ProcedureHow to Reduce SA Reregistrations

Use the following procedure to increase the minimum refresh interval for SAs to reduce reregistrations.

  1. Become superuser or assume an equivalent role.

    Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Configuring RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Security Services.

  2. Stop slpd and all SLP activity on the host.

    # svcadm disable network/slp
  3. Back up the default /etc/inet/slp.conf file before you change the configuration settings.

  4. Increase the value of the min-refresh-interval attribute of the net.slp.DAAttributes property.

    The default minimum reregistration period is zero. The zero default allows SAs to reregister at any point. In the following example, the interval is increased to 3600 seconds (one hour).

  5. Save your changes and close the file.

  6. Restart slpd to activate your changes.

    # svcadm enable network/slp
