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

ProcedureCollect System Information Before Installing Trusted Extensions

  1. Determine the system's main hostname and IP address.

    The hostname is the name of the host on the network, and is the global zone. On a Solaris system, the getent command returns the hostname, as in:

    # getent hosts machine1   machine1
  2. Determine the IP address assignments for labeled zones.

    A system with two IP addresses can function as a multilevel server. A system with one IP address must have access to a multilevel server in order to print or perform multilevel tasks. For a discussion of IP address options, see Planning for Multilevel Access.

    Most systems require a second IP address for the labeled zones. For example, the following is a host with a second IP address for labeled zones:

    # getent hosts machine1-zones   machine1-zones
  3. Collect LDAP configuration information.

    For the LDAP server that is running Trusted Extensions software, you need the following information:

    • The name of the Trusted Extensions domain that the LDAP server serves

    • The IP address of the LDAP server

    • The LDAP profile name that will be loaded

    For an LDAP proxy server, you also need the password for the LDAP proxy.
