Configuration Management

Oracle Solaris 11 includes a number of different technologies related to configuration management. The Service Management Facility (SMF) provides administrators with the ability to configure services running on a system with seamless configuration management through system upgrades. Puppet has been included in Oracle Solaris 11 to allow administrators automated configuration enforcement across systems, with enhanced support for a number of new resource types to support Oracle Solaris technologies. The Remote Administration Daemon provides secure, remote administrative access to an Oracle Solaris system, including the ability for developers to write programmatic administrative interfaces.
