Macintosh OSX and Java Admin Console

Created: 15 Sep 2005 • Updated: 16 Jan 2013 | 3 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

I work for a company that has veritas running on solaris, I have a w2k machine with a java client for the admin console, I also have a mac osx running 10.3 and 10.4. Is there a way to get the java client running under osx? I am still new to veritas, but I would think this could work

Is there any problem setting DISPLAY environment on Solaris to your Mac X and running GUI on Solaris? If there are no firewall or something limit X connection, it works.

..sorry. I'm not a Mac user, and I understand Mac X display environment is compatible with X like BSD, Linux and other UNIXs.
If it is not true,please forget my comment.

To display X application on Mac X, X11 for Mac OS X is needed.
X11 for Mac OS X is shipped in Tiger DVD, or you can download from Apple.

On Solaris, set DISPLAY environment. If your shell is sh or it's compatibles,
run as follows.

Solaris# DISPLAY=:0.0; export DISPLAY

Or, your shell is csh, use setenv

Solaris# setenv DISPLAY :0.0

Then, permit X access with xhost on Mac X.

MacX# xhost

Run xclock as test. You will see analog clock on you desktop.

Solaris# /usr/openwin/bin/xclock &

Run jnbSA on Solaris. It will be displayed on Mac X desktop.

Solaris# /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/jnbSA &

Note: you must run X application on the shell that DISPLAY environment
has been set on.
