|Transitioning From Oracle Solaris 10 to Oracle Solaris 11 Oracle Solaris 11 Information Library|
The following system configuration and SMF features are supported in Oracle Solaris 11:
System, network, and naming services configuration migration to SMF – Several aspects of system and network configuration, including configuration that was previously stored in the /etc directory, is now stored in an SMF repository. Moving configuration data to SMF service properties enables the delivery of a uniform, extensible architecture for system configuration that provides customers with a more complete capability for managing system configuration. See System Configuration Changes and Migration of System Configuration to SMF.
System console and terminal device management – The system console and locally connected terminal devices are now managed by SMF. The sac and saf programs for managing console services and terminals are no longer available.
SMF administrative layers – Information for recording the source of properties, property groups, instances, and services has been added to the SMF repository. This information enables you to determine which settings are administrative customizations and which settings were delivered with Oracle Solaris by a manifest. See SMF Administrative Changes.
System Configuration Utility – Uses SMF to centralize configuration information. The sysconfig utility replaces the sys-unconfig and sysidtool utilities that are used in Oracle Solaris 10 to unconfigure and reconfigure an Oracle Solaris 11 instance. The sysconfig utility can be run interactively by using the System Configuration Interactive (SCI) tool or in an automated manner by creating an SC configuration profile. See System Configuration Tools Changes.
System registration through Oracle Configuration Manager – Oracle Configuration Manager collects configuration information and then uploads it to the Oracle repository during the first reboot of a system after an installation. This information is used by Oracle to provide better service to customers. In Oracle Solaris 10, the Auto Registration feature performs a similar function. See System Registration Changes.
