Solaris 10 introduced Service Management Facility (SMF). System services like network services (ftp, telnet, rlogin, etc.), file system services, security services, device services, print services, cron services, etc., are implemented as SMF services. Also, the SMF management framework is designed to support third-party software application services, including web services and database services (such as starting an Oracle® database daemon).
Before Solaris 10, the same services were started using file /etc/inittab or using shell scripts from the /etc/rcX.d directories. Those methods are still supported with Solaris 10.
When using ASM on single instance it requires ocssd daemon and it is started from /etc/inittab at boot time. Also there are scripts under /etc/rcX.d directories. On some installations, ocssd can not be started at boot time, and this document presents the steps followed to convert init.cssd as a SMF services.
