I created 7144647 sysconfig insisting on input files having .xml suffix is unnecessary The reason I phrased it this way is this (from another e-mail thread on a different list): > sysconfig also requires the .xml extension for files input to it but doesn't > require it when it creates an XML profile.

Maybe the better answer is for zoneadm and sysconfig > to just add .xml to whatever it feeds to SMF. I think the simpler way of putting is: requiring an .xml extension when scanning a directory is logical, requiring an .xml extension when I explicitly provide the name of a file to be parsed seems unnecessary. -- Will Fiveash Oracle Solaris Software Engineer Austin, TX, USA _______________________________________________ zones-discuss mailing list email@example.com
