Notes

The idmapd service is managed by the service management facility (SMF). The service identifier for the idmapd service is svc:/system/idmap.

Use the svcadm command to perform administrative actions on this service, such as enabling, disabling, or restarting the service. These actions require the solaris.smf.manage.idmap authorization. Use the svcs command to query the service's status.

The functionality of this daemon might change in a future release of the Solaris operating system.
