|Oracle Solaris Trusted Extensions Configuration and Administration Oracle Solaris 11 Express 11/10|
Familiarize yourself with the following procedures before administering Trusted Extensions.The following task map describes common procedures and pointers to instructions.
By assuming a role, you enter the global zone in Trusted Extensions. Administration of the entire system is possible only from the global zone. Only superuser or a role can enter the global zone.
After assuming a role, the role can create a workspace at a user label to edit administration files in a labeled zone.
For troubleshooting purposes, you can also enter the global zone by starting a Failsafe session. For details, see How to Log In to a Failsafe Session in Trusted Extensions.
You have created one or more roles, or you plan to enter the global zone as superuser. For pointers, see Role Creation in Trusted Extensions.
Click your user name in the trusted stripe and choose a role.
If you have been assigned a role, the role names are displayed in a list.
For the location and significance of Trusted Extensions desktop features, see Chapter 4, Elements of Trusted Extensions (Reference), in Oracle Solaris Trusted Extensions User Guide.
Click the role name on the trusted stripe, and from the menu, select a different role or user. This action changes the current workspace to the process of the new role or user.
You are in the global zone.
When you click the role name, your user name and a list of roles that you can assume is displayed. When you select your user name, all subsequent windows that you create in that workspace are created by the selected name. The windows that you previously created on the current desktop continue to display at the name and label of the role.
