Using the sysconfig Command

If you need to change the configuration at a later time, you can use the sysconfig configure command. The same command is used to reconfigure the system's global zone or an Oracle Solaris instance in a non-global zone. This configuration can occur either non-interactively or interactively. A non-interactive reconfiguration uses an existing configuration profile whose specifications in the content are applied to the system. An interactive reconfiguration uses the System Configuration Interactive (SCI) tool to create a new configuration, and the specifications overwrite the current profile.

To use the non-interactive method, first ensure that a configuration profile already exists whose specifications will replace the current configuration. Then type:

$ sysconfig configure -c configuration-profile

Note -  More examples of the use of the sysconfig command are available in Defining AI Client System Configuration Parameters.

The following command specifies that the system be configured using the existing system configuration profile named myprofile.xml.

# sysconfig configure -c myprofile.xml
