Sun Service Tag

A Sun Service Tag is a product identifier that is designed to automatically discover your Sun systems, software, and services for quick and easy registration. A service tag uniquely identifies each tagged asset, and enables the asset information to be shared over a local network in a standard XML format.

Service tags are enabled as part of the Service Management Facility (SMF) and the SMF generic_open.xml profile. If you select the SMF generic_limited_net.xml profile, service tags are not enabled.

For more information about SMF, see the System Administration Guide: Basic Administration. For more information about service tags, the types of information collected, and automatic registration, see Sun Connection on BigAdmin at
