Administration Tools for Trusted Extensions

Administration on a system that is configured with Trusted Extensions uses many of the same tools that are available in the Oracle Solaris OS. Trusted Extensions offers security-enhanced tools as well. Administration tools are available only to roles in a role workspace.

Within a role workspace, you can access commands, actions, applications, and scripts that are trusted. The following table summarizes these administrative tools.

Table 2-1 Trusted Extensions Administrative Tools

For More Information
Provides a menu-based wizard for creating, installing, initializing, and booting zones. This script replaces the Trusted CDE actions that manage zones.

The script also provides menu items for networking options, name services options, and for clienting the global zone to an existing LDAP server. txzonemgr uses the zenity command.

In Trusted CDE, actions in the Trusted_Extensions folder in the Application Manager folder
Used to edit local files that the Solaris Management Console does not manage, such as /etc/system. Some actions run scripts, such as the Install Zone action.
In Trusted CDE, Device Allocation Manager

In Solaris Trusted Extensions (JDS), Device Manager

Used to administer the label ranges of devices, and to allocate or deallocate devices.
Solaris Management Console
Used to configure users, roles, rights, hosts, zones, and networks. This tool can update local files or LDAP databases.

This tool can also launch the dtappsession legacy application.

Solaris Management Console commands, such as smuser and smtnzonecfg
Is the command-line interface for the Solaris Management Console.
For a list, see Table 2-4.
Label Builder
Is also a user tool. Appears when a program requires you to choose a label.
Trusted Extensions commands
Used to perform tasks that are not covered by Solaris Management Console tools or CDE actions.
For the list of administrative commands, see Table 2-5.
