An SS10 is a great place to start IMO.

.. this is a luxury, you don't _need_ it. For the same money I'd be
buying a cdrom drive because you'll want it for installing Solaris and
packages, and reinstalling Solaris if you break it!
Quote:> 7 ) Install Sun Volume Manager ( a.k.a Solstice DiskSuite )
Careful, there are two products here:
SDS (Solstice Disksuite) a.k.a. ODS (Online Disksuite) - SUN's software
SEVM (Solstice Enterprise Volume Manager) a.k.a. VXVM (Veritas Volume
Manager) - a 3rd party s/w raid product.
SDS is free, and easy to use. VXVM is licensed, and more complex.
They're both great products, but try SDS first.

Yup, that's how I did it.

It doesn't have to be a SS20... any reasonable Sparc will do! If you see
one, post it's spec on the site, we can tell you whether it's the right
sort of thing.

The most important bit.
