Adding Tools to the Solaris Management Console

This section describes how to add legacy tools or unbundled tools to the console. If you want to add authentication to these tools, see Managing RBAC in System Administration Guide: Security Services.

How to Add a Legacy Tool to a Toolbox

A legacy tool is any application that was not designed specifically as a Solaris management tool. You can add three types of legacy tool applications to a console toolbox: X applications, command-line interface, and HTML. Each tool you add to a toolbox can then be launched from the Solaris Management Console.

  1. Become superuser or assume an equivalent role.
  2. Start the Solaris Management Console Toolbox Editor, if necessary.
    # /usr/sadm/bin/smc edit &
  3. Open the toolbox to which you want to add the legacy application.

    The toolbox selected is opened in the Toolbox Editor.

  4. Select the node in the toolbox to which you want to add the legacy application.

    A legacy application can be added to the top node of a toolbox or to another folder.

  5. Click Action->Add Legacy Application.

    The first panel of the Legacy Application Wizard: General is displayed.

  6. Follow the instructions in the wizard.
  7. Save the toolbox in the Toolbox Editor.

How to Install an Unbundled Tool

Follow this procedure if you want to add a new tool package that can be launched from the Solaris Management Console.

  1. Become superuser or assume an equivalent role.
  2. Install the new tool package.
    # pkgadd ABCDtool
  3. Restart the console so that it recognizes the new tool.
    1. Stop the console server.
      # /etc/init.d/init.wbem stop
    2. Start the console server.
      # /etc/init.d/init.wbem start
  4. Start the console to verify that the new tool is displayed.

    For more information, see How to Start the Console as Superuser or as a Role.
