sharectl - configure and manage file sharing service SYNOPSIS
sharectl [-h] sharectl status [-h] [protocol] sharectl get [-h] [-p property]... protocol sharectl set [-h] [-p property=value]... protocol DESCRIPTION
The sharectl command operates on file-sharing protocols, such as NFS. The command sets the client and server operational properties, takes and restores configuration snapshots, and gets status of the protocol service. The get and set subcommands (see below) require root privileges or that you assume the Primary Administrator role. A non-privileged user can change the Solaris CIFS client's persistent settings when granted the SMBFS Management rights profile in the /etc/user_attr file. See user_attr(4) and rbac(5). An authorized user can use sharectl to set global values for Solaris CIFS server properties in the Solaris server management facility. See smb(4). OPTIONS
The following options are supported: -h Displays usage message. -p property[=value] Specifies a property. See "Subcommands," below. Subcommands sharectl supports the subcommands described below. The form of a sharectl command is: # sharectl subcommand [option] get [-p property] protocol Get the property values for the specified protocol. If no -p option is provided, get all the properties for the specified protocol. For NFS, properties correspond to entries in the /etc/default/nfs file. See nfs(4). set [-p property=value]... protocol Set properties for the specified file sharing protocol. status [protocol] Display status of the specified protocol, or, if no protocol is specified, of all file-sharing protocols. EXAMPLES
Example 1 Setting a Property The following command sets the minimum version of the server NFS protocol to version 3. % sharectl -p server_versmin=3 nfs Example 2 Getting Properties The following command gets the properties for the NFS protocol. % sharectl get nfs lockd_listen_backlog=32 lockd_servers=20 lockd_retransmit_timeout=5 grace_period=90 servers=16 server_versmin=2 server_versmax=4 max_connections=-1 The following command gets the value of the grace_period property for the NFS protocol. % sharectl get -p grace_period nfs grace_period=90 Example 3 Obtaining Status The following command obtains the status of all file-sharing protocols on a system. % sharectl status nfs enabled Example 4 Configuring Global Settings The following command shows how an authorized user can use sharectl commands to configure global settings for the environment in the service management facility (SMF). See nsmbrc(4) for a description of the example environment, See smf(5) for a description of the SMF. # sharectl set -p section=default -p workgroup=SALES -p timeout=5 smbfs # sharectl set -p section=FSERVER -p smbfs # sharectl set -p section=RSERVER -p workgroup=REMGROUP -p smbfs # sharectl set -p section=RSERVER:george -p timeout=30 smbfs # sharectl set -p section="SSERV:*:POKY" -p -p timeout=25 smbfs Example 5 Displaying Current Settings The following command shows how an authorized user can use the sharectl get command to view the global settings for smbfs in the SMF. The values shown are those set by the previous example. % # sharectl get smbfs [default] workgroup=SALES timeout=5 [FSERVER] [RSERVER] workgroup=REMGROUP [RSERVER:george] timeout=30 [SSERV:*:POKY] timeout=25 EXIT STATUS
