by Hal Flynn Sept. 1, 2017 via Symantec

This article has been written to provide insight into a stock installation of Solaris 8, and the services started by default. Out of the box, Solaris 8 by runs many services. This article was written using Solaris 8, the latest version available, and a Sparcstation 20. Most of this document will apply to releases of Solaris prior to 8, and to both the Sparc and Intel architectures. For documentation purposes, a full OEM install was done. Many topics discussed will be familiar to seasoned administrators. However, this document will benefit all parties involved in the administration and security aspects of Solaris.
