You can add legacy tools or unbundled tools to the console. If you want to add authentication to these tools, see Managing RBAC in System Administration Guide: Security Services.
A legacy tool is any application that was not designed specifically as a Solaris management tool. Each tool you add to a toolbox can then be launched from the Solaris Management Console.
You can add the following types of legacy tool applications to a console toolbox:
Command-line interface (CLI) applications
# /usr/sadm/bin/smc edit &
The toolbox selected is opened in the Toolbox Editor.
A legacy application can be added to the top node of a toolbox or to another folder.
The General panel of the Legacy Application Wizard is displayed.
If you want to add a new tool package that can be launched from the Solaris Management Console, use the following procedure.
# pkgadd ABCDtool
