Lists the actions that you can perform on the operating system.
You can manage an operating system in one of two modes: agent managed or agentless managed. The management mode determines the features that are enabled for your operating system.
Agent managed is the more robust management mode because the Agent Controller enables a greater level of communication with the Proxy Controller and Enterprise Controller than the agentless managed operating systems. You can use the features and perform the actions described in this chapter with an agentless managed operating system, but OS update functionality requires an agent managed operating system. You can manage your operating systems by installing an Agent Controller on the OS or by using SSH to perform tasks.
After you manage your assets, you can perform the following actions:
Monitor your physical and virtual operating systems.
View OS utilization for Oracle Solaris and Linux operating systems.
Manage Oracle Solaris boot environments.
Update or patch operating systems. See Update Operating Systems.
Provision or upgrade Oracle Solaris and Linux operating systems. See Provision Operating Systems.
To perform actions, such as OS provisioning, updating, and managing boot environments, on an Oracle Solaris 11 operating system, the Enterprise Controller and Proxy Controller must be installed on an Oracle Solaris 11 operating system.
