ProcedureHow to Convert inetd.conf Entries

The following procedure converts inetd.conf entries into SMF service manifests. This procedure needs to be run any time a third-party application that depends on inetd is added to a system. Also run this procedure, if you need to make configuration changes to the entry in /etc/inetd.conf.

  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. Convert the inetd.conf entries.

    The inetconv command converts each entry in the selected file into service manifests.

    # inetconv -i filename
