Quick Reference to Trusted Extensions Administration

Trusted Extensions interfaces extend the Oracle Solaris OS. This appendix provides a quick reference of the differences. For a detailed list of interfaces, including library routines and system calls, see List of Trusted Extensions Man Pages.

Administrative Interfaces in Trusted Extensions

Trusted Extensions provides interfaces for its software. The labeladm command enables and disables the labeld service, and sets the label_encodings file for a Trusted Extensions system. The following interfaces are available only when Trusted Extensions software is running:

txzonemgr script

Simplifies creating, installing, initializing, and booting labeled zones. The title of the menu is Labeled Zone Manager. This script also provides menu items for networking options, naming services options, and for making the global zone a client of an existing LDAP server. Administrators can create the first two labeled zones with the txzonemgr -c command.

Note - To use the txzonemgr script interactively, you must either be running in a desktop session in the global zone or in a remote desktop session after using the –X option of ssh.
Administrative commands

Trusted Extensions provides commands to obtain labels and perform other tasks. For a list of the commands, see Command Line Tools in Trusted Extensions.
