Solaris Naming Administration Guide


The namespace identifier user (or _user) is bound in the initial context to the username context in organizational unit of the host running the process. This allows other users in the same organizational unit to be named from this context.

From the initial context, the names user and thisorgunit/user resolve to the same context. For example, if the host running the process is a machine altair and altair is in the east.sales organizational unit, the name user/medici names the user medici in east.sales.
