Enabling and Disabling the Pools Facility

You can enable and disable the resource pools and dynamic resource pools services on your system by using the svcadm command described in the svcadm(1M) man page.

You can also use the pooladm command described in the pooladm(1M) man page to perform the following tasks:

  • Enable the pools facility so that pools can be manipulated

  • Disable the pools facility so that pools cannot be manipulated

Note - When a system is upgraded, if the resource pools framework is enabled and an /etc/pooladm.conf file exists, the pools service is enabled and the configuration contained in the file is applied to the system.
