|Installing Oracle Solaris 11 Systems Oracle Solaris 11 Information Library|
Upon rebooting after an installation from a LiveCD or after a text installation, anonymous system configuration information is uploaded to Oracle Support by the Oracle Configuration Manager. My Oracle Support receives information about the installed system's configuration, but does not receive any of your customer information.
Specifically, during the first reboot, an Oracle Configuration Manager service runs for the first time and attempts to register the system with the registration server. If this registration succeeds, an upload of the anonymous configuration information is performed. Also, upon successful registration, an internal scheduler is started. Thereafter, configuration data is uploaded under control of the scheduler. On subsequent reboots, configuration data is not sent as part of service startup. The service recognizes that the system is already registered and simply launches the scheduler. Scheduling may be tuned by using /usr/sbin/emCCR. See the emCCR(1M) man page and the Oracle Configuration Manager Installation and Administration Guide.
When performing an installation from a LiveCD or a text installation, you have the following options.
Allow the default anonymous registration of your configuration information to occur automatically.
Disable Oracle Configuration Manager functions at the end of the installation, before rebooting the system.
For disabling instructions, see the following:
Note - If you are using an install server for purposes such as creating an installation image and burning it to media or initiating a text installation over the network, you have different options for administering the Oracle Configuration Manager. See Chapter 14, Setting Up Oracle Configuration Manager For Use By AI Client Systems.
Whether you chose to allow or cancel the default anonymous registration, you can still choose to register or re-register your system later with the Oracle Configuration Manager.
If you already registered anonymously, you may choose to provide your My Oracle Solaris (MOS) account information as part of registration later in order to facilitate future support. When customer configuration data is uploaded on a regular basis, customer support representatives can analyze this data and provide better service. For example, when you log a service request, the support representative can associate the configuration data directly with that service request. The customer support representative can then view the list of your systems and solve problems accordingly.
If you cancelled the default registration, you may choose to register anonymously or to perform a full customer registration later.
If automatic registration was unable to complete due to a network proxy requirement, you may register anonymously or with your MOS account information.
You can register by using the configCCR utility (/usr/sbin/configCCR) in interactive mode. After completing registration, you can enable the service as follows:
# svcadm enable system/ocm
