Identity Manager as a Solaris 10 SMF service

I use Solaris 10 to demonstrate the Sun Java System Identity Manager. Setting up Identity Manager on Solaris 10 was easy, it had everything I needed ... a JSP/Servlet container and an RDBMS. Solaris 10 had Apache/Tomcat and MySQL already installed.

By default, Apache/Tomcat and MySQL used traditional start-up scripts. I decided to create a Solaris 10 SMF service for Identity Manager. I ended up creating two services, one for the MySQL database and the other for Apache/Tomcat. The Identity Manager service (idmgr) has a dependancy on the MySQL service (mysql).

Documenting my Solaris 10 SMF experiences evolved from my journal "chicken scratchings" to emailed notes to finally a technical whitepaper. The whitepaper was an internal only document. Thanks to a bunch of great co-workers we got it posted as a BigAdmin Feature Article. You can get it here.

If you're thinking about creating your own Solaris 10 service, take a look at the article. It includes step-by-step instructions and manifests that can be modified for your specific service.

Scott, Do you know if Greg Field is stilling with Sun in Australia? He wrote a program called 'ned' which was a Primos-like editor for Unix. In my case, for AIX. I have a couple of questions for him. Any help in finding Greg will be appreciated. Thanks, Denny Watkins Director Computer Services Morningside College 1501 Morningside Ave Sioux City, Ia 51106-1717 Phone: 1-712-274-5250 Email: watkins@morningside.edu
