Sun Solaris reinstallation 8.0

by techrepublic In reply to Sun Solaris reinstallatio ...

Depending on where your data is located...

You did put /export & home directories on a separate partition, right?

You can reinstall, which will obviously blast most of your settings - but it all really depends on how you set the machine up to begin with...

i.e. give us more info and we might be able to help.
