Chapter 5

NWAM Profile Administration (Tasks)

This chapter describes how to use the netadm command to administer these profiles: NCPs, locations, ENMs, and WLANs. The netadm command can also be used to administer NCUs, which are the individual configuration objects that make up an NCP, and to interact with the NWAM daemon (nwamd) in the absence of the NWAM GUI. For more information about using the netadm command, see the netadm(1M)man page.

The following topics are covered in this chapter:

For information about creating profiles and configuring their properties by using the netcfg command, see Chapter 4, NWAM Profile Configuration (Tasks).

For information about how to interact with the NWAM configuration and how to manage your network configuration from the desktop by using the NWAM GUI, see Chapter 6, About the NWAM Graphical User Interface.

For an introduction to NWAM, see Chapter 2, Introduction to NWAM.

For more information about all of the NWAM components, as well as NWAM configuration details, see Chapter 3, NWAM Configuration and Administration (Overview).
