This workshop is intended for Solaris Administrators who wish to quickly get up to speed with the new features of Solaris 10. It covers all the major new facilities, in a workshop environment, providing extensive hands-on practicals.

The notes also contain detailed information of significant changes provided by Solaris 8 and 9 releases, and these features will be explained in extended sessions if students require. This course is similar to Oracle's Solaris 10 New Features for Experienced Solaris System Administrators D61756GC10 (was SA-225-S10).

This course provides preparation for the Upgrade to Oracle Certified Professional, Oracle Solaris 10 System Administrator 1Z0-879 exam.

Each student will have exclusive use of a Sun workstation for the duration of the course. Each student will be provided with a full set of training notes relating to the course.

Each student leaves the course with their own set of training notes for the material covered; around 120 pages per day of training.

This course is based on Solaris 10 (Solaris 2.10, SunOS 5.10). It is also suitable for customers using Solaris 9, 8 and 7. This course is not suitable for other versions of Unix.
