System Administration Guide: Basic Administration

ProcedureChanging Services Offered to the Network with generic*.xml

The netservices command switches system services between minimal network exposure and the traditional network exposure (as in previous Solaris releases). The switch is done with the generic_limited.xml and generic_open.xml profiles. In addition, some services properties are changed by the command to limit some services to a local-only mode or to the traditional mode, as appropriate.

Note –

In the Solaris Express 7/06 release, the generic_limited_net profile and the local-mode only service properties are applied by default.

  1. Become superuser or assume a role that includes the Service Management rights profile.

    Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Configuring RBAC in System Administration Guide: Security Services.

  2. Run the netservices command.

    In this example, the open or traditional network exposure is selected.

    # /usr/sbin/netservices open

Example 17–10 Limiting Network Service Exposure

This command changes properties to run some services in local mode, as well as restricts which services are enabled with the generic_limited_net profile. The command should only be used if the generic_open.xml profile had been applied.

# /usr/sbin/netservices limited
