December 23, 2003: We've added a new section on Storage area networking describing the process of configuring Solaris servers, Brocade switches, and EMC VolumeLogix in order to set up a simple SAN. Let us know what we're doing right (and wrong) via email to support@unixway.com


There is a wealth of information available about Unix; however, the sheer abundance of data makes it difficult to see the forest for the trees. This website attempts to guide the reader step by step through an easy-to-follow recipe of setting up a fictitious enterprise, the unix way.

Just as reading a cookbook does not make you a chef, reading this guide does not replace reading documentation and learning through experience; however, it should help you to get up and running as quickly as possible.

As a member of the Internet community, we've benefited immensely from generous contributions of our peers. This website represents our attempt to give something back to the community. We hope that this information is useful to others, and we welcome feedback and suggestions for improvement. If you would like to contribute content to the website, please contact us via email at support@unixway.com
