SMF - Adding instances to existing manifest

I have a default, sun supplied, apache2 install on solaris10. It's running fine, everything's great. I'm looking to add another instance, fairly happy with how to do that apart from one thing - the SMF manifest.

Can i just edit the XML file sun supplied for the default apache2 and add in details of my new instance?

How do i tell SMF to pick up my changed XML manifest file and register the new apache2 instance?

Many thanks!

Do not edit sun supplied manifests. They will be replaced by updated packages and/or patches.

Make a copy of the existing one with a different name for the file and service group etc. Then import it with
svccfg import <filename>
