Service Management Facility Changes
The DNS, NIS, and LDAP services are now managed by the Service
Management Facility. Administrative actions on these services, such as enabling, disabling, or restarting, can
be performed by using the svcadm command. The service's status can be queried
by using the svcs command. For an overview of SMF, refer to Chapter 16, Managing Services (Overview), in System Administration Guide: Basic Administration.
Also refer to the svcadm(1M) and svcs(1) man pages for more details.
Information specific to each service described in this book can be found in
the following sections.
