Shell Script migration issues

Hi All,

We will be doing a Solaris 8 to Solaris 10 migration migration, just wanted to know if there are any known / common issues arise from this migration from Shell script point of view.

I tried searching this site but mostly post are related to SA's question and jumpstart, etc. If there's link which you can forward then that will also work.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Regards,
Arvind.

What's the shell used in Solaris 8 and what will be used in Solaris 10? Is it ksh in both the versions?

Most of the scripts are in 'sh' then in 'csh' and lastly in 'ksh'.

Thanks for the response.

Regards,
Arvind.

It depends on system dependencies in your scripts. There are parts of Solaris 10 that changed from Solaris 8. Any scripts dealing with services for example. In terms of syntax sh and ksh should not cause problem. csh may be another issue.

Arvind.
