How to Enforce a New Local User Password in a Labeled Zone

    Under the following conditions, labeled zones must be rebooted:

  • One or more local users have changed their passwords.

  • All zones are using a single instance of the naming service cache daemon (nscd).

  • The system is administered with files, not LDAP.

Before You Begin

You must be assigned the Zone Security rights profile.

  • To enforce the password change, reboot the labeled zones that the users can access.

    Use one of the following methods:

    • Use the txzonemgr GUI.
      # txzonemgr &

      In the Labeled Zone Manager, navigate to the labeled zone and from the list of commands, select Halt, then select Boot.

    • In a terminal window in the global zone, use zone administration commands.

      You can choose to shut down or halt the system.

      • The zlogin command cleanly shuts down the zone.

        # zlogin labeled-zone shutdown -i 0
        # zoneadm -z labeled-zone boot
      • The halt subcommand bypasses the shutdown scripts.

        # zoneadm -z labeled-zone halt
        # zoneadm -z labeled-zone boot
