OpenSolaris 2009.06 - man page for on (opensolaris section 1)

on(1)					  User Commands 				    on(1)

       on - execute a command on a remote system with the local environment

       on [-i] [-d] [-n] host command [argument] ...

       The on program is used to execute commands on another system, in an environment similar to
       that invoking the program. All environment variables are passed and  the  current  working
       directory is preserved. To preserve the working directory, the working file system must be
       either already mounted on the host or be exported to it. Relative  path	names  will  only
       work if they are within the current file system. Absolute path names may cause problems.

       The  standard input is connected to the standard input of the remote command. The standard
       output and the standard error from the remote command are sent to the corresponding  files
       for the on command.

       The following options are supported:

       -d    Debug mode. Prints out some messages as work is being done.

       -i    Interactive  mode. Uses remote echoing and special character processing. This option
	     is needed for programs that expect to be talking to a terminal. All  terminal  modes
	     and window size changes are propagated.

       -n    No  Input.  This  option causes the remote program to get EOF when it reads from the
	     standard input, instead of passing the standard input from the standard input of the
	     on  program.  For	example,  -n is necessary when running commands in the background
	     with job control.

       unknown host

	   Host name not found.

       cannot connect to server

	   Host down or not running the server.

       can't find

	   Problem finding the working directory.

       can't locate mount point

	   Problem finding current file system.

       RPC: Authentication error

	   The server requires DES authentication and you  do not have a  secret  key  registered
	   with  keyserv.  Perhaps  you  logged  in without a password. Try to keylogin.  If that
	   fails, try to set your publickey with chkey.

       on server: RPC: can't encode arguments

	   The 10240 byte limit for arguments to be encoded and passed from the  sending  to  the
	   receiving system has been exceeded.

       Other diagnostic messages may be passed back from the server.

       When the working directory is remote mounted over NFS, a Control-Z hangs the window.

       Root cannot use on.
