Last updated on MAY 30, 2017

Applies to:

Solaris Cluster - Version 3.2 to 3.3 U2 [Release 3.2 to 3.3]
Solaris Cluster Geographic Edition - Version 3.2 to 3.3 U2 [Release 3.2 to 3.3]
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)
Oracle Solaris on x86-64 (64-bit)

Goal

How to disable cacao the SMF service "svc:/application/management/common-agent-container-1:default" to persist reboots in Solaris Cluster 3.x environment?

Solaris Cluster require this service for Solaris Cluster Manager (SC3.x), cluster check utility, Data Service Wizards (also in clsetup), and telemetry service. If you have snmp configured cacao is generating snmp traps for Solaris Cluster. Therefore this service should not be disabled permanently in Solaris Cluster environment.

Also other applications can require this service.

 

The normal approach to disable this service to persist reboots does not work in Solaris Cluster.
Normal procedure:

This dependency will startup the cacao service when rebooted. Which is the expected behavior.
