Setting up Webmin on Solaris 10

Webmin, a web-based interface for system administration has been bundled with Solaris 10. It gets installed by default, but we need to set it up if we want to configure and administer the system, over the web. Java based rich client Solaris Management Console (/usr/sbin/smc) is also available on Solaris 8 and later. However Webmin is faster and light weight compared to SMC.

Instructions for the setup:
  1. Login as root
  2. cd /usr/sfw/lib/webmin
  3. Run the setup script
    • ./setup.sh
    • Enter 1 for Operating System ie., Sun Solaris. There's Sun Java Desktop System as option 59. Perhaps it is the Linux version of JDS
    • Enter 6 for Version ie., Sun Solaris 10
    • Enter a port number for the web server. 10000 is the default port
    • Installation completes without asking any further questions
  4. Open up the URL: https://localhost:10000 in a web browser. Replace 10000 with the configured port, if the default value has been changed
  5. Login as root, and have fun
  6. To uninstall webmin, simply run /etc/webmin/uninstall.sh

Here's a screenshot of Webmin running on Solaris 10/JDS:

Note:
  1. For other versions of Solaris, download webmin from prdownloads.sourceforge.net/webadmin/webmin-1.230.tar.gz web page, and follow the instructions posted here
  2. Webmin documentation is at www.webmin.com/index2.html
  3. According to the supported Operating Systems web page, The best supported systems at the moment are Solaris, Linux (Redhat in particular) and FreeBSD. Webmin currently supports 59 flavors of *nix {and even Windows, I guess}
