NAME

smexec - manage entries in the exec_attr database

SYNOPSIS

/usr/sadm/bin/smexec subcommand [ auth_args ] -- [ subcommand_args ]

DESCRIPTION

The smexec command manages an entry in the exec_attr(4) database in the local /etc files name service or a NIS or NIS+ name service. subcommands smexec subcommands are: add Adds a new entry to the exec_attr(4) database. To add an entry to the exec_attr database, the administrator must have the solaris.profmgr.execattr.write authori- zation. delete Deletes an entry from the exec_attr(4) database. To delete an entry from the exec_attr database, the administrator must have the solaris.profmgr.execattr.write authorization. modify Modifies an entry in the exec_attr(4) database. To modify an entry in the exec_attr database, the administrator must have the solaris.profmgr.execattr.write authorization.

OPTIONS

The smexec authentication arguments, auth_args, are derived from the smc(1M) arg set and are the same regardless of which subcommand you use. The smexec command requires the Solaris Management Console to be initialized for the command to succeed (see smc(1M)). After rebooting the Solaris Management Console server, the first Solaris Management Con- sole connection might time out, so you might need to retry the command. The subcommand-specific options, subcommand_args, must come after the auth_args and must be separated from them by the -- option. auth_args The valid auth_args are -D, -H, -l, -p, -r, and -u; they are all optional. If no auth_args are specified, certain defaults will be assumed and the user may be prompted for additional information, such as a password for authentica- tion purposes. These letter options can also be specified by SunOS 5.8 Last change: 5 Jan 2001 1 Maintenance Commands smexec(1M) their equivalent option words preceded by a double dash. For example, you can use either -D or --domain with the domain argument. -D | --domain domain Specifies the default domain that you want to manage. The syntax of domain is type:/host_name/domain_name, where type is nis, nisplus, dns, ldap, or file; host_name is the name of the machine that serves the domain; and domain_name is the name of the domain you want to manage. (Note: Do not use nis+ for nisplus.) If you do not specify this option, the Solaris Manage- ment Console assumes the file default domain on what- ever server you choose to manage, meaning that changes are local to the server. Toolboxes can change the domain on a tool-by-tool basis; this option specifies the domain for all other tools. -H | --hostname host_name:port Specifies the host_name and port to which you want to connect. If you do not specify a port, the system con- nects to the default port, 898. If you do not specify host_name:port, the Solaris Management Console con- nects to the local host on port 898. You may still have to choose a toolbox to load into the console. To override this behavior, use the smc(1M) -B option, or set your console preferences to load a "home toolbox" by default. -l | --rolepassword role_password Specifies the password for the role_name. If you specify a role_name but do not specify a role_password, the system prompts you to supply a role_password. Passwords specified on the command line can be seen by any user on the system, hence this option is considered insecure. -p | --password password Specifies the password for the user_name. If you do not specify a password, the system prompts you for one. Passwords specified on the command line can be seen by any user on the system, hence this option is considered insecure. -r | --rolename role_name Specifies a role name for authentication. If you do not specify this option, no role is assumed. -u | --username user_name Specifies the user name for authentication. If you do not specify this option, the user identity running the SunOS 5.8 Last change: 5 Jan 2001 2 Maintenance Commands smexec(1M) console process is assumed. -- This option is required and must always follow the preceding options. If you do not enter the preceding options, you must still enter the -- option. subcommand_args Note: Descriptions and other arg options that contain white spaces must be enclosed in double quotes. o For subcommand add: -c command_path Specifies the full path to the command associ- ated with the new exec_attr entry. -g egid (Optional) Specifies the effective group ID that executes with the command. -G gid (Optional) Specifies the real group ID that exe- cutes with the command. -h (Optional) Displays the command's usage state- ment. -n profile_name Specifies the name of the profile associated with the new exec_attr entry. -t type Specifies the type for the command. Currently, the only acceptable value for type is cmd. -u euid (Optional) Specifies the effective user ID that executes with the command. -U uid (Optional) Specifies the real user ID that exe- cutes with the command. o For subcommand delete: -c command_path Specifies the full path to the command associ- ated with the exec_attr entry. -h (Optional) Displays the command's usage state- ment. SunOS 5.8 Last change: 5 Jan 2001 3 Maintenance Commands smexec(1M) -n profile_name Specifies the name of the profile associated with the exec_attr entry. -t type Specifies the type cmd for command. Currently, the only acceptable value for type is cmd. o For subcommand modify: -c command_path Specifies the full path to the command associ- ated with the exec_attr entry that you want to modify. -g egid (Optional) Specifies the new effective group ID that executes with the command. -G gid (Optional) Specifies the new real group ID that executes with the command. -h (Optional) Displays the command's usage state- ment. -n profile_name Specifies the name of the profile associated with the exec_attr entry. -t type Specifies the type cmd for command. Currently, the only acceptable value for type is cmd. -u euid (Optional) Specifies the new effective user ID that executes with the command. -U uid (Optional) Specifies the new real user ID that executes with the command.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Creating an exec_attr database entry The following creates a new exec_attr entry for the User Manager profile on the local file system. The entry type is cmd for the command /usr/bin/cp. The command has an effec- tive user ID of 0 and an effective group ID of 0. SunOS 5.8 Last change: 5 Jan 2001 4 Maintenance Commands smexec(1M) ./smexec add -H myhost -p mypasswd -u root -- -n "User Manager" \ -t cmd -c /usr/bin/cp -u 0 -g 0 Example 2: Deleting an exec_attr database entry The following example deletes an exec_attr database entry for the User Manager profile from the local file system. The entry designated for the command /usr/bin/cp is deleted. ./smexec delete -H myhost -p mypasswd -u root -- -n "User Manager" \ -t cmd -c /usr/bin/cp Example 3: Modifying an exec_attr database Entry The following modifies the attributes of the exec_attr data- base entry for the User Manager profile on the local file system. The /usr/bin/cp entry is modified to execute with the real user ID of 0 and the real group ID of 0. ./smexec modify -H myhost -p mypasswd -u root -- -n "User Manager" \ -t cmd -c /usr/bin/cp -U 0 -G 0
