contributed service manifests
By Liane Praza-Oracle on Feb 10, 2005
Folks are starting to write service manifests for various pieces of software. Figured it might be useful to collect a few here. If I've missed something useful (and I'm certain I have), feel free to drop me a line and it'll be included.
So far, one of my favorites is an article by Peter Tribble and Geoff Gibbs about creating an smf service for postfix. Coolest part is that they actually noticed what we intended and created postfix as an instance of the
svc:/network/smtp service. It contains a great step-by-step set of instructions in addition to the manifests and method files. Nice.
Chris Gerhard posted this description for postgres.
Michael Hunter contributed an entire package for freeradius to blastwave including a service manifest if you're running it on Solaris 10. If you're a Solaris user who hasn't heard of blastwave, check it out. It's an invaluable resource.
