How to Create a Kerberos Client Installation Profile

This procedure creates a kclient profile that can be used when you install a Kerberos client. By using the profile, you reduce the likelihood of typing errors. Also, using the profile reduces user intervention as compared to the interactive process.

Note -  To create systems that initially boot as fully configured Kerberos clients, see Configuring Security in Installing Oracle Solaris 11.2 Systems .

Before You Begin

You must assume the root role. For more information, see Using Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.2 .

  1. Create a kclient installation profile.

    The following is a sample kclient profile:

    client# pfedit kcprofile
    ADMIN clntconfig
    FILEPATH /net/
    NFS 1
    DNSLOOKUP none
  2. Protect the file and store it for use by other clients.
    client# cp kcprofile /net/
    denver# chown root kcprofile; chmod 644 kcprofile
