Creating a Custom SC Manifest

The system configuration manifest (SC manifest) specifies client system configuration as a set of configuration parameters in the form of an SMF (Service Management Facility) profile. The SC manifest sets SMF properties for appropriate SMF services.

An SMF profile carrying the system configuration is applied during the first boot of the system after installation. SMF services responsible for particular configuration areas process SMF properties and configure the system accordingly.
