This book describes the system controller command line interface for the Sun FireTM midrange systems: E6900/E4900/6800/4810/4800/3800. The system controller is responsible for controlling system functions, environmental monitoring, domain control, and hardware control of the server. Using the command line interface, you can configure the platform and domains, power on and off domains, power supplies, fans, and other components. Access to the Solaris domain console is also possible using the command line interface.
This book is written for system administrators or people who have a working knowledge of the Solaris operating environment. If you do not have such knowledge, you should first read the Solaris User and System Administrator document collections and consider UNIX® system administration training.

Chapter 1 introduces you to the system controller and briefly describes platform administration and domain administration.
Chapter 2 explains system controller command syntax, command names, and command arguments.
