Oracle Solaris Trusted Extensions Administrator's Procedures

ProcedureHow to Edit Administrative Files in Trusted Extensions

Administrative files are edited with a trusted editor that incorporates auditing. This editor also prevents the user from executing shell commands and from saving to any file name other than the name of the original file.

  1. Assume a role.

    For details, see How to Enter the Global Zone in Trusted Extensions.

  2. Open a trusted editor.

    • In Solaris Trusted Extensions (CDE), do the following:

      1. To bring up the editor, click mouse button 3 on the background to bring up the Workspace menu.

      2. Click Applications, then click the Application Manager menu item.

        The Trusted_Extensions folder is in the Application Manager.

      3. Open the Trusted_Extensions folder.

      4. Double-click the Admin Editor action.

        You are prompted to provide a file name. For the format, see Step 3 and Step 4.

    • In Solaris Trusted Extensions (JDS), do the following:

  3. To create a new file, type the full path name for the new file.

    When you save the file, the editor creates a temporary file.

  4. To edit an existing file, type the full path name for the existing file.

    Note –

    If your editor provides a Save As option, do not use it. Use the editor's Save option to save the file.

  5. To save the file to the specified path name, close the editor.
