You can run the SCI Tool to generate a new system configuration profile based on the configuration specifications entered in the SCI Tool panels. The default location for the new profile is /system/volatile/profile/sc_profile.xml.
To create a new system configuration profile, use the sysconfig create-profile command. A profile will be created but the configuration will not be applied to the system.
The SCI Tool creates the new system configuration profile based on the specifications that you provide in the SCI Tool panels. The new profile is stored in the default location. You can use that new profile to configure a system, as shown in the following example.
# sysconfig configure -g system -c /etc/system/profile/sysconfig/sc_profile.xmlExample 6-7 Creating and Using a Profile
The –g option is used to specify a specific functional grouping that should be configured. In this example, the full system will be configured. For a list of the functional groupings, see Table 6–1. The following example creates a profile and then uses the profile to non-interactively reconfigure the system.
# sysconfig create-profile -o /tmp/myprofile.xml # sysconfig configure -g system -c /tmp/myprofile.xmlExample 6-8 Creating and Using a Profile to Configure Functional Groupings
The following example creates a profile for the network and naming_services functional groups. Then the profile is used to reconfigure the functional groupings non-interactively.
# sysconfig create-profile -g network,naming_services -o /tmp/myprofile.xml # sysconfig configure -g network,naming_services -c /tmp/myprofile.xml
