Oracle Solaris Manuals:


Oracle Solaris 11 manuals
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/documentation/solaris-11-192991.html

Illumos based systems like OmniOS or OpenIndiana
are quite identical to Oracle Solaris 11 Express (beside encryption)
so you can use the Oracle Docs for Solaris Express 11 and Illumos based systems as a reference.

Download Solaris Express 11 manuals
google or check http://archive.today/snZaS (downloads are working, links refer to Solaris 11)

Example: Oracle Express 11 manuals
