Maybe its is just me but when you order a new computer and it is built
by the same company who creates the operating system that is installed
on it I would expect that the software to be the most current seeing
that my computer was put together 3 months after the software was
released. Heck atleast have the CDs with the units!
I downloaded the 2 GIGABYTES and attempted to create the 4 CDs but
after creating the first one and trying to boot off it (as instructed
by the SUN documention) I get an error saying that it the label or
something isn't readable.
To make things worse the Dell 24 inch LCDs we bought for use with
these Blades goes black after a while when the computer is left in
the login screen and I have to rlogin from another machine and reboot
them to get the screen back. When logged in their fine but not in the
login screen even though the power.conf shows I have the autosave
I have resisted the call to move away from Solaris to Red Hat and just
purchase Dells as the rest of the company currently does. We have had
great results with Suns and even though I am not well versed in Unix
was able to get and keep the system running fairly easily. However
based on these lastest issues I don't think I would fight it as much
and it would be much cheaper and I could hand off the system admin
work to IT instead of doing it myself.
