Use one of the following methods to create a system configuration profile:
Run the interactive configuration tool and save the output to a file. The following command creates a valid profile in sc.xml from responses you enter interactively:
# sysconfig create-profile -o sc.xml
See Creating a System Configuration Profile Using the SCI Tool for information about using the configuration tool to produce a profile file.
Create the system configuration profile manually, using the property specifications shown in Specifying Configuration in a System Configuration Profile and Example System Configuration Profiles.
Include the following lines in every system configuration profile:
<!DOCTYPE service_bundle SYSTEM "/usr/share/lib/xml/dtd/service_bundle.dtd.1"> <service_bundle type="profile" name="sysconfig"> <!-- service, property_group, property, and propval specifications --> </service_bundle>
If you specify a service or property that does not apply, that specification is ignored.
Do not specify any particular property more than one time.
A derived manifest script can create a system configuration profile when the script is run. See Example 10–6.
A system configuration profile can express property and attribute values in two ways. One profile can use both methods.
Values can be entered explicitly before the profile is added to the install service using the property specifications shown in this chapter.
A system configuration profile can include variables that are replaced with valid values when the profile is used to install a client system. See Using System Configuration Profile Templates.
