Disabling SMF for NFS daemons on Solaris 10

Disabling SMF for NFS daemons on Solaris 10

On Solaris 10, you must disable the Service Management Facility (SMF) for the NFS daemons.

UNIX start-up scripts and configuration files previously performed these functions. SMF maintains the Service Configuration Repository to store persistent configuration information as well as runtime data for all the services. All NFS daemons (nfsd, mountd, etc.) are now controlled by SMF. To keep these daemons under VCS control, modify the configuration repository to disable the SMF framework for NFS daemons.

You must invoke the following commands before bringing the NFS agent online or the agents returns an UNKNOWN state.

To keep nfsd and mountd daemons under VCS control, on all cluster nodes:

  1. Set the auto_enable property to false.

    # svccfg -s nfs/server setprop "application/auto_enable = false"
  2. Refresh the SMF configuration repository.

    # svcadm refresh nfs/server
  3. Disable SMF.

    # svcadm disable svc:/network/nfs/server:default
  4. Run svcs -a | grep -i nfs command and review its output to make sure that SMF for nfsd and mountd is disabled.

    # svcs -a | grep -i nfs
    
    disabled May_29 svc:/network/nfs/server:default

To keep nfsmapid daemon under VCS control, on all cluster nodes:

  1. Set the auto_enable property to false.

    # svccfg -s nfs/mapid setprop "application/auto_enable = false"
  2. Refresh the SMF configuration repository.

    # svcadm refresh nfs/mapid
  3. Disable SMF.

    # svcadm disable svc:/network/nfs/mapid:default
  4. Run svcs -a | grep -i mapid command and review its output to make sure that SMF for nfsmapid is disabled.

    # svcs -a | grep -i mapid
    
    disabled May_29 svc:/network/nfs/mapid:default

To keep the statd daemon under VCS control, on all cluster nodes:

  1. Set the auto_enable property to false.

    # svccfg -s nfs/status setprop "application/auto_enable = false"
  2. Refresh the SMF configuration repository.

    # svcadm refresh nfs/status
  3. Disable SMF.

    # svcadm disable svc:/network/nfs/status:default
  4. Run svcs -a | grep -i nfs command and review its output to make sure that SMF for statd is disabled.

    # svcs -a | grep -i nfs
    
    	disabled May_29 svc:/network/nfs/status:default

To keep lockd daemon under VCS control, on all cluster nodes:

  1. Set the auto_enable property to false.

    # svccfg -s nfs/nlockmgr setprop "application/auto_enable = false"
  2. Refresh the SMF configuration repository.

    # svcadm refresh nfs/nlockmgr
  3. Disable SMF.

    # svcadm disable svc:/network/nfs/nlockmgr:default
  4. Run svcs -a | grep -i nfs command and review its output to make sure that SMF for nlockmgr is disabled.

    # svcs -a | grep -i nlockmgr
    
    	disabled May_29 svc:/network/nfs/nlockmgr:default
