Sun Management Center 4.0 registers its own service tag by using the Solaris stclient interface. Information such as the product name, product version, architecture, and zone name (if any) are registered. Sun Management Center 4.0 also inserts its unique product identifier information in the service tag registry, which identifies this product within Sun Microsystems. However, sensitive information like the host name or hardware are not inserted.
Sun Management Center only inserts the information. You can send this information back to Sun Microsystems using the Product Client Registration mechanism of the Sun Connection product. Sun Management Center does not, in any form, transmit this information back to Sun on its own.
When you invoke Sun Management Center, the installation performs the following tasks:
Checks whether the registration is for an agent or a server.
Retrieves the unique resource identifier of the server for an agent-only installation from the installation registry file.
Registers the agent in the server host's stclient registry file. This parent-child relationship mapping enables the Sun Microsystems Incorporation (SMI) central server or the registration tags central repository to determine the number of nodes that a given registered Sun Management Center server is managing.
For Solaris 8, 9, and 10 versions, service tags are available as Solaris packages. You can download a service tag for the Solaris Operating System from http://www.sun.com/download/. The Solaris packages are as follows:
