Oracle Solaris Trusted Extensions Administrator's Procedures

ProcedureHow to Modify a User's Label Range in the Solaris Management Console

You might want to extend a user's label range to give the user read access to an administrative application. For example, a user who can log in to the global zone could then run the Solaris Management Console. The user could view, but not not change the contents.

Alternatively, you might want to restrict the user's label range. For example, a guest user might be limited to one label.
