Administering Services

This chapter describes:

  • How to start, stop, and restart a service

  • How to reread service configuration

  • How to configure the system to notify you of FMA events or service state transitions

The command that changes service state is svcadm. The svcadm command operates on a service instance. If you provide a service name with no instance specified, and that service has only a single instance, svcadm operates on that instance. If you provide a service name with no instance specified, and that service has multiple instances, or if you specify any other pattern that matches multiple instances, svcadm issues an error message.
