To copy administrative files, you must be superuser or in a role in the global zone.
Allocate the appropriate device.
In Solaris Trusted Extensions (CDE), a File Manager displays the contents of the portable media.
In Solaris Trusted Extensions (JDS), a File Browser displays the contents.
In this procedure, File Browser is used to refer to this GUI.
Insert the media that contains the administrative files.
If the system has a file of the same name, copy the original file to a new name.
For example, add .orig to the end of the original file:
# cp /etc/security/tsol/tnrhtp /etc/security/tsol/tnrhtp.orig
Open a File Browser.
Navigate to the desired destination directory, such as /etc/security/tsol
For each file that you want to copy, do the following:
Deallocate the device.
When prompted, eject and remove the media.
In this example, roles are not yet configured on the system. The root user needs to copy configuration files to portable media. The contents of the media will then be copied to other systems. These files are to be copied to each system that is configured with Trusted Extensions software.
The root user allocates the floppy_0 device in the Device Allocation Manager and responds yes to the mount query. Then, the root user inserts the diskette with the configuration files and copies them to the disk. The diskette is labeled Trusted Path.
To read from the media, the root user allocates the device on the receiving host, then downloads the contents.
