OpenIndiana Hipster

This is the de facto reference distribution of Illumos, the free Solaris fork development

Installation media:
Setup manual:

Use newest Installer for setup ex 2023.10
After setup, update to newest via 'pkg update'

Known problems::

minIO on OpenIndiana

MinIO is a Amazon S3 compatible cloud service and supported by napp-it 19.12/ 20.x as a filesystem property. It is included in the OmniOS extra repository. From first tests, the OmniOS binaries are working on OpenIndiana and Solaris,

Copy the /opt/* files to /opt/ and set the binaries for minio, minio client and rclone to executable

older OI 151a releases (based on OpenSolaris, no longer supported)


Due to some changes and bugfixes with current OpenSSL, you may need to add some links or
mini_http (the webserver for napp-it) wont,t run (run the following at console/Putty)

ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/
ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

These changes are included in the wget installer Aug 06, 2015 and up

install OpenIndiana, login as admin, open a terminal, enter su (to get root permissions) and enter:
wget -O - | perl

this installs and configures your napp-it NAS/SAN-appliance with all needed tools and settings

Realtime monitoring from 0.9f1+:
not working on OI 151.a8/9 (needs newer Perl up from 10.0.1)

about Hipster
Hipster is currently not supported by napp-it
Realtime monitoring may run in newest Hipster: 
but this may introduce problems with the Perl module (io::tty Perl errors)

to fix this, you can try:
- logout, login to napp-it. Napp-it includes two precompiled io::tty binaries (for OmniOS) and evaluates the working one

if none of them work with your Hipster release
- delete the included io.tty in /var/web-gui/data/napp-it/CGI/auto/IO/ and /var/web-gui/data/napp-it/CGI/IO/
- Install and CGI::Carp  from Cpan

other option
After installation, you will find the compiled io::tty binaries under /root or in the Perl directory.
You can replace the files in /var/web-gui/data/napp-it/CGI/auto/IO/ and /var/web-gui/data/napp-it/CGI/IO/
with the proper ones. This would allow to setup Expect on Hipster by a simple file copy

or deactivate in line
/var/web-gui/data/napp-it/zfsos/_lib/illumos/ line 2758 (see error messages).
User settings or join a domain will not work.
