Solaris Trusted Extensions Installation and Configuration for Solaris 10 11/06 and Solaris 10 8/07 Releases

Cannot Open the Console Window in a Labeled Zone


When you attempt to open a console window in a labeled zone, the following error appears in a dialog box:

Action:DttermConsole,*,*,*,0 [Error]
Action not authorized.

Verify that the following two lines are present in each of the zone entries in the /etc/security/exec_attr file:

All Actions:solaris:act:::*;*;*;*;*:

If these lines are not present, the Trusted Extensions package that adds these entries was not installed in the labeled zones. In this case, re-create the labeled zones. For the procedure, see Creating Labeled Zones.
