comment whats a good tool to search tail -f output
see if the answers in unix.stackexchange.com/questions/25211/… can do what you want. the OP there wanted it to alert, but there's an example using regexes to match and beep. you could use the same regex matching, and have your own action.

comment Perl - /etc/shadow - Permission Denied
Solaris honors setuid for me. try 'chmod a+sx test-script.pl'. Adding a user who should be able to to read the shadow file to the shadow group is probably a better solution, though.

comment Why `host` and `nslookup` on Solaris 10 resolves hostnames while `ping` and `telnet` does not?
@AdamSiemion keep in mind that many of Solaris' largest customers are closed environments where DNS may not necessarily be used, and instead NIS holds sway. (or LDAP sometimes). Sun used to focus most of it's energy on it's top 50 customers. DNS stuff was added for the rest of their customers, but not made the default, because revenue from the top 50 > the rest. Oracle likely plays a similar game.
