Start the User Accounts tool.
To run the User Accounts tool, you need to start the Solaris Management Console, as described in How to Assume a Role in the Solaris Management Console in System Administration Guide: Security Services in System Administration Guide: Security Services. Then, open the User Tool Collection, and click the User Accounts icon.
After the User Accounts tool starts, the icons for the existing user accounts are displayed in the view pane.
Click the user account icon to be changed and select Properties from the Action menu (or simply double-click the user account icon).
Click the appropriate tab in the dialog box for the property to be changed, as follows:
To change the roles that are assigned to the user, click the Roles tab and move the role assignment to be changed to the appropriate column: Available Roles or Assigned Roles.
To change the rights profiles that are assigned to the user, click the Rights tab and move it to the appropriate column: Available Rights or Assigned Rights.
It is not good practice to assign rights profiles directly to users. The preferred approach is to force users to assume roles in order to perform privileged applications. This strategy avoids the possibility of normal users abusing privileges.
Use the appropriate command:
To change the authorizations, roles, or rights profiles that are assigned to a user who is defined in the local scope, use the usermod(1M) command.
Alternatively, to change the authorizations, roles, or rights profiles that are assigned to a user who is defined in the local scope, edit the user_attr file.
This method is recommended for emergencies only, as it is easy to make a mistake while you are typing.
To change the authorizations, roles, or rights profiles that are assigned to a user who is defined in a name service, use the smuser(1M) command.
This command requires authentication as superuser or as a role that is capable of changing user files. You can apply smuser to all name services. smuser runs as a client of the Solaris Management Console server.
