  • Oracle Solaris Account Management BUI – The browser-based Oracle Solaris Account Management application is another tool for managing user accounts.

  • Default account name for LDAP accounts – The new default@ account name enables you to assign default user attributes to accounts in the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) directory.

  • Clearance attribute for restricting user access Through the clearance attribute, you can assign labels to users to restrict access to certain confidential process information.

  • Increased user name length – User names greater than 8 bytes are supported.
