and this SMF may be coll and fancy, but it's a horrible headache for a "normal unix" sysadmin.
Why can't it just be simple files? Oh no, we need a frontend to dump in and out unreadable XML data.
Same goes qith AIX and it's internal database hiding stuff from the users.
So finally every unix and linux has it's own, incompatible "I want to do horrible registry like windows" hack just because it's cool and hip, but it's not useable.
Does systemd present a virtual filesystem where you can edit text files with vi and get the thing configured? That would be one idea with which I could still use my beloved broadcast sed commands to change configs on 100 servers.
