RE: move cvs from solaris to solaris

Which version of Solaris will you be running on the new hardware?  If the
vendor's doing the installation it may very well be Solaris 9 in which case
you shouldn't have to change your setup; however, be aware that Solaris 10
introduced the Service Management Facility which is meant as a replacement
for inetd and the rc (IIRC) directories.  I believe there were some messages
on the sun-managers list a few weeks ago about working with the new system.
I am running Solaris 10 on a few servers, but haven't had to convert any
inetd services, so I can't give you exact details for migrating to SMF.

Here's a snippet from the inetd(1M) manpage on Solaris 10:

     Services are no longer managed by editing the  inetd  confi-
     guration  file, inetd.conf(4). Instead, you use inetconv(1M)
     to convert the configuration file content  into  SMF  format
     services,  then  manage these services using inetadm(1M) and
     svcadm(1M). Once a service has been converted  by  inetconv,
     any changes to the legacy data in the inetd config file will
     not become effective. However, inetd does alert the adminis-
     trator when it notices change in the configuration file. See
     the start description under the "inetd Methods" section  for
     further information.

     Also note that the current inetd cannot be run from  outside
     the  SMF. This means it cannot be run from the command line,
     as was supported by the previous inetd. If you attempt to do
     this,  a  message  is  sent  to  stderr  displaying mappings
     between the options supported by the previous inetd  to  the
     SMF version of inetd.
