Solaris 11 Installation and Configuration Essentials Exam

Question 1

Which two actions are used to permanently configure a new interface?

  • A. dladm set-linkprop mtu=1500 net2
  • B. ipadm create-addr –T static –a net2/v4static
  • C. ipadm create-addr –a local=2ff0::f3ad/64 –T static –t net2/v6dhcp
  • D. ipadm create-ip net2

B, D


Question 2

Which Oracle Solaris 1l milestone is equivalent to run level 2 on an Oracle Solaris 10 or earlier

  • A. svc:/milestone/single-user:default
  • B. svc:/milestone/multi-user:default
  • C. svc:/milestone/multi-user-server:default
  • D. svc:/milestone/network:default
  • E. svc:/milestone/self-assembly-complete:default


* The services started by svc.startd are referred to as milestones. The milestone concept replaces the
traditional run levels that were used in previous versions of Solaris. A milestone is a special type of
service that represents a group of services. A milestone is made up of several SMF services. For
example, the services that instituted run levels S, 2, and 3 in previous version of Solaris are now
represented by milestone services named:
milestone/single-user (equivalent to run level S)
milestone/multi-user (equivalent to run level 2)
milestone/multi-user-server (equivalent to run level 3)
* Shut down the system.
# shutdown -iinit-state -ggrace-period -y
Brings the system to an init state that is different from the default of S. The choices are 0, 1, 2, 5, and
Run levels 0 and 5 are states reserved for shutting the system down. Run level 6 reboots the system.
Run level 2 is available as a multiuser operating state.


Question 3

The command "pkg list n *mysql-5?" produced the following output:

The IFO column of this output indicates that_______.

  • A. both versions of mysql are installed and version 5.0.91-0.171 is older
  • B. neither version of mysql is installed but either one can be selected for installation
  • C. version 5.0-91-0.171 is obsolete and cannot be selected for installation
  • D. version 5.1.37-0.1/4 is installed and can be updated
  • E. either version of mysql can be updated


Version 5.1.37-0.1/4 is installed (see note 1 below) and this version can be updated (see note 2
* 1 The i in the I column indicates that these packages are installed in this image.
2 An f in the F column indicates the package is frozen. If a package is frozen, you can only install or
update to packages that match the frozen version.
* The pkg list command tells you whether a package is installed in the current image and whether an
update is available. With no options or operands, this command lists all packages that are installed in
the current image. To narrow your results, provide one or more package names. You can use
wildcards in the package names. Package variants for an architecture or zone type that does not
match this image are not listed.

Question 4

Which IPS task requires special privileges?

  • A. Determine if a package is installed or can be updated.
  • B. Identify the group to which a package belongs.
  • C. Determine if a package is in a particular category.
  • D. Determine if a package delivers a specified file.
  • E. Create a copy of an existing IPS package repository.


Tasks such as installing and updating IPS packages, setting publishers, and modifying images require
more privilege.
Incorrect answers:
Getting Information About Software Packages
No special privileges are needed to run any of the following commands.
Commands that give you the following kinds of information about packages:
(not A) Whether the package is installed or can be updated
The description, size, and version of the package
(not B) Which packages are part of a group package
(not C) Which packages are in a particular category
(not D) Which package delivers a specified file
No special privileges are needed to run any of these commands.

Question 5

You have just completed a default Oracle Solaris 11 installation of a new server system. While testing
network connectivity from your desktop to the server, you find that you are not able to communicate
with the "sendmail" service from your desktop. Why is this?

  • A. By default, the "sendmail" software is not installed.
  • B. By default, "sendmail" is not enabled on the system.
  • C. By default, "sendmail'' access is blocked by TCP Wrappers.
  • D. By default, "sendmail" responds to local requests only.
  • E. By default, "sendmail" is running on its encrypted port.


* sendmail
* Enabling Access to Remote Clients
On an unmodified system, access to sendmail by remote clients is enabled and disabled through the
service management facility (see smf(5)). In particular, remote access is determined by the value of
the local_only SMF property:
svc:/network/smtp:sendmail/config/local_only = true
A setting of true, as above, disallows remote access; false allows remote access. The default value is
The following example shows the sequence of SMF commands used to enable sendmail to allow
access to remote systems:
# svccfg -s svc:/network/smtp:sendmail setprop config/local_only = false
# svcadm refresh svc:/network/smtp:sendmail
# svcadm restart svc:/network/smtp:sendmail
man pages section 1M: System Administration Commands, sendmail


Question 6

Which line would you remove in the GRUB's menu to prevent an automatic installation from
commencing when booting from CD or DVD, but without intentions of installing?

  • A. install=default
  • B. install=true
  • C. install=always
  • D. install=yes
  • E. install=now


To ensure the system boots without starting the installation, make sure the entry you choose to boot
does not have the install=true boot property specified in its kernel line.

Without Starting an Installation


Question 7

Which command would be used to restore the gedit package to its original as-delivered state?

  • A. pkg revert gedit
  • B. pkg restore gedit
  • C. pkg update [email protected]
  • D. pkg reinstall gedit
  • E. pkg reset gedit


Use the pkg revert command to restore files to their as-delivered condition.

Question 8

Which resource controls should you use to maximize consistency of CPU performance? Select all that

  • A. CPU share
  • B. CPU cap
  • C. RAM cap
  • D. Dedicated CPUs
  • E. Locked memory cap

A, B

A: project.cpu-shares
Number of CPU shares granted to this project for use with the fair share scheduler
B: project.cpu-cap
Absolute limit on the amount of CPU resources that can be consumed by a project. A value of 100
means 100% of one CPU as the project.cpu-cap setting. A value of 125 is 125%, because 100%
corresponds to one full CPU on the system when using CPU caps.

Question 9

In planning a system's initial configuration, you realize that you may not have disk space to complete
an installation that contains all of Oracle Solaris 11 software. Which installation method would be
your safest bet to begin the interactive installation process?

  • A. Automated installer
  • B. Text based installer
  • C. LiveMedia, or LiveDVD image
  • D. Distribution constructor
  • E. USB-based installer


The Live Media provides administrators with an opportunity to explore the Oracle Solaris 11.1
environment without installing it on a system. The system boots off the media directly allowing
administrators to start the installer should they choose to install it to a system.
* You have several alternatives for where to install Oracle Solaris 11:
Inside a virtual machine on top of your existing operating system
On the bare metal as a standalone operating system
On the bare metal alongside your existing operating system(s) (multiboot scenario)


Question 10

You are attempting to create an iSCSI LUN on your Oracle Solaris 11 server. You type m the following
command to enable the storage server / COMSTAR package and you receive the following output.
What is the problem?

  • A. The correct package name is COMSTAR.
  • B. You have not installed the storage-server package from your IPS repository
  • C. You have mistyped the service name. It is called stmfadm.
  • D. The Oracle Solaris 11 software repository is missing.
  • E. You need to install the stmf command first by typing [email protected]:~# svcadm install stamf.


'stamf' doesn't match any instances
* Enabling the COMSTAR service
COMSTAR runs as a SMF-managed service and enabling is no different than usual. First of all, check if
the service is running:
# svcs \*stmf\*
11:12:50 svc:/system/stmf:default
If the service is disable, enable it:
# svcadm enable svc:/system/stmf:default
After that, check that the service is up and running:
# svcs \*stmf\*
11:12:50 svc:/system/stmf:default
# stmfadm list-state
Operational Status: online
Config Status : initialized
ALUA Status
: disabled
: 0
