Configure UNIX security realms

Note: The UNIX Security realm runs only on the Solaris and Linux platforms.

To configure the UNIX security realm:

  1. If you have not already done so, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Lock & Edit (see Use the Change Center).
  2. In the left pane, expand Compatibility Security > Realms and click New.

    The Create a New Basic Realm page appears.

  3. In the Name field, enter a name for the UNIX security realm.
  4. In the Type drop-down list, select Unix Realm and click OK.
  5. Configure the Caching realm. For more information, see Configure Caching realms.

    When configuring the Caching realm, select your UNIX security realm from the pull-down menu for the Basic Realm attribute on the General page. The Basic Realm attribute defines the association between the Caching realm and the alternate security realm (in this case, the UNIX security realm).

  6. In the left pane, select your domain (for example, mydomain).
  7. Select Compatibility Security > File Realm.
  8. In the Caching Realm field, choose the name of the Caching realm to be used with the UNIX security realm. A list of configured Caching realms appears on the pull-down menu.
  9. Reboot WebLogic Server.
