NAME
       mms - MMS service overview

DESCRIPTION
       MMS  is a distributed removable media management system. It is based on the standard, IEEE
       1244, Media Management System (MMS).

       The current implementation of MMS manages tapes and cartridges in a Sun	StorageTek  ACSLS
       tape  library  and emulated tapes on a file system. MMS is capable of sharing drives among
       multiple hosts. An important feature of MMS is that it provides a uniform  and  consistent
       tape interface to its client applications.

       MMS  consists  of  a  media  manager (MM) which manages the entire MMS system. Information
       about the system is maintained by MM in a database.

       Every library managed by MMS has an active library manager (LM). An  LM	provides  library
       access and mounting service to MMS.

       A drive managed by MMS has a drive manager (DM) on each host that has access to the drive.
       A DM provides device specific operations. A DM also provides label processing. The current
       implementation supports only ANSI labels.

       MMS  client applications request MM to mount and unmount cartridges and process them after
       they are mounted. Applications use the Media Management Protocol (MMP) to make requests. A
       library of client application functions is available.

       The  Solaris implementation of the MMS uses the mmsinit(1M) command to configure and start
       the MMS service and the mmsadm(1M) command to list and set parameters required by the ser-
       vice.

       The MMS service instances, as reported by svcs(1), are:

       mms:wcr

	   watcher

       mms:db

	   Media Manager PostgreSQL database

       mms:mm

	   Media Manager

       The MMS service RBAC (see rbac(5)) authorizations are:

	   o	  solaris.smf.manage.mms

	   o	  solaris.smf.value.mms

       The  following  are the MMS service configuration data accessible through the service man-
       agement facility (see smf(5)):

       config/type

	   Host is media manager or watcher only. Valid values are server or client.

       manager/host

	   Host name where the media manager is running.

       manager/port

	   Port the media manager is using.

       ssl/enabled

	   Media Manager is using SSL. Valid values are true or false.	Note  the  Media  Manager
	   needs an SSL RSA certificate and Diffie-Hellman parameters must be 'true'.

       ssl/verify

	   Media  Manager-only value, determines whether two-way authentication is enabled, which
	   requires all Media Manager clients to have SSL RSA certificate. Valid values  are  are
	   true for two-way authentication and false for one-way authentication.

       ssl/cert_file

	   Name  of  file that contains the SSL RSA certificate, private key, and RSA certificate
	   chain.

       ssl/pass_file

	   Name of file for the private key password phrase if the RSA certificate is encrypted.

       ssl/dh_file

	   Media Manager-only value, name of file that stores the Diffie-Hellman parameters.

       ssl/crl_file

	   Name of optional CRL file.

       ssl/cipher

	   Optional cipher change from EDH-RSA-DES-CBC3-SHA.

       ssl/peer_file

	   Optional client only, name of file that stores the media manager certificate. The cer-
	   tificate  is  checked  against  the certificate returned by SSL_get_peer_certificate()
	   function.

       The following are the MMS Database fault management resource identifier (FMRI)  configura-
       tion data:

       postgresql/bin

	   Directory  where the PostgreSQL binaries are located. The directory is specific to the
	   version of PostgreSQL qualified for use by the MMS software.

       postgresql/data

	   Directory where the PostgreSQL database is located. The default location  is   a  ver-
	   sion-specific subdirectory of /var/mms/db.

       The following are the MMS Media Manager FMRI configuration data:

       db/host

	   For future use. Set to localhost.

       db/port

	   Port number to use for PostgreSQL login. The default value is 7656.

       db/user

	   PostgreSQL user name. The default user name is postgres.

       db/name

	   Name of PostgreSQL database to which to connect. The default value is mms.

       option/trace

	   Optional. The Media Manager trace level before connecting to the PostgreSQL database.

       option/db_reconnect_max_retry

	   Number of times to wait for the database to accept a Media Manager connection.

       option/db_reconnect_timeout

	   Number of seconds to wait  between reconnect tries.

       The following are the MMS Watcher FMRI configuration data:

       option/ssi_path

	   Path to ACSLS SSI daemon.

       option/libapi_path

	   Path to ACSLS API library.
