The functioning of various system facilities is governed by a set of values that are read by each facility on startup. The values for each facility might be stored in a file for the facility located in the /etc/default directory, or in properties of a service instance in the Service Management Facility (SMF) configuration repository. For more information on SMF services and properties, see Managing SMF Services in Oracle Solaris Administration: Common Tasks.
For information about setting power management properties, see Chapter 16, Managing the System Console, Terminal Devices, and Power Services (Tasks), in Oracle Solaris Administration: Common Tasks.
# sharectl get autofs timeout=600 automount_verbose=false automountd_verbose=false nobrowse=false trace=0 environment= # sharectl set -p timeout=200 autofs
For details, see sharectl(1M).
This file is not currently used.
Client usage of DHCP is provided by the dhcpagent daemon. When ipadm is used to create a DHCP address object, or when ipadm identifies an interface that has been configured to receive its network configuration from DHCP, dhcpagent is started to manage an address on that interface.
For more information, see the /etc/default/dhcpagent information in the FILES section of dhcpagent(1M).
File system administrative commands have a generic and file system-specific portion. If the file system type is not explicitly specified with the -F option, a default is applied. The value is specified in this file. For more information, see the Description section of default_fs(4).
This facility enables you to set the ls command behavior to the RFC 959 NLST command. The default ls behavior is the same as in the previous Solaris release.
For details, see ftp(4).
System initialization properties are now part of the following SMF service:
You can display and configure system initialization properties, such as TZ and LANG, by using similar syntax:
# svccfg -s svc:/system/environment:init svc:/system/environment:init> setprop Usage: setprop pg/name = [type:] value setprop pg/name = [type:] ([value...]) Set the pg/name property of the currently selected entity. Values may be enclosed in double-quotes. Value lists may span multiple lines. svc:/system/environment:init> listprop umask application umask/value_authorization astring solaris.smf.value.environment umask/umask astring 022 upgrade application upgrade/skip_init_upgrade boolean false upgrade/value_authorization astring solaris.smf.value.environment environment application environment/LANG astring C . . .
For more information, see the FILES section of init(1M).
You display and configure keyboard properties by using similar syntax:
# svccfg -s svc:/system/keymap:default svc:/system/keymap:default> setprop Usage: setprop pg/name = [type:] value setprop pg/name = [type:] ([value...]) Set the pg/name property of the currently selected entity. Values may be enclosed in double-quotes. Value lists may span multiple lines. svc:/system/keymap:default> listprop general framework general/complete astring general/enabled boolean false keymap system keymap/console_beeper_freq integer 900 keymap/kbd_beeper_freq integer 2000 keymap/keyboard_abort astring enable keymap/keyclick boolean false . . .
For more information, see kbd(1).
For details, see the /etc/default/keyserv information in the FILES section of keyserv(1M).
For details, see the /etc/default/login information in the FILES section of login(1).
This facility enables you to set in.mpathd configuration parameters.
For details, see in.mpathd(1M).
You can display or configure SMF NFS properties by using the sharectl command. For example:
# sharectl get nfs servers=1024 lockd_listen_backlog=32 lockd_servers=1024 lockd_retransmit_timeout=5 grace_period=90 server_versmin=2 server_versmax=4 client_versmin=2 client_versmax=4 server_delegation=on nfsmapid_domain= # sharectl set -p grace_period=60 nfs
For details, see nfs(4).
For details, see the Description section of nfslogd(1M).
This facility enables you to configure initgroups(3C) lookup parameters.
For details, see nss(4).
For details, see the /etc/default/passwd information in the FILES section of passwd(1).
For details, see the /etc/default/su information in the FILES section of su(1M).
For details, see the /etc/default/syslogd information in the FILES section of syslogd(1M).
For a description of the -f function modifier, see tar(1).
If the TAPE environment variable is not present and the value of one of the arguments is a number and -f is not specified, the number matching the archiveN string is looked up in the /etc/default/tar file. The value of the archiveN string is used as the output device with the blocking and size specifications from the file.
% tar -c 2 /tmp/*
This command writes the output to the device specified as archive2 in the /etc/default/tar file.
This file identifies the default BANNER that is displayed upon a telnet connection.
The utmpd daemon monitors /var/adm/utmpx (and /var/adm/utmp in earlier Solaris versions) to ensure that utmp entries inserted by non-root processes by pututxline(3C) are cleaned up on process termination.
Two entries in /etc/default/utmpd are supported:
SCAN_PERIOD – The number of seconds that utmpd sleeps between checks of /proc to see if monitored processes are still alive. The default is 300.
MAX_FDS – The maximum number of processes that utmpd attempts to monitor. The default value is 4096 and should never need to be changed.
