|Transitioning From Oracle Solaris 10 to Oracle Solaris 11.1 Oracle Solaris 11.1 Information Library|
The following system configuration and SMF features are supported:
Oracle Auto Service Request utility – This feature can be used by customers who have a valid My Oracle Support account. See System Registration and System Support Changes.
SMF administrative layers – Information for recording the source of properties, property groups, instances, and services has been added to the SMF repository. This information enables you to determine which settings are administrative customizations and which settings were delivered with Oracle Solaris by a manifest. See SMF Administrative Changes.
SMF manifest creation tool – The svcbundle command can be used to generate SMF manifests, as well as profiles. The manifest is specified by using multiple -s options. To generate a manifest, you must specify the service-name and start-method command options. See svcbundle(1M).
System Configuration Interactive (SCI) utility – Uses SMF to centralize configuration information. The sysconfig utility replaces the sys-unconfig and sysidtool utilities that are used in Oracle Solaris 10. You can run the sysconfig utility interactively by using the SCI utility or in an automated manner by creating an SC configuration profile. See System Configuration Tools Changes.
System console and terminal device management – The system console and locally connected terminal devices are now managed by SMF. The sac and saf programs for managing console services and terminals are no longer available.
System, network, and name services configuration migration to SMF – Several aspects of system and network configuration, including configuration that was previously stored in various files within the /etc directory, is now stored in an SMF repository. Migrating configuration data to SMF service properties enables the delivery of a uniform, extensible architecture for system configuration that provides customers with a more complete capability for managing system configuration. See System Configuration Changes and Migration of System Configuration to SMF.
System registration – Oracle Configuration Manager collects configuration information and then anonymously uploads it to the Oracle repository during the first reboot of a system after an installation. This information is analyzed and then used by Oracle to provide better service to customers. In Oracle Solaris 10, the Auto Registration feature performs a similar function. Starting with the Oracle Solaris 10 1/13 release, Oracle Configuration Manager replaces the Auto Registration feature. See System Registration and System Support Changes.
