Sun Cluster System Administration Guide for Solaris OS

ProcedureHow to Create a Role by Using the Administrative Roles Tool

  1. Start the Administrative Roles tool.

    Run the Administrative Roles tool, start the Solaris Management Console, as described in How to Assume a Role in the Solaris Management Console in System Administration Guide: Security Services in System Administration Guide: Security Services. Then, open the User Tool Collection, and click the Administrative Roles icon.

  2. Start the Add Administrative Role wizard.

    Select Add Administrative Role from the Action menu to start the Add Administrative Role wizard for configuring roles.

  3. Set up a role to which the Cluster Management rights profile is assigned.

    Use the Next and Back buttons to navigate between dialog boxes. Note that the Next button does not become active until you have filled in all required fields. The last dialog box enables you to review the entered data, at which point you can go back to change entries or click Finish to save the new role. Table 2–1 summarizes the dialog boxes.

    Note –

    You need to place this profile first in the list of profiles that are assigned to the role.

  4. Add users who need to use the SunPlex Manager features or Sun Cluster commands to the newly created role.

    You use the useradd(1M) command to add a user account to the system. The -P option assigns a role to a user's account.

  5. Click Finish when you are done.

  6. Open a terminal window, become root, and start and stop the name service cache daemon.

    The new role does not take effect until the name service cache daemon is restarted. After becoming root, type as follows:

    # /etc/init.d/nscd stop
    # /etc/init.d/nscd start
