The cfgmgr configuration management server works with the kernel load server (kloadsrv) daemon to manage the subsystems that are dynamically configurable, loadable, or both. The cfgmgr server starts up automatically when a client (such as the sysconfig command) makes a configuration management request. Examples of configuration management requests are requests to configure, reconfigure, query, or unconfigure a subsystem.
The cfgmgr server allows query operations from any superuser (root login), local or remote. The superuser on the local system is also allowed to configure, reconfigure, or unconfigure local kernel subsystems. Remote access to the kernel subsystem configuration is allowed through the /etc/cfgmgr.auth file. System administrators working on hosts listed in that file can also configure, reconfigure, or unconfigure local kernel subsystems. If the /etc/cfgmgr.auth file does not exist or is empty, no remote users are allowed to configure, reconfigure, or unconfigure local kernel subsystems.
If you use the sysconfig -v command, the cfgmgr server displays debugging information to the /dev/console screen. See the sysconfig(8) reference page for more information about the -v flag.
