    Solaris 10 1/13 installation

    1003862
      Hi,

      I am doing a fresh installation of Solaris 10 1/13 on an IBM x3550 M3 server (x86).
      When I begin the installation it shows me failed to mount zfs, I was advised by oracle to ignore that.
      After the installation has finished and I reboot,I get a host of random errors after that it displays the GUI for login.
      I cannot login to the GUI. I can login to the Command Console successfully but anytime I try to login to the GUI it cycles and shows the GUI screen telling me to login again. I have created a new user and tried to login but nothing.

      How do I resolve this?

      I need help resolving this ASAP!!!

          Which errors are displayed ?
          Which accounts was used to login ? Any errors reported in CLI when you tried with these same accounts ?
          How was created the accounts ?

            Which account was used to login:
            I used root and the password that I selected during installation to login. I had no errors when I tried to login to CLI with the same accounts.

              For these rds errors, try to install patch 148416-03.

              Have you tried with both available environments ? CDE and JDS ?

                Thanks.

                I have used both GUI options and it still asks me to login again after I attempt a log in.
                I am new to this, how can I install this patch and where can I get the patch.

                  The patch is available in [My Oracle Support|https://support.oracle.com/] that is only available for who has a support contract. And you can then install it with patchadd command.

                    Thanks.

                    As soon as I get the patch and install it, I will update you.
                    Its the patchadd that still eludes me. When do I use the syntax? Do I run it from the command interface when I login or where?

                      Correct, you should run the command in the command line interface. Here is an example of the syntax :

                      # patchadd <patchnumber>

                        For the GUI login issue, check all $HOME/.dt/*log* files and /var/adm/messages files if you can find the reason of the issue.
