Command line SunSolve registration

Before you can use smpatch you need to register your system with SunSolve.
After installing you are prompted for installation when you log in to the desktop.
If you did not do this, you can register from the Applications>Utilities>Update Manager GUI program.
Both utilities also allow you to create a sunsolve user account if you did not have one yet.
If you only want to register your system from the commandline, here's the procedure

# cp /usr/lib/breg/data/RegistrationProfile.properties /tmp
# vi /tmp/RegistrationProfile.properties
userName=jan
password=xxx
# sconadm register -a -r /tmp/RegistrationProfile.properties
# rm /tmp/RegistrationProfile.properties
