I'm bringing up a new (to me) Ultra 2 and need some help getting started.
1) Looking for a comparison of Solaris 8, 9 and 10, including
a) more important new features/fixes in each release
b) which versions supported on which platforms (sun4d|m|u)
c) when did Sun change the "hobbyist license" and effect on SMP boxes
2) I need a primer on disk storage management under Solaris. I'm from the AIX
camp, so I'm very familiar with LVM. I want to run a mirrored disk
configuration using the two internal bays on the U2. I may have to install
the box on one drive, and need to add the second drive and mirror the two at
a later date. I hear a lot about the Veritas filesystem stuff and believe it
was added into Solaris at some point (when?), but I don't know anything about
what it is or its capabilities.
3) Is Boot prom rev 3.1 latest for this machine?
