We are in a closed network and can not install software.  We can however run bash scripts to get system information to keep in case we have to rebuild, replace or move systems.

I have a script with commands for solaris.  Can anybody suggest some commands I have forgotten ?


output=output.txt

#########
#       The purpose of this function it to recive a shell command string (SS)
#       Echo a begin marker with hostname and (SS)
#       Echo the results of (SS)
#       Echo a end marker just like the start marker
#       except the begin marker has "b" and the end has "e"
#
#########



# clear out old output.txt
echo > ${output}

function doo(){

echo "tqf####~"$hostname"~${1}~b~####" >> ${output}
echo  >> ${output}

${1}  >> ${output}

echo  >> ${output}
echo "tqf####~"$hostname"~${1}~e~####" >> ${output}
echo  >> ${output}

}

## most of the commented out commands are likely for redhat or software I do not have on my solaris system
## I do not have access to a solaris server with zones and want to have solaris admin write that part of the code 
## to get ip addresses for virtual zones from the host solaris 10 OS

you  can use prtdiag for hardware health status
metastat for software raid status
raidctl for hardware raid status
zoneadm list for zone information
iostat for io subsystem information
zpool list for zpool,s usage
zpool status -v for the status and health of your zpool
