Adding Users with Solaris Management Console

After installing Solaris 10 onto a home system, I clicked on the Launch button and looked for a tool to set up a user account. I was surprised that I could not find one. Sure, I could run useradd from the command line, but I expected to find some graphical tool readily available as a menu option from the root account as well. I had put Solaris 10 on an office system previously, but couldn't remember if I had used useradd to do so. I couldn't find admintool on the Solaris 10 system

There is a GUI tool, available under Solaris 10, the Solaris Management Console (SMC), but it wasn't a menu option accessible from the Launch button. You can start it from a command prompt by typing smc, however.

Is Solaris Running on a Sparc or 32-bit or 64-bit I386 System?

You can determine whether Solaris is running on a Sparc system or an x86-based system from the command line using uname -a.

Architecture"uname -a" output
SparcSunOS beetle 5.7 Generic_106541-39 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-5_10
32-bit x86SunOS mantis 5.10 Generic i86pc i386 i86pc
64-bit x86SunOS bee 5.10 Generic_118855-14 i86pc i386 i86pc

It isn't apparent from the uname output whether in the case of an x86-based system the system is a 32-bit or 64-bit system. But you can use the isainfo command to get that information.

Architecture"isainfo" output
Sparcsparcv9 sparc
32-bit x86i386
64-bit x86amd64 i386

You can get more information using the -v option for isainfo.
