Creating an SMF service (Part 1)

This is Part 1 of an attempt to document creating a new service in SMF.


smf(5) and other related manpages


BigAdmin SelfHealing Site

BigAdmin Developer SMF Intro

BigAdmin SMF QuickStart Solaris 10 Admin Guide

Ben Rockwood's SMF Manifest Cheatsheet

The goal is to create a SMF manifest to start a monitoring daemon. (maybe one of those mugs as well)

Before going doing much poking around. I was expecting that I would create a binary instance and a script instance. I would like to be able to have a single manifest that contains all of the services/instances/bits I need.

There are two complementary functions a binary and a script. Recently the script has been modified it now has two operation modes. A "Full" mode and a compatability mode.

I will try to document the problems I run into and the solutions I find.
