pfexec, pfsh, pfcsh, pfksh - execute a command in a profile


/usr/bin/pfexec command /usr/bin/pfsh [ options ] [ argument ... ] /usr/bin/pfcsh [ options ] [ argument ... ] /usr/bin/pfksh [ options ] [ argument ... ]


The pfexec program is used to execute commands with the attributes specified by the user's profiles in the exec_attr(4) database. It is invoked by the profile shells, pfsh, pfcsh, and pfksh which are linked to the Bourne shell, C shell, and Korn shell, respectively. Profiles are searched in the order specified in the user's entry in the user_attr(4) database. If the same command appears in more than one profile, the profile shell uses the first matching entry.


pfexec is used to execute commands with predefined process attributes, such as specific user or group IDs. Refer to the sh(1), csh(1), and ksh(1) man pages for com- plete usage descriptions of the profile shells.


The following exit values are returned: 0 Successful completion. 1 An error occurred.
