Updating Property Values in the /etc/system File

Starting with the Oracle Solaris 11 OS, do not make manual changes to the /etc/system file. This file is automatically generated upon reboot when files in the /etc/system.d directory specify tuning property values.

How to Add or Modify a Tuning Property Value

  1. Search for the tuning property name in the existing /etc/system file and in the /etc/system.d files.

    For example, to specify a value for the vds:vd_volume_force_slice property, determine whether the property is already set.

    # grep 'vds:vd_volume_force_slice' /etc/system /etc/system.d/*
  2. Update the property value:
    • If the property is found in one of the /etc/system.d files, update the property value in the existing file.
    • If the property is found in the /etc/system file or it is not found, create a file in the /etc/system.d directory with a name such as the following example:
      /etc/system.d/com.company-name:ldoms-config
