    I'm rebuilding the VM for Solaris now but last night I observed that on scripts / binaries etc. that have a timing function (e.g. ".... timeout in 5 seconds with default" ) it would wait only about 1 sec before execution.

    Could someone on Linux and / or Solaris try this below and let us know if the results are odd ?

    $ time sh -c 'sleep 5'

    results should be something like this:

    real 0m5.020s
    user 0m0.000s
    sys 0m0.020s

    thanks ...

    sas - thanks .... that at least tells me it works on linux .... I'm still a bit confused about why it would pretty much bypass time events on solaris ... for example the boot loader doesn't pause for the 5 secs it normally does. I'll have to investigate further once I get a new load done.
