System Configuration Interactive Tool

The System Configuration Interactive (SCI) Tool enables you to specify configuration parameters for your newly installed Oracle Solaris 11.2 instance.

sysconfig configure with no –c profile.xml option will unconfigure the system, then bring up SCI tool to query the administrator and write the configuration to /etc/svc/profile/site/scit_profile.xml. The tool will then configure the system with this information.

sysconfig create-profile queries the administrator and creates an SMF profile file in /system/volatile/scit_profile.xml. Parameters include system hostname, time zone, user and root accounts, name services.

To navigate in the tool:

  • Use the function keys listed at the bottom of each screen to move through the screens and to perform other operations. If your keyboard does not have function keys, or if the keys do not respond, press the Esc key. The legend at the bottom of the screen changes to show the Esc keys for navigation and other functions.

  • Use the up and down arrow keys to change the selection or to move between input fields.
