You can run the SCI Tool to generate a new system configuration profile based on the configuration specifications entered in the SCI Tool panels. The default location for the new profile is /system/volatile/profile/sc_profile.xml.
To create a new configuration profile, use the sysconfig create-profile command. A profile will be created, but the configuration will not be applied to the system.
The SCI Tool creates the new configuration profile based on the specifications that you provide in the SCI Tool panels. The new profile is stored in the default location. You can use that new profile to configure a system as shown in the following example.
# sysconfig configure -g system -c /system/volatile/profile/sc_profile.xml
The -g option is used to specify a specific functional grouping that should be configured. In this example, the full system will be configured. For a list of the functional groupings, see Table 6-1.
The following example uses the sysconfig create-profile -o option to specify a different output file location when creating the profile. Then, the sysconfig configure -c option points to that profile location to reconfigure a system.
# sysconfig create-profile -o /tmp/myprofile.xml # sysconfig configure -g system -c /tmp/myprofile.xml
Note - You must include the .xml extension for the configuration profile, in order successfully use that profile for reconfiguration.
For further information, see the sysconfig(1M) man page. Also, see Chapter 11, Configuring the Client System.
