FE01.math OS setup and Install

Host Information

Sun Ultra 5/10 UPA/PCI (UltraSPARC-IIi 440MHz), No Keyboard
OpenBoot 3.25, 640 MB (50 ns) memory installed, Serial #13724834.
Ethernet address 8:0:20:d1:6c:a2, Host ID: 80d16ca2.

Operating System Install

Ultra 10 (440 MHz CPU) comes with Solaris 8 (2.8) installed. We are using Solaris 2.6 in our general environment. To install Solaris 2.6 on a Sparc CPU greater than 419 Mhz you need to use the special hardware cd that comes with the sparcstation (Operating Environment Installation CD 1999) along with the Solaris 2.6 5/98 Server CD (get from IST as we don't have our own copy).

During the installation I used these replies:

Once system has rebooted after the initial OS install:

XHiering Host

Basic XHier Services

Setup the Xhier Tree using csh

Setup NFS Mount of regional information and while we're at it also add all the NFS mounts. Append to the "/etc/vfstab" file the following lines:

# NFS Mounts from fisher.math
fisher-1.math:/vol/vol2/dotsoftware/regional - /.software/regional nfs - yes rw,hard,grpid
fisher-1.math:/home/mail   - /var/mail   nfs     -       yes     rw,hard,grpid,actimeo=0
fisher-1.math:/home/u1     - /u1         nfs     -       yes     rw,hard,grpid
fisher-1.math:/home/u2     - /u2         nfs     -       yes     rw,hard,grpid
fisher-1.math:/home/u3     - /u3         nfs     -       yes     rw,hard,grpid
fisher-1.math:/home/u4     - /u4         nfs     -       yes     rw,hard,grpid
fisher-1.math:/home/u5     - /u5         nfs     -       yes     rw,hard,grpid
Create home mount point directories plus /u (where the link tree into u# lives).

Also want to support kludge from when home directories where on pythagoras:/fsys2 and everyone use to reference them via /fsys2/u*.

Mount the regional information which is used by xh-first-time.

Setup the Xhier access rights.

Add fe02.math to /etc/hosts.equiv

Add host to appropriate groups

Add host to setpw setup

Initializing xhier.

Installing Basic Service Packages. Most (all) of this will complain about "xh-register: Can't find registrar host 'xh-registrar.uwaterloo.ca': Error 0" This error goes away after the reboot that occures a little further along.

Sometime around now ask /software/lpr/.admin/Maintainer to setup a printcap file on this host.

Manual Package Cleanups

Quick blasting of packages (Needs to be sorted by functional groups)

Final Tweaking

rcs initial /etc/vfstab and /etc/dfs/dfstab

Turn off dtlogin with "chmod a-x /usr/dt/bin/dtlogin"
