[rescue] Solaris 11 SMF oddity

I have a minor puzzle.  My X4540 rebooted itself yesterday.

The first problem with this is that I haven't been able to figure out
why, and it didn't log anything.  But it appears to have just possibly
been something done (without asking for permission) by

The second problem is that after it came back up, Bacula wasn't running,
and with no evidence of anything wrong with it, wouldn't restart ...
until I re-imported its manifest into SMF.

It seems like SMF had the Bacula services in its running instance, but
hadn't actually committed it.  So now I'm looking for a subcommand to
tell svccfg to save or commit the imported service definitions ... and I
can't find one.

Does anyone else who runs Solaris 11 know if I'm missing something here?
