How to Create the Home Directory Server in Trusted Extensions

Before You Begin

You are in the root role in the global zone.

  1. Add Trusted Extensions software to the home directory server and configure its labeled zones.

    Because users require a home directory at every label that they can log in to, create a home directory server at every user label. For example, if you create a default configuration, you would create a home directory server for the PUBLIC label and a server for the INTERNAL label.

  2. For every labeled zone, follow the automount procedure in How to NFS Mount Files in a Labeled Zone. Then, return to this procedure.
  3. Verify that the home directories have been created.
    1. Log out of the home directory server.
    2. As a regular user, log in to the home directory server.
    3. In the login zone, open a terminal.
    4. In the terminal window, verify that the user's home directory exists.
    5. Create workspaces for every zone that the user can work in.
    6. In each zone, open a terminal window to verify that the user's home directory exists.
  4. Log out of the home directory server.
