Solaris Resource Manager 1.3 System Administration Guide

Lnode Maintenance Programs

The limadm command is the primary tool available to administrators for maintaining a user's lnode. This command changes Solaris Resource Manager attribute values for a given list of user accounts. If an lnode does not exist for any of the users, then a default-filled blank one is created first. New lnodes are created with the following properties:

The scheduling group of the new lnode is set to user 'other' (srmother) if an lnode for that user account exists, or else to the root lnode.

The limadm invoker needs sufficient administrative privilege to perform the specified changes. The invoker must be the superuser, have a set uselimadm flag, or be a group administrator who is only changing the attributes of members of the scheduling group to which the invoker belongs. Restrictions apply to the use of limadm by group administrators.

The limadm command allows an administrator to remove an lnode without deleting the corresponding user account in the password map. To use limadm, the invoker must be the superuser or have a set uselimadm flag. If the invoker only has a set admin flag, then the invoker can only modify the lnodes of users under scheduling groups for which the invoker is the group header.
