The init.wbem utility is run automatically during installation and each time the system is rebooted. This utility starts the CIM Object Manager and Solaris Management Console (SMC) server, both of which run combined in a single process. It can be also be used to stop the CIM Object Manager and SMC server, or to retrieve status from the server.
Generally, you do not need to stop the CIM Object Manager. However, if you change an existing provider, you must stop and restart the CIM Object Manager before using the updated provider.
The init.wbem command has three options:
start - Starts the CIM Object Manager and SMC server on the local host.
stop - Stops the CIM Object Manager and SMC server on the local host.
status - Gets status for the CIM Object Manager and SMC server on the local host.
The Solaris Management Console (SMC) server is the back end to the front-end GUI, smc(1M). The SMC front-end GUI provides Solaris management applications such as a User Manager, Disk Manager, and Log Viewer. The SMC server provides tools for the console to download and performs common services for the console and its tools, such as authentication, authorization, logging, messaging, and persistence.
The init.wbem script is installed in the /etc/init.d directory. A link to the script exists in /etc/rc2.d/S90wbem, which is run with the start option when init state 2 is entered (normally at boot time). Other links to it exist in /etc/rc0.d/K36wbem, /etc/rc1.d/K36wbem, and /etc/rcS.d/K36wbem, which are run with the stop option when init states 0, 1, and S are entered (normally at system halt, or when entering "system administrator mode" or single-user mode).
Become root by typing the following command at the system prompt:
Type the root password when you are prompted.
Stop the CIM Object Manager by typing the following command:
# /etc/init.d/init.wbem stop
