NAME

smprofile - manage profiles in the prof_attr and exec_attr databases

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

The smprofile command manages one or more profiles in the prof_attr(4) or exec_attr(4) databases in the local /etc files name service or a NIS or NIS+ name service. subcommands smprofile subcommands are: add Adds a new profile (right) to the prof_attr(4) data- base. To add a profile, the administrator must have the solaris.profmgr.write authorization. delete Deletes a profile from the prof_attr(4) database, deletes all associated entries from the exec_attr(4) database, and deletes the assigned profile from the user_attr(4) database. To delete a profile, the administrator must have the solaris.profmgr.execattr.write and solaris.profmgr.write authorization. list Lists one or more profiles from the prof_attr(4) or exec_attr(4) databases. To list a profile, the administrator must have the solaris.profmgr.read authorization. modify Modifies a profile in the prof_attr(4) database. To modify a profile, the administrator must have the solaris.profmgr.write authorization.

OPTIONS

The smprofile authentication arguments, auth_args, are derived from the smc(1M) arg set and are the same regardless of which subcommand you use. The smprofile 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 Manage- ment Console 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. SunOS 5.8 Last change: 5 Jan 2001 1 Maintenance Commands smprofile(1M) 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 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 SunOS 5.8 Last change: 5 Jan 2001 2 Maintenance Commands smprofile(1M) 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 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: -a addauth1 -a addauth2 . . . (Optional) Specifies the authorization name(s) to add to the new profile. The administrator must have the solaris.profmgr.write authoriza- tion and must have the corresponding "grant" authorization. A "grant" authorization is one in which the lowest component of the authorization name is replaced by the word grant. For example, to grant some profile the solaris.role.write authorization, the administrator needs that authorization and also the solaris.role.grant authorization. For more information on granting authorizations, see auth_attr(4). -d description Specifies the description of the new profile. -h (Optional) Displays the command's usage state- ment. -m html_help Specifies the HTML help file name for the new profile. The help file name must be put in the /usr/lib/help/profiles/locale/C directory. -n name Specifies the name of the new profile. -p addprof1 -p addprof2 . . . (Optional) Specifies the supplementary profile name(s) to add to the new profile. o For subcommand delete: SunOS 5.8 Last change: 5 Jan 2001 3 Maintenance Commands smprofile(1M) -h (Optional) Displays the command's usage state- ment. -n name Specifies the name of the profile you want to delete. o For subcommand list: -h (Optional) Displays the command's usage state- ment. -l (Optional) Displays the detailed output for each profile in a block of key:value pairs, followed by a blank line that delimits each profile block. Each key:value pair is displayed on a separate line. All the attributes associated with a profile from the prof_attr and exec_attr databases are displayed. If you do not specify this option, only the specified profile name(s) and associated profile description(s) are displayed. -n name1 -n name2 . . . (Optional) Specifies the profile(s) that you want to display. If you do not specify a profile name, all profiles are displayed. o For subcommand modify: -a addauth1 -a addauth2 . . . (Optional) Specifies the authorization name(s) to add to the profile. The administrator must currently have been granted each of the speci- fied authorizations and must have the ability to grant each of those authorizations to other users or roles. For more information on granting authorizations, see auth_attr(4). -d description (Optional) Specifies the new description of the profile. -h (Optional) Displays the command's usage state- ment. -m html_help (Optional) Specifies the new HTML help file name of the profile. If you change this name, you must accordingly rename the help file name SunOS 5.8 Last change: 5 Jan 2001 4 Maintenance Commands smprofile(1M) entered in the /usr/lib/help/profiles/locale/C directory. -n name Specifies the name of the profile you want to modify. -p addprof1 -p addprof2 . . . (Optional) Specifies the supplementary profile name(s) to add to the profile. The administrator must have the solaris.profmgr.assign authoriza- tion to add any profile and the solaris.profmgr.delegate authorization to add any profile that has been assigned to the authenticated user. -q delprof1 -q delprof2 . . . (Optional) Specifies the supplementary profile name(s) to delete from the profile. The adminis- trator must have the solaris.profmgr.assign authorization to delete any profile and the solaris.profmgr.delegate authorization to delete any profile that has been assigned to the authenticated user. -r delauth1 -r delauth2 . . . (Optional) Specifies the authorization name(s) to delete from the profile. The administrator must have the solaris.profmgr.write authoriza- tion and must have the corresponding "grant" authorization. For more information about "grant" authorizations, see the -a option description for the add subcommand above.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Creating a new profile The following creates a new User Manager profile on the local file system. The new profile description is Manage users and groups, and the authorizations assigned are solaris.admin.usermgr.write and solaris.admin.usermgr.read. The supplementary profile assigned is Operator. The help file name is RtUserMgmt.html. ./smprofile add -H myhost -p mypasswd -u root -- -n "User Manager" \ -d "Manage users and groups" -a solaris.admin.usermgr.write \ -a solaris.admin.usermgr.read -p Operator -m RtUserMgmt.html SunOS 5.8 Last change: 5 Jan 2001 5 Maintenance Commands smprofile(1M) Example 2: Deleting a profile The following deletes the User Manager profile from the local file system: ./smprofile delete -H myhost -p mypasswd -u root -- -n "User Manager" Example 3: Listing all profiles The following lists all profiles and their associated pro- file descriptions on the local file system. ./smprofile list -H myhost -p mypasswd -u root -- Example 4: Modifying a profile The following modifies the User Manager profile on the local file system.
