solregis - Solaris user registration


/usr/dt/bin/solregis [ -dc ]


The solregis command initiates the Solaris user registration procedure. This allows users to register with Sun Microsys- tems and receive information about Solaris. Normally, sol- regis is executed in conditional mode as a part of desktop login so that users are prompted at desktop start up time to register, unless they have already done so.


The following options are supported: -d Delay display of the initial screen until a window manager has asserted control of the X display. -c Conditional mode. If specified, solregis will exit without any dialog displayed if: (1) $HOME/.solregis/disable exists, (2) DISABLE=1 is specified in /etc/default/solregis, or (3) the user has already registered.


The following resources can control the behavior and appear- ance of solregis: Name Class Value Type Default disable Disable Boolean False localeChoices LocaleChoices Int 1 action0 Action String /usr/dt/bin/hotjava initialURL0 URL String file:///usr/dt/app- config \ /solregis/EReg.html localeChoicen LocaleChoice String null actionn Action String null for n>0 initialURLn URL String null for n>0 printContext PrintContext String thisorgunit disable If TRUE, when executed in conditional mode solregis simply exits without displaying anything. localeChoices Specifies the number of localeChoicen, actionn and initialURLn sets. The first set is 0, so if localeChoices is 1, localeChoice0, action0,and SunOS 5.8 Last change: 23 Dec 1996 1 User Commands solregis(1) initialURL0 are the only active resources. If localeChoices is 1, none of the localeChoicen strings are displayed, and action0, and so forth. are used. If localeChoices is greater than 1, each localeChoicen string is made an element in an exclusive choice list and the index of the selected item controls which actionn and initialURLn resources are applied. localeChoicen Specifies the string presented to the user for this choice. actionn Specifies the file name of the command to be executed (normally expected to be a World Wide Web browser) when the user selects "Register Now", or the special string "print". If "print" is specified, the ini- tialURLn string must be a file name on the local sys- tem, naming a file which is to be printed after prompting the user for a print destination. initialURLn Specifies the argument to be passed to actionn for initial registration. This will normally be the Universal Resource Locator for the initial page to be displayed by the World Wide Web browser. printContext XFN naming context under which the printers to display to the user if the special "print" action are named, in the service/printer context. For example, if the default printContext "thisorgunit" is used, the printers in thisorgunit/service/printer are displayed.
