I'm evaluating which Solaris Admin Tool we should use.  Here are some questions regarding them.

What tools besides VNC are there?
Where can I find them, including VNC, in order to evaluate?
Which would you consider the easiest to configure and use?

Thanks for any input!

Solaris Admin Tools:

    It depands on what you want to do, for user, printer manage you can use the "admintool"
command (GUI).

    For Solaris 9 or newer, you have Solaris Volume Manager, SMC etc, download the adm book from (free):

   System Administrator Collection:
   http://docs.sun.com/db/coll/47.22

VNC is useful but not that secure. If you want to go over the internet or another public network and want better security you may do better to use ssh (with X tunneling).

You do need to start the vnc deamon on your Solaris box before you can using it.

Here's the FAQ for VNC:

     I would  suggest you use X to do the job. for *nix client (Linux, Unix) they all has X,
use ssh (with X tunneling). For  M$ Windows PC, you can use X-win32, reflection X, Exceed
MI/X,  XFree86 , Cygwin...
