non-global zones onto the system after the global zone has been installed The configuration element has the following attributes:
The type of configuration to install. The only type supported by AI is zone.
A name given to the configuration. This name must be unique across all configuration elements in an AI manifest. For configurations of type zone, this name is also used as the zonename for the zone.
The location from which AI downloads the configuration file for this configuration element. The value can be an HTTP or FILE URI specification. For configurations of type zone, this value should point to a zone configuration file as produced from the zonecfg export command.

ServerA contains two ISO images of a package repository, named sol.repo.iso-a and sol.repo.iso-b respectively. You need to create a single local package repository on serverA that clients can connect to. The package repository will be stored in the /export/IPS file system and named repo. The prefered publisher will be named solans and the publisher URL will be http://serverA.example.com.
Which is correct procedure to perform on ServerA to create the local package repository?
cat sol repo iso-a sol repo iso-b gt; sol fill iso
Mount the ISO image and use the rsync command to extract the contents of the ISO file to the /export/IPS file system. Set the pkg/inst_root property to /export/IPS/repo and the pkg/readonly property to true Set the preferred publisher by using pkg set-publisher -G http://pkg oracle com/solaris/release/ -g http://serverA.example.com/ solans

Which five statements describe options available for installing the Oracle Solaris 11operating system using the installation media?
You can perform a text or LiveCD installation locally or over the network.
The text Installer does not install the GNOME desktop. The GNOME desktop package must he added after you have installed the operating system.
The LiveCD Installation cannot be used to install multiple instances of Oracle Solaris.
The LiveCD installer cannot be used if you need to preserve a specific Solaris Volume Table of Contents (VTOC) slice in your current operating system.
The LiveCD Installer is for x86 platforms only.
The GUI installer cannot be used to upgrade your operating system from Solaris 10.
If you are installing Oracle Solaris 11 on an x86-based system that will have more than one operating system installed in it, you cannot partition your disk during the installation process.
The LiveCD installer can be used for SPARC or x86 platforms.
Explanation: A: If the network is setup to perform automated installations, you can perform a text installation over the network by setting up an install service on the network and selecting a text installation when the client system boots.
B: After a fresh install of Solaris 11 express, only the console mode is activated. To add Gnome, simply do :
$ sudo pkg install slim_install
This will install additional packages that are not installed by default. D: The text installer advantages over the GUI installer include:
* In addition to modifying partitions, the text installer enables you to create and modify VTOC slices within the Solaris partition.
F: How do I upgrade my Solaris 10 or lower systems to Solaris 11?
Unfortunately, you CAN#39;T. There is no direct upgrade installer or other tool that will allow you to upgrade from earlier releases of Solaris to Solaris 11. This is primarily due to the vast changes in the packaging mechanism in Solaris 10.
