Oracle on Solaris Cheat Sheet (by James L. Colestock),Sun Documentation***Very helpful to know how to edit configure files vi terminal sessionusing vi commands - see Appendix 1***Step 1 -
Verify OS
Step 2 - verify exectables are present
--> /usr/ccs/bin: make, ar, ld, nm
Step 3
Logging In to the System as rootCheck 1 - Checking the Hardware Requirements - Memory RequirementsAt least 1 GB of RAM--> /usr/sbin/prtconf | grep "Memory size" or 
Step 4
relationship between installed RAM and the configured swap spacerequirement
RAMSwap Space
Between 1024 MB and 2048MB1.5 times thesize of RAMBetween 2049 MB and 8192MBEqual to thesize of RAMMore than 8192 MB0.75 times thesize of RAM
To determine the size of the configured swap space--> /usr/sbin/swap -s
The following examples shows how to create a 24 Mbyte swap file called
 mkdir /files
 mkfile 24m /files/swapfile (***wait - time delay***)
swap -a /files/swapfile
 vi /etc/vfstab
 An entry is added for the swap file
):/files/swapfile - - swap - no -#
swap -l
swapfile dev swaplo blocks free/dev/dsk/c0t2d0s1 32,17 8 205624 192704/files/swapfile - 8 40952 40952
The following examples shows how to delete the
swap file.
swap -d /files/swapfile
# (
Remove the deleted swap entry from the /etc/vfstab file
rm /files/swapfile
swap -l
swapfile dev swaplo blocks free/dev/dsk/c0t2d0s1 32,17 8 205624 192720
Adding a Swap File on SolarisUse
to create a file suitable for a local swap area. For example, to create a 1GBswap file:
/usr/sbin/mkfile 1024m /swap
is the name of the file to be used as swap space. Units for the size can bekilobytes (k), blocks (b), or megabytes (m).Tell the system to start using the file as swap:
/usr/sbin/swap -a /swap
swap -l
to verify that the swap file has been activated
- Disk space requirements - 225-275 mb space / tmp dirBetween 225 and 275 MB of disk space in the /tmp directory To determine the amount of disk space available in the /tmp directory, enter thefollowing command:On Solaris 10:
# df -h /tmp
Other Solaris operating systems:
# df -k /tmpSizeUsedAvailCapacityMounted OnSwap2.0G52K2.00G 1% /tmp
Step 5
- Disk space requirements - free space
 To determine the amount of free disk space on the system, enter the followingcommand:On Solaris 10:
# df -h
Other Solaris operating systems:
# df -k
 The following table shows the approximate disk space requirements for software filesfor each installation type:
Installation TypeRequirementfor SoftwareFiles (GB)
Enterprise Edition4.68Standard Edition4.62Custom (maximum)4.71
Between 1.5 GB and 2 GB of disk space is required for preconfigured database thatuses file system storage (optional)
Step 6 -
Insufficent space..need to create additional space via new disk.Steps Involved
- Create a VM Virtual Disk (IDx)- Create a partition
