The Solaris Management Console provides a remote administration interface to manage users, rights, roles, and the network. You assume a role to use the Console. In this procedure, you run the Console on the local system and specify the remote system as the server.
You have completed the following procedures:
On the remote system – Enable Remote Login by a Role in Trusted Extensions in Oracle Solaris Trusted Extensions Configuration Guide and Enable the Solaris Management Console to Accept Network Communications in Oracle Solaris Trusted Extensions Configuration Guide
On the remote system that is the LDAP server – Configuring the Solaris Management Console for LDAP (Task Map) in Oracle Solaris Trusted Extensions Configuration Guide
On the local system, log in as the user who is defined identically on the remote system.
Assume the role that you plan to use to administer the system.
In the role, start the Solaris Management Console.
In the Server dialog box, type the name of the remote server.
If you are using LDAP as a naming service, type the name of the LDAP server.
Then, choose one of the following scopes.
If you are not using LDAP as a naming service, type the name of the remote system that you want to administer.
Then, choose the Scope=Files toolbox.
This Computer (remote-system: Scope=Files, Policy=TSOL)
Select a tool under System Configuration.
When you select a tool such as User, a dialog box displays the Solaris Management Console server name, your user name, your role name, and a place to type the role's password. Make sure that the entries are correct.
In the role that is defined identically on the local and the remote systems, log in to the Solaris Management Console server.
Type the role's password and press Login as Role. You can now use the Solaris Management Console to manage the system.
Although you can use the Solaris Management Console to run dtappsession, the simplest way to use dtappsession is described in How to Remotely Administer Trusted Extensions With dtappsession.
