Table 8-1 Comparison of Oracle Solaris 10 Configuration Tools and Oracle Solaris 11 Configuration Tools

System Configuration Feature, Tool, or Function
Oracle Solaris 10
Oracle Solaris 11
System, network, and naming service configuration
Stored in various files within/etc
Managed through various SMF services
System console service (serial port monitor) configuration
getty, pmadm, ttyadm, ttymon
svc:/system/console-login:terma SMF service

svc:/system/console-login:termb SMF service

System configuration (nodename or hostname)
Edit /etc/nodename
svccfg -s sets the config/nodename property of the svc:system/identity:node SMF service to the desired name. You must refresh and restart the service for the changes to take affect.

Note - If the system is configured to use DHCP, which is always the case when the Automatic NCP is enabled, the SMF service property is only set if the DHCP server does not provide a value for the nodename/hostname option (DHCP standard option code 12).

Power management
Edit /etc/power.conf or use pmconfig
System unconfiguration and reconfiguration
sysidtool. sys-unconfig, sysidconfig, and sysidcfg
sysconfig or the SCI tool
System registration
Auto Registration tool

Flash archive features
System recovery involves several steps. SeeSystem Boot, Recovery, and Platform Changes.
