I'd like to share some lessons I've learned with OpenSolaris. Being a long-time Linux user (happily using it since 1999 and counting) I found that some commands don't exist but have other equivalents or that they don't support the options a Linux user is used to. This list is work in progress, if you some more just tell me.
<!-- break -->
||svcadm (svcs -a to list the services and their states)
||vmstat (hard to interpret, not really equivalent to free but all I could find)
||ps -Af (BSD syntax not supported)
|tar -xzf foo.tar.gz
||gzcat foo.tar.gz | tar xf - (same thing with .bz2 and bzcat
||no equivalent, but format shows a list when called without argument
||psrinfo (but doesn't show as much information, use isainfo -bv)
Other useful command
- cfgadm: Displays devices.
- prtconf: Displays some system/device informations.
- prtdiag: Displays infos about your mainboard.
- sharemgr show -vp: Shows exported shares (e.g. NFS)
Thanks to Ty Morton for letting me know about cfgadm and sharemgr.
