|Installing Oracle Solaris 11.1 Systems Oracle Solaris 11.1 Information Library|
You can use the sysconfig configure command to configure or reconfigure an Oracle Solaris instance in a global or non-global zone. This configuration can occur either interactively or non-interactively.
You can use the -c option in the sysconfig configure utility to specify an existing system configuration profile. If the utility is run with that option, then the utility reads the configuration specifications in the existing profile and uses those specifications to configure the system non-interactively.
For example, the following command specifies that the system be configured using the existing configuration profile named myprofile.xml.
# sysconfig configure -c myprofile.xml
Note - The -c option specifies a profile or a directory of profiles. All profiles must include the .xml file extension.
For information about system configuration (SC) profiles, see Chapter 11, Configuring the Client System.
If the sysconfig configure command is invoked without a specified profile, the SCI Tool is automatically activated.
The SCI Tool supports configuration of freshly installed or unconfigured systems. You can use this tool to provide system configuration for newly created non-global zones or other unconfigured systems. The SCI Tool consists of a series of interactive text panels that ask for configuration information. See How to Reconfigure Using the SCI Tool.
Note - The series screens in the SCI Tool also run automatically as part of a text installation.
Alternately, you can run the SCI Tool to create a new system configuration profile based on the configuration specifications entered in the SCI Tool screens. See Creating a Configuration Profile Using the SCI Tool.
Note - If you are working in a non-global zone, log into the zone as the root role as follows:
# zlogin -C -e ^ zonename
# sysconfig configure
The SCI Tool is displayed. The following steps provide instructions for completing the series of interactive panels in the SCI Tool.
Note - Use the function keys to navigate through the SCI Tool panels. You cannot use a mouse. Refer to the function key references on each panel and to the online help as needed.
The SCI Tool continues to the Time Zone panels.
Note - The IP address and netmask are required fields. The router is an optional field.
Note - If no network naming services are selected, network names can be resolved by using standard name source files such as /etc/hosts(4). For further information, see the nsswitch.conf(4) man page.
Note - To determine the domain name, check with your system administrator. Or, use the domainname command on a previously installed system.
Note - If the profile specifies a proxy credential level and the authentication method is not None, then you must provide the proxy bind information. If you omit that information, LDAP will not be initialized.
You can either let the software search for a name server or you can specify a name server. Select one of the following two choices.
Note - The software can find a name server only if that server is on the local subnet.
After completing the series of networking configuration panels, the SCI Tool displays a series of time zone panels and a Date and Time panel.
The SCI Tool continues to the Time Zone panels.
Note - The default is for the GMT time zone to be configured.
You are not required to create a user account, but you must create a root password.
In this case, root will be a role assigned to the user.
To create a user account, type a username and password. The name must begin with a letter and can only contain letters and numbers.
In this case, root will be a regular user.
The default Support Configuration panel provides an anonymous registration address. If you use this anonymous address with no password, My Oracle Support (MOS) will receive information about the system's configuration, but will not receive any of your customer information when the system configuration is uploaded to the Oracle support organization.
Alternately, you can register for security updates or disconnect OCM as follows:
You can replace the anonymous email address in the Support Configuration panel with your My Oracle Support login ID and add your My Oracle Support password. Use this option if you want to see your customer information in My Oracle Support and receive security updates. With this option, ASR will also be started.
If you delete the anonymous email address in the Support Configuration panel and leave that field blank, OCM will be started in a disconnected mode. No data will be sent to My Oracle Support. Or, if you delete the anonymous email address and replace it with another email address other than your MOS login ID, OCM will send data to Oracle support in an unauthenticated mode.
