ISC DHCP 4.1, Solaris 10, Sun Cluster 3.2 1/09 and... Solaris Containers

I’ve been trying to compile ISC DHCP 4.1 and to get it installed on a Solaris 10 u6 (11/08) zone for a few days.
Compiling ISC DHCP is a simpler, as long as you are using gcc and not Solaris cc
The issues have arisen when it has come to run ISC DHCP in a Solaris 10 zone .

Console Settings for Linksys - SRW224G4

Default serial console settings for Linksys Switch SRW224G4 (can be changed):
  • Bits per second: 38400
  • Data bits: 8
  • Parity: None
  • Stop bits: 1
  • Flow Control: None

Works great in PuTTy, just set connection type to 'Serial' and set speed manually (38400).

You'll need a "console" cable for this, but its not a rollover - it's a DB9F to DB9F straight through.

Default settings info
Default IP:

username: admin
(password is blank)

To reset to defaults (from
  1. Connect to the console port using terminal emulation parameters (see above)
  2. Reboot switch
  3. Hold down Ctrl+U while rebooting
  4. Menu will be displayed
  5. Select > [D] Delete file
  6. Type startup-config (be sure that this is the ONLY file that you delete – if you delete other files, you will have to reload the firmware)
  7. Now you have erased the configuration file and you should be able to reboot and login with the default username and password.
