Description

Information for illumos SMF should be added to the man page for named. This is the DNS server. Information on how to start and stop the server should be added, along with information on the meaning of each SMF property and how to change these properties. As well, the added information should include the precautions to take when running named on OI.

The man page for the daemon is the usual and expected place to find this information. See the man page for ntpd, the NTP server, for an example.

I've created a github PR that fixes this problem by patching the named man page. The PR number is 6198 .

I tested the changed man page by creating it with gmake install , and viewing it with the man command.
