Shutting down a port on a Sun box

A firewall is an option but tcp_wrappers will allow pretty fine grained
control over who can access specific daemons/ports.  If you need to allow or
restrict _certain_ people with regard to specific daemons this product is
definitely worth a look.  Besides, it's free.  Every Solaris/UNIX security
pub or site I've looked at recommended them as a first step in the security
process.

enclosures

I do not have the luxury of being able to put my system in a server room of
its own.  It's sits in the office where I and one other guy work.  Plenty of
others are in and out all the time.  I would like to put the server and its
components in an enclosure so as to protect it from damage, theft, console
hacking, and airborne dust.  Can anyone suggest a supplier of a cabinet that
would hold the following:

E3500
A5000 Array
DLT 4700
Matrix UPS 5000 and extra battery modules (quadruples size)

I would _like_ it to be on wheels, lock with doors front and rear, and have
bottom to top airflow with built-in fans and filter at bottom.  Any leads
would be greatly appreciated.

Advice please: text mode gui for shell.


In perl, you can use use the perlmenu module (which requires the
Curses module).  It is a very nice package and works well as
a text interface.

Software RAID or Hardware RAID...

I've toyed around with software RAID on other OSs, (not Solaris, yet) and
I've been very disappointed.  It's usually not very clean or easy to
implement, and it eats up CPU like crazy.  If you want to do mirroring, you
MIGHT be ok with a software solution.  RAID5 is good if you need speed
combined with redundancy.  It requires at least three disks, but can
accommodate many more.  I don't know how large of a set you are looking at,
but if it's more than four or five disks you'll probably want an external
chassis for your drives, which you can hook up to your Sun via SCSI.

Weird LX problems.

Note: Please send both to me and the list as I am not on it.

I have recently gotten a couple of LX boxes. After getting the
proper ram in them and confirming everything is in the right
place I still get a bizarre set of events when trying to boot
them.

After complaining about the battery being dead and resetting the
nvram to defaults I get a "Data Access Exception" error. Then from
inside the monitor a "boot <anydevice>" fails with the same error.
An ls of /iommu/sbus shows *no* devices. Likewise "test scsi" and
"test net" both tell me device not found. This same set of
circumstances happens on both machines. 

thankz,
chris

Shutting down a port on a Sun box


There is a package called TCP Wrappers.

I've not used it so cannot comment on suitability for this purpose.

Solaris 2.4 network problem

I have just performed an clean installation of, believe it or not, Solaris
2.4 on a 4/330 Sparc machine. Things went fine but I cannot seem to get the
box to see the network. I have compared the /etc files with another box
(2.5.1) that is working on our network and everything seems fine. The error
I get is when route is run to add the gateway address, it returns network
unreachable. I know this can't be true because I can boot off the 2.4 CDROM
and run ifcongfig and route to get network access on this machine.

Any suggestions on where to look? I have checked ifconfig and the
hostname.le0 files. I have a /etc/defaultrouter file with the gateway
address in it.  nswwitch.conf is setup for files only except for hosts
where I have added a dns entry also. I setup resolv.conf with the
nameservers. Tried different ethernet jacks and cables.

Can't think of what I am missing?!

Thanks for any tips!
