Managing Serial Ports With the Service Access Facility (Tasks)

This chapter describes how to manage serial port services using the Service Access Facility (SAF).

Also included in this chapter is information on how to perform console administration with the Service Management Facility (SMF).

Note - The SAF and SMF are two different tools in the Solaris OS. Starting with the Solaris 10 release, ttymon invocations on the system console are now managed by SMF. The SAF tool is still used to administer terminals, modems, and other network devices.

This is a list of the overview information in this chapter.

For information on the step-by-step procedures that are associated with managing serial ports , see the following:

For reference information about the SAF, see Service Access Facility Administration (Reference).
