Managing Configuration of Multiple Systems

The following steps summarize how to manage configuration of multiple systems:

  1. Create SMF profiles that specify the services you want enabled and the values of their properties. Profiles can add and set properties for existing services and instances and specify new service instances. Profiles can specify almost anything that a manifest can specify.

  2. Create IPS packages to install those profiles in the /etc/svc/profile/enterprise or /etc/svc/profile/site directories on each system.

    • A profile that describes configuration for all systems in your enterprise goes in the /etc/svc/profile/enterprise directory.

    • A profile that describes configuration for systems in a particular location or site goes in the /etc/svc/profile/site directory.

    • A profile that describes configuration for a single Oracle Solaris system goes in the /etc/svc/profile/node directory.

    See Repository Layers for descriptions of these profile directories and configuration layers.
