Using Solaris User Registration
Solaris User Registration is a tool for gathering information about new Solaris releases, upgrade offers, and promotions. This tool automatically starts when a user first logs in to the desktop. The Solaris User Registration tool enables a user to register now or later. If you do not choose to register either now or later, click on the Never button to prevent display of the Solaris User Registration tool at each log in. The registration process provides Sun with the user's Solaris version, survey type, platform, hardware, and locale.
NOTE. Solaris User Registration is not started when a user is logged in as root.
If the user chooses to register, a copy of the completed form is stored in $HOME/.solregis/uprops. If the user chooses to never register, he can always start User Registration in one of the following ways.
For more information, refer to the solregis(1) manual page.
Accessing Solaris Solve/BigAdmin
When users complete the Solaris User Registration process, they can access Solaris Solve, an exclusive Web site that offers valuable Solaris product information and solutions in one convenient location. Beginning on April 16, 2001, users of the Solaris Solve Web site are automatically redirected to the BigAdmin System Administrator's Portal. BigAdmin provides a quick and easy way for users to get the most recent information on what is happening with the latest Solaris release. BigAdmin also provides a preview of additional Sun contract and service opportunities.
NOTE. Solaris Solve (redirected to BigAdmin) and SunSolve are separate Web sites.
To complete the Solaris User Registration form and access BigAdmin, users can follow the steps below.
