Sun Ray Server @ home

November 27, 2006

I finally got around to installing the Sun Ray software on the new Home Server. This was less simple than I had hoped. For some reason the configuration script would not add the correct settings to the dhcp server. However following the instructions over on the Think Thin blog for adding the settings manually. Once I did this the Sun Ray would still not work, getting a 26 D error, which if I understood it right meant that the appliance was not connecting to the Xserver.

Guess who had disabled the X server on the system? Well I did not need an X server on a headless system so I had disabled it. Thankfully restarting it is a snip:

# svcadm enable svc:/application/graphical-login/cde-login:default

and suddenly the Sun Ray burst into life, running build 53 it flies along. Now I’m off to Ebay to see if I can pick up some appliances, no bidding them up now.
