ProcedureHow to Specify the Data Store Location

The default location and name for the file that contains the client data is /etc/isns/isnsdata.xml If you have a complex network environment that includes one or more backup iSNS servers, the data store must reside in a common location so that all servers can use it. Use the data_store_location property to specify the new location. You can also change the name of the file.

  1. Use the “iSNS Server Management” RBAC profile to obtain the authorizations needed for managing the iSNS service.

    Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Configuring RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Security Services.

  2. Use the svccfg command to change the location to, for example, /etc/isns2/isns_data.xml:

    svccfg -s svc:/network/isns_server setprop\config/data_store_location="/etc/isns2/isns_data.xml"
  3. If you change the data store location after the server has been enabled, you must restart the server:

    # svcadm restart svc:/network/isns_server
