Service Management Facility Changes

The DNS, NIS, and LDAP services are now managed by the Service Management Facility. Administrative actions on these services, such as enabling, disabling, or restarting, can be performed by using the svcadm command. The service's status can be queried by using the svcs command. For an overview of SMF, refer to Chapter 18, Managing Services (Overview), in System Administration Guide: Basic Administration. Also refer to the svcadm(1M) and svcs(1) man pages for more details.

Information specific to each service described in this book can be found in the following sections.

For information about NIS+ and the Service Management Facility, see System Administration Guide: Naming and Directory Services (NIS+).
