Creating an SMF Manifest File

Create an SMF manifest file that defines a transient service that executes a script.

Example 13-2 Sample SMF Service Manifest

The following file is the SMF manifest file for the first-boot-script-svc service: first-boot-script-svc-manifest.xml. This service is enabled by default and does not restart. The script that the service runs in this example is /opt/site/

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE service_bundle SYSTEM "/usr/share/lib/xml/dtd/service_bundle.dtd.1">
<service_bundle type='manifest' name='first-boot-script:site-first-boot-script-svc'>

    <create_default_instance enabled='true' />
    <single_instance />

<!-- Run the script late in the startup sequence after first boot. -->
<dependency name='multi-user' grouping='require_all' restart_on='none' type='service'>
    <service_fmri value='svc:/milestone/multi-user:default' />

        <method_credential user='root'/>


<property_group name='startd' type='framework'>
    <propval name='duration' type='astring' value='transient' />
