Task Map: Preparing For and Enabling Trusted Extensions

To prepare a Trusted Extensions system before configuring it, complete the tasks that are described in the following task map.

For Instructions
Complete the preparation of your Oracle Solaris system.
Back up your system.
For a Trusted Solaris 8 system, back up the system as described in the documentation for your release. A labeled backup can be restored to each identically labeled zone.
For an Oracle Solaris system, see System Administration Guide: Basic Administration.
Gather information and make decisions about your system and your Trusted Extensions network.
Enable Trusted Extensions.
Configure the system.
For a system with a monitor, see Task Map: Configuring Trusted Extensions.
For a Sun Ray, see Sun Ray Server Software 4.1 Installation and Configuration Guide for the Solaris Operating System. For the Sun Ray 5 release, see the Sun Ray Server 4.2 and Sun Ray Connector 2.2 Documentation web site. Together, this server and client comprise the Sun Ray 5 package.

To configure initial client-server communication, see Configuring Trusted Network Databases (Task Map) in Trusted Extensions Administrator’s Procedures.

For a laptop, go to the OpenSolaris Community: Security web page. Click Trusted Extensions. On the Trusted Extensions page under Laptop Configurations, click Laptop instructions.
To prevent networks from communicating with the global zone, configure the vni0 interface. For an example, see the Laptop instructions.

Starting in the Solaris 10 10/08 release, you do not need to configure the vni0 interface. By default, the lo0 interface is an all-zones interface. For dhcp to work with Trusted Extensions, other laptop instructions still apply.
