svccfg -s network/inetd setenv UMEM_DEBUG default,firewall=1

this command is not working. I need to set an environment variable to the inetd service with "=" as a character in environment variable value.

If I read your command correctly you want to set the value of UMEM_DEBUG to default,firewall=1

You can do this interactively

svccfg -s network/inetd 
svc:/network/inetd> setprop start/environment=astring ("UMEM_DEBUG=default,firewall=1")
svc:/network/inetd> listprop start/environment
start/environment    astring    UMEM_DEBUG=default,firewall=1

quotes shouldn't be part of UMEM_DEBUG env value. – suresh Apr 29 '11 at 11:50
Firewall is an hidden option in umem – suresh Apr 29 '11 at 12:46
