What's New in Server and Client Management?

This section describes new server and client management features.

Diskless Client Support

In this Solaris 9 release, you can manage diskless clients with the smosservice and smdiskless commands. Diskless clients are systems with no disks that depend on servers for all their services.

These commands are part of the Solaris Management Console tool suite. You cannot use the Solaris Management Console to manage diskless clients. You can only use the smosservice and smdiskless commands to manage diskless clients.

For more information on managing diskless clients, see Diskless Client Management Overview and Chapter 8, Managing Diskless Clients (Tasks).
