Set up NFS shares:

zfs set sharenfs=rw,nosuid, syspool/export/home/music

Change NTP servers:

/etc/inet/ntp.conf is the config file.

Add hard drive:

With ZFS there is no need to partition drives, just install the drive in the server and attach it to your pool. For example, to convert a single drive pool into a mirror run this command:

zpool attach rpool c4d0s0 c4d1s0


The default procmail configuration doesn't appear to deliver mail, add these lines to /etc/procmailrc

sndr config:

root@cluster2:~# sndradm -i
solaris-pri /dev/rdsk/c2d0s0 /dev/zvol/rdsk/syspool/bitmap01 solaris-sec /dev/rdsk/c2d1s0 /dev/zvol/rdsk/syspool/bitmap01 ip sync g primary
solaris-pri /dev/rdsk/c1d1s0 /dev/zvol/rdsk/syspool/bitmap00 solaris-sec /dev/rdsk/c2d0s0 /dev/zvol/rdsk/syspool/bitmap00 ip sync g primary
