Solaris: Key points in File System

In general inode contains two parts. First, inodes contains information about file, including owners, permissions, size etc. Second inode contains pointers to data blocks associated with files.

Different file types
Regular files
Device files contains block device and character device.
Symbolic links
Socket files

- Data block associated with directory contains lists of all files and associated inodes.
- Symbolic links can point to regular files, directories, other symbolic links and device files.
- A data block of symbolic link contains the path of original file.
- A long listing of a device file shows two numbers, separated by a comma where major number denotes specific device driver required to access the device and minor device denotes the specific unit of the device driver control.
