Solaris Lab

I am employed in a Solaris centric enterprise.  In order to better enhance my skills, I've decided to obtain the Oracle Certified Professional - Oracle Solaris Systems Administrator certificate. 

This certificate requires that you first become an Oracle Certified Professional.  In order to accomplish this, you must attend a class through the Oracle University.  I accomplished that in August 2012. Afterwards, you need to pass two exams.

To better help me study for the exams, and to provide an environment that will allow me to make, and therefore learn from, mistakes without jeopardizing my employer's operations, I am building up my own "solaris lab".

In this section, I will blog about my experiences and challenges to both document my progress and to possibly assist others who might be involved in similar projects.

FOLLOW-UP:

I passed the first exam (1z0-877) on 30NOV12
I passed the 2nd exam (1z0-878) on 21DEC12
