Your task is to convert a JumpStart sysidcfg file to an Automated Installer (Al) sc_profile.xml file, using js2ai. Select two unsupported items that will require changes.
Answer : A,D
Your mentor suggests using the dladm rename-link command to rename the network datalinks.
What are the two advantages of following this advice?
Answer : A,E
Explanation: A: To rename the bge0 link to mgmt0, enter the following command:
# dladm rename-link bge0 mgmt0
E: Consider that the bge0 device, whose link was named mgmt0 as shown in the previous example, needs to be replaced with a ce0 device because of a hardware failure. The bge0
NIC is physically removed, and replaced with a new ce0 NIC. To associate the newly added ce0 device with the mgmt0 configuration previously associated with bge0, enter the following command:
# dladm rename-link ce0 mgmt0
Note: How to Rename a Datalink -
Use this procedure if you want to change a datalink name to a customized name. For example, some of the datalinks in upgraded system might have retained legacy hardware- based names and you want to change these names to generic ones.
Note: dladm rename-link [-R root-dir] link new-link
Rename link to new-link. This is used to give a link a meaningful name, or to associate existing link configuration such as link properties of a removed device with a new device.
You need to update an OS image on a client. The pkg publisher command displays the wrong publisher with the wrong update:
The update is available on this updated publisher:
Select the option that describes the procedure used to update the OS image on this system from the updated publisher.
Answer : C
You are troubleshooting the failure of an Automated Installation (Al). Identify two activities that may lead to the solution. (Choose two.)
Answer : A,B
You need to remove the gzip software package.
Before you remove the package, you want to create a backup of the operating environment.
Which IPS command should you use?
Answer : B
You are going to create live zones on you server. Disk space is critical on this server so you need to reduce the amount of disk space required for these zones. Much of the data required for each of these zones is identical, so you want to eliminate the duplicate copies of data and store only data that is unique to each zone.
Which two options provide a solution for eliminating the duplicate copies of data that is common between all of these zones?
Answer : D,E
Explanation: n Oracle Solaris 11, you can use the deduplication (dedup) property to remove redundant data from your ZFS file systems. If a file system has the dedup property enabled, duplicate data blocks are removed synchronously. The result is that only unique data is stored, and common components are shared between files.
ServerA contains two ISO images of a package repository named so1.repo.iso-a and so1.repo.iso-b respectively. You need to create a single local package repository on server that clients can connect to. The package repository will be stored on the /export/IPS file system and named repo. The preferred publisher will be named solaris and the publisher
URL will be http://serverA.example.com.
Which is the correct procedure to perform on ServerA to create the local Package repository?
Answer : D
Explanation: Concatenate the files into one file using the cat command.
Make the contents of the repository .iso file available using the mount command.
To increase the performance of repository accesses and to avoid the need to remount the .iso image each time the system restarts, copy the repository files from /mnt/repo/to a
ZFS file system. You can do this copy with rsync or with tar.

The COMSTAR framework provides support for the iSCSI protocol.
Select three options that correctly describe the COMSTAR framework.
Answer : B,D,E
Explanation: B: By carrying SCSI commands over IP networks, the iSCSI protocol enables you to access block devices from across the network as if they were connected to the local system. COMSTAR provides an easier way to manage these iSCSI target devices.
D: Common Multiprotocol SCSI TARget, or COMSTAR, a software framework that enables you to convert any Oracle Solaris 11 host into a SCSI target device that can be accessed over a storage network by initiator hosts.
E: One IP port can handle multiple iSCSI target devices.

Review the ZFS dataset output that is displayed on your system:
Answer : A,C,E,G
Explanation: A: + Indicates the file/directory was added in the later dataset
C: R Indicates the file/directory was renamed in the later dataset
E: - Indicates the file/directory was removed in the later dataset
G: M Indicates the file/directory was modified in the later dataset
Note: Identifying ZFS Snapshot Differences (zfs diff)
You can determine ZFS snapshot differences by using the zfs diff command.
The following table summarizes the file or directory changes that are identified by the zfs diff command.
File or Directory Change Identifier
* File or directory is modified or file or directory link changed
* File or directory is present in the older snapshot but not in the newer snapshot
* File or directory is present in the newer snapshot but not in the older snapshot
* File or directory is renamed
View the Exhibit to inspect the boot environment information displayed within a non-global zone on your system.
Answer : A,E
You have Solaris 11 system with a host name of sysA and it uses LDAP as a naming service.
You have created a flash archive of sysA and you want to migrate this system to an Oracle
Solaris11 server, Solaris10 branded zone.
The zone Status on the Oracle Solaris 11 server is:
- zone10 incomplete/zone/zone1solaris10exc1
Select the option that will force the non-global zone to prompt you for a host name and name service the first time it is booted.
Answer : C
Explanation: Oracle Solaris 10 branded zones Oracle Solaris 10 Zones provide an
Oracle Solaris 10 environment on Oracle Solaris 11. You can migrate an Oracle Solaris 10 system or zone to a solaris10 zone on an Oracle Solaris 11 system in the following ways:
* Create a zone archive and use the archive to create an s10zone on the Oracle Solaris 11 system.
This option applies in the current scenario.
Example of command to Install the Oracle Solaris 10 non-global zone. s11sysB# zoneadm -z s10zone install -u -a /pond/s10archive/s10.flar
* Detach the zone from the Oracle Solaris 10 system and attach the zone on the Oracle
Solaris 11 zone. The zone is halted and detached from its current host. The zonepath is moved to the target host, where it is attached.
install [-x nodataset] [brand-specific options]
A subcommand of the zoneadm.
Install the specified zone on the system. This subcommand automatically attempts to verify first. It refuses to install if the verify step fails.
Unique identifier for a zone, as assigned by libuuid(3LIB). If this option is present and the argument is a non-empty string, then the zone matching the UUID is selected instead of the one named by the -z option, if such a zone is present.

The rctladm command reports the following:
# rctladm |grep task.max.lwps task.max-lwps syslog=notice [ count 1
Which of the following correctly describes the system configuration?
Answer : D
You are using AI to install a new system. You have added to following information to the AI manifest:
<configuration type= zone name= dbzone
source = http://sysA.example.com/zone_cfg/zone.cfg/>
Which statement is true with regard to the zone.cfg?
Answer : B
Explanation: The configuration element supports non-global zone configurations. When installing a global zone system, the zone configurations specified in the AI manifest are used to install non-global zones onto the system after the global zone has been installed
The configuration element has the following attributes:
The type of configuration to install. The only type supported by AI is zone. name
A name given to the configuration. This name must be unique across all configuration elements in an AI manifest. For configurations of type zone, this name is also used as the zonename for the zone. source
The location from which AI downloads the configuration file for this configuration element.
The value can be an HTTP or FILE URI specification. For configurations of type zone, this value should point to a zone configuration file as produced from the zonecfg export command.
