inetadm(8)

Name

inetadm - observe or configure inetd-controlled services

Synopsis

inetadm 
inetadm -?
inetadm -p
inetadm -l {FMRI | pattern}
inetadm -e {FMRI | pattern}
inetadm -d {FMRI | pattern}
inetadm -m {FMRI | pattern}... {name=value}...
inetadm -M {name=value}...

Description

The inetadm utility provides the following capabilities for inetd-managed SMF services:

  • Provides a list of all such services installed.

  • Lists the services' properties and values.

  • Allows enabling and disabling of services.

  • Allows modification of the services'property values, as well as the default values provided by inetd.

See smf(7) for a description of an SMF service.

With no arguments, inetadm lists all services under inetd(8) control, including such attributes as their current run state and whether or not they are enabled.

Options

For options taking one or more FMRI operands (see smf(7) for a description of an FMRI), if the operand specifies a service (instead of a service instance), and that service has only a single instance, inetadm operates on that instance.

If a service name is supplied and it contains more than one instances or a pattern is supplied and and it matches more than one instance, a warning message is displayed and that operand is ignored.

For those options taking name=value parameters, a description of each of the possible names and the allowed values is found in the inetd(8) man page.

The following options are supported:

–?

Display a usage message.

–p

Lists all default inet service property values provided by inetd in the form of name=value pairs. If the value is of boolean type, it is listed as TRUE or FALSE.

–l {FMRI | pattern}...

List all properties for the specified service instances as name=value pairs. In addition, if the property value is inherited from the default value provided by inetd, the name= value pair is identified by the token (default). Property inheritance occurs when properties do not have a specified service instance default.

–e {FMRI | pattern}...

Enable the specified service instances.

–d {FMRI | pattern}...

Disable the specified service instances.

–m {FMRI | pattern}...{name=value}...

Change the values of the specified properties of the identified service instances. Properties are specified as whitespace-separated name=value pairs. To remove an instance-specific value and accept the default value for a property, simply specify the property without a value, for example, name= .

–M {name=value}...

Change the values of the specified inetd default properties. Properties are specified as whitespace-separated name=value pairs.

Examples

Example 1 Displaying Properties for a Service

The following command displays the properties for the spray service.

# inetadm -l network/rpc/spray:default
SCOPE    NAME=VALUE
         name="sprayd"
         endpoint_type="tli"
         proto="datagram_v"
         isrpc=TRUE
         rpc_low_version=1
         rpc_high_version=1
         wait=TRUE
         exec="/usr/lib/netsvc/spray/rpc.sprayd"
         user="root"
default  bind_addr=""
default  bind_fail_max=-1
default  bind_fail_interval=-1
default  max_con_rate=-1
default  max_copies=-1
default  con_rate_offline=-1
default  failrate_cnt=40
default  failrate_interval=60
default  inherit_env=TRUE
default  tcp_trace=FALSE
default  tcp_wrappers=FALSE
default  connection_backlog=10
Example 2 Displaying Default Properties

The following command displays default properties.

# inetadm -p
NAME=VALUE
bind_addr=""
bind_fail_max=-1
bind_fail_interval=-1
max_con_rate=-1
max_copies=-1
con_rate_offline=-1
failrate_cnt=40
failrate_interval=60
inherit_env=TRUE
tcp_trace=FALSE
tcp_wrappers=FALSE
default  connection_backlog=10
Example 3 Changing Property Values for a Service

The following command changes rpc_high_version to 3 and tcp_trace to TRUE for the spray service.

# inetadm -m network/rpc/spray:default \
         rpc_high_version=3 tcp_trace=TRUE
# inetadm -l network/rpc/spray:default
SCOPE    NAME=VALUE
         name="sprayd"
         endpoint_type="tli"
         proto="datagram_v"
         isrpc=TRUE
         rpc_low_version=1
         rpc_high_version=3
         wait=TRUE
         exec="/usr/lib/netsvc/spray/rpc.sprayd"
         user="root"
default  bind_addr=""
default  bind_fail_max=-1
default  bind_fail_interval=-1
default  max_con_rate=-1
default  max_copies=-1
default  con_rate_offline=-1
default  failrate_cnt=40
default  failrate_interval=60
default  inherit_env=TRUE
         tcp_trace=TRUE
default  tcp_wrappers=FALSE
default  connection_backlog=10
