Oracle Solaris Trusted Extensions Administrator's Procedures

ProcedureHow to Administer the Local System With the Solaris Management Console

The first time that you launch the Solaris Management Console on a system, a delay occurs while the tools are registered and various directories are created. This delay typically occurs during system configuration. For the procedure, see Initialize the Solaris Management Console Server in Trusted Extensions in Oracle Solaris Trusted Extensions Configuration Guide.

To administer a remote system, see Administering Trusted Extensions Remotely (Task Map).

Before You Begin

You must have assumed a role. For details, see How to Enter the Global Zone in Trusted Extensions.

  1. Start the Solaris Management Console.

    In Solaris Trusted Extensions (JDS), use the command line.

    $ /usr/sbin/smc &

    In Trusted CDE, you have three choices.

    • Use the smc command in a terminal window.

    • From the Tools pull-up menu on the Front Panel, click the Solaris Management Console icon.

    • In the Trusted_Extensions folder, double-click the Solaris Management Console icon.

  2. Choose Console -> Open Toolbox.

  3. From the list, select a Trusted Extensions toolbox of the appropriate scope.

    A Trusted Extensions toolbox has Policy=TSOL as part of its name. The Files scope updates local files on the current system. The LDAP scope updates LDAP directories on the Sun JavaTM System Directory Server. The toolbox names appear similar to the following:

    This Computer (this-host: Scope=Files, Policy=TSOL)
    This Computer (ldap-server: Scope=LDAP, Policy=TSOL)
  4. Navigate to the desired Solaris Management Console tool.

    The password prompt is displayed.

    For tools that Trusted Extensions has modified, click System Configuration.

  5. Type the password.

    Refer to the online help for additional information about Solaris Management Console tools. For an introduction to the tools that Trusted Extensions modifies, see Solaris Management Console Tools.

  6. To close the GUI, choose Exit from the Console menu.
