Sun RSC Configuration
The Sun Remote System Control (RSC) is a server management tool that allows you to monitor and control your server over modem lines and over a network.<>The server can boot and operate normally when RSC software is not enabled, and Sun console features continue to be available on standard RS232 ports.
Before you begin, you must:
- Confirm the Solaris OS running is Solaris 8 (7/01) or later
- Download the RSC utilities on your server
- Assign an IP address to your server
Login as root to your E250 and dowload the RSC utilities (www.sun.com/servers/rsc.html)
Download the ZIP file for the version of Solaris OS installed on your server:

Once the download has completed, unzip the file in a temporary location.
Install the following package extracted from the ZIP file:
# pkgadd -d . SUNWrsc SUNWrscd SUNWrscj
