'normal user name you gave at install time?'

Yes. That one.

Thank you.

Will dig into 'Root' situation later.

Easy enough to convert root from a role to a normal user account that you can login to (if you want to negate the security improvements of Solaris 11).

In Solaris 11, root is defined as a role by default. Meaning you can no longer login as root. You have to login as a user and assume the role to elevate your privs to root.

Appreciate all the help.

Pulled the plug on using Unix.

Did learn something. You can see where all these Linuxes came from.

In the future it looks like BSD with a Gnome desktop is the way to go.

Solaris looks like it's a proprietary system.

Like the IBM OS if it's still around.

Happy Holidays!
