set environment variables in smf manifests
If you are in the need to set an environment variable for an smf service, you are looking for envvar. It get’s set in the
service scope or in the
exec_method scope. Here is a small example, how it’s used.
<exec_method type="method" name="start" exec="/bin/bash"> <method_context> <method_environment> <envvar name="FOO" value="bar" /> </method_environment> </method_context> </exec_method>
This example sets the environment variable
FOO to bar. This is espacially useful, when you have to modify
LD_LIBRARY_PATH. Just don’t forget, that you did it.
