NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       cfgmgr.auth  -  Configuration management server authorization

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The cfgmgr.auth file lists the  remote  systems  that  are
       authorized  to  modify the local system's kernel subsystem
       configuration.  Using the sysconfig command, system administrators
  can maintain the kernel subsystem configuration
       on local and remote hosts.  To secure access to the kernel
       subsystem  configuration,  the local configuration management
 server (cfgmgr) answers requests from remote  systems
       only  when  the remote system is listed in the cfgmgr.auth

       Each entry in the file has the following form:


       Where host-name specifies the  full  domain  name  of  the
       remote host.  You must list each remote host on a separate
       line and only the first 128 characters of  each  line  are
       read  and  processed.  Lines beginning with the pound sign
       (#) are comments.

       If the cfgmgr.auth file does not exist, the  configuration
       management  server assumes no remote system administrators
       are allowed to configure, reconfigure, or unconfigure  any
       kernel subsystem on the local host.

EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  following  shows entries in the cfgmgr.auth file on a
       host named buster:


       This cfgmgr.auth file allows system administrators on  the
       salmon,  trout, and bluefish hosts to configure, reconfigure,
 and unconfigure subsystems on buster.


       Commands: cfgmgr(8), sysconfig(8), sysconfigdb(8),  kloadsrv(8)

       Files:  /etc/sysconfigtab(4)

       System Administration delim off
