The manage-profile tool is provided with the server to work with server profiles. It includes subcommands for creating, applying, and replacing server profiles, all of which significantly reduce the effort required by an administrator to configure a server appropriately.

The following sections describe these subcommands in more detail. For more information about the manage-profile tool, run manage-profile --help. For more information about each individual subcommand and its options, run manage-profile <subcommand> --help.
