Sun Micro Ultra 10 and Solaris

I've had a Sun workstation for a few years and get the itch to play with it once in a while. Recently, JRKy and I decided it would be a nice backup for our webserver. It has a 440Mhz SPARC CPU and 1G of ECC RAM. Additionally, I added a 120G hdd some time ago.

For those of you who haven't taken a moment or two to explore Unix-based OS's, I suggest you don't. They can be very tempramental to say the least and it isn't quite like riding a bike. If you don't use it, you lose it.

So, we were able to get SSH up and running. Well, actually it was running we just managed to access it. We created users and some other minor tasks as well. It is kind of fun exploring an area that is unknown.

One cool thing is that I found a backup of some info I thought I had lost quite a while ago. I'm moving it all to my windows box via smb at the moment.

I suppose thats all for now.
