Oracle GlassFish Server 3.0.1 Administration Guide

ProcedureTo Configure a Domain for Automatic Restart on Oracle Solaris 10

On Oracle Solaris 10, you can use the asadmin create-service subcommand to create an Oracle Solaris Service Management Facility (SMF) service that restarts a DAS. The service grants to the process the privileges of the user that runs the process. When you create an SMF service, the default user is the superuser. If you require a different user to run the process, specify the user in method_credential.

If your process is to bind to a privileged port of Oracle Solaris 10, the process requires the net_privaddr privilege. The privileged ports of the Oracle Solaris operating system have port numbers less than 1024.

To determine if a user has the net_privaddr privilege, log in as that user and type the command ppriv -l | grep net_privaddr.

After you create and enable the SMF service, if the domain goes down, SMF restarts it.

Before You Begin

To run the asadmin create-service subcommand, you must have solaris.smf.* authorization. See the useradd and usermod man pages to find out how to set the authorizations. You must also have write permission in the directory tree: /var/svc/manifest/application/SUNWappserver. Usually, the superuser has both of these permissions. Additionally, Oracle Solaris 10 administration commands such as svccfg, svcs, and auths must be available in the PATH.

If a particular GlassFish Server domain should not have default user privileges, modify the manifest of the service and reimport the service.

  1. Create the service by using the create-service(1) subcommand.

  2. After the service is created, enable the service by using the svacdm enable command.

    For example:

    svacdm enable /appserver/domains/domain1

Example 3–11 Creating a Service to Restart a Domain Automatically on Oracle Solaris 10

This example creates a service for the default domain on a system that is running Oracle Solaris.

asadmin> create-service
The Service was created successfully. Here are the details:
Name of the service:application/GlassFish/domain1
Type of the service:Domain
Configuration location of the service:/home/gfuser/glassfish-installations
Manifest file location on the system:/var/svc/manifest/application
You have created the service but you need to start it yourself.
Here are the most typical Solaris commands of interest:
* /usr/bin/svcs -a | grep domain1 // status
* /usr/sbin/svcadm enable domain1 // start
* /usr/sbin/svcadm disable domain1 // stop
* /usr/sbin/svccfg delete domain1 // uninstall
Command create-service executed successfully

As you administer your service, the following Oracle Solaris commands are useful: auths, smf_security, svcadm, svccfg, rbac, useradd, and usermod.
