RUNPRIV(1M)							   RUNPRIV(1M)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     runpriv - run privileged commands

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     /usr/sysadm/bin/runpriv [ -auth auth-scheme ] privilege ...

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     runpriv checks to see if you have been granted privilege, and if so it
     runs the command privilege	found in the directory /usr/sysadm/privbin
     with the remaining	arguments.

     runpriv succeeds if any one of following conditions are met:

     1.	  You are running as root.

     2.	  There	is no root password on the system.

     3.	  The file /var/sysadm/defaultPrivileges/privilege exists and has the
	  string "on" as its first line	(see defaultPrivileges(4)).

     4.	  There	is an entry in the privilegedUsers(4) database granting	you
	  all privileges.

     5.	  There	is an entry in the privilege(4)	database granting you the
	  requested privilege, and you are not an NIS user.

     6.	  The -auth auth-scheme	arguments are provided,	and you	pass the
	  authentication test.	If auth-scheme is unix,	then you must type the
	  root password	when prompted in order to pass.

     Checks 3, 4, and 5	will automatically fail	if the privileges
     configuration file	in /etc/config is not on (see chkconfig(1M)).
