Using Tivoli Storage Manager's client with Solaris 10 SMF

Download the files dsmc-sched and dsmc-sched.xml, then follow this procedure as root (or RBAC equivalent):

# cp dsmc-sched /lib/svc/method
# chmod 555 /lib/svc/method/dsmc-sched
# mkdir /var/svc/manifest/application/backup
# cp dsmc-sched.xml /var/svc/manifest/application/backup
# svccfg import /var/svc/manifest/application/backup/dsmc-sched.xml
# svcadm enable dsmc-sched
# svcs -p dsmc-sched
STATE          STIME    FMRI
online         Apr_04   svc:/application/backup/dsmc-sched:default
               Apr_04        239 dsmc
# ps -fp 239
     UID   PID  PPID   C    STIME TTY         TIME CMD
    root   239     1   0   Apr 04 ?           3:25 /usr/bin/dsmc sched
You can prove that SMF is doing its job by killing the dsmc process. It should restart automatically.
