The security administrator wishes to create a rights profile which is a superset of another rights profile. Certain commands in the new rights profile are to be run with different attributes to the original profile. How would you implement this using the RBAC framework?
Modify the /etc/exec_attr file to use a shell script which checks the rights profile being used and then executes the commands with the appropriate attributes using the pfexec command. C Assign both rights profiles to the appropriate roles and give a higher priority to the commands for the new rights profile when different attributes are required.

Solaris Volume Manager software state databases can be added at any time.
The Solaris Volume Manager software state database contains configuration information for all volumes and hot spares.
SystemA has a file system named /data/dbase that is being shared. systemB needs to mount that file system so that users on systemB can access the data remotely on systemA. The information in the /data/dbase file system is confidential and access to that data must be restricted so that only user1 and user2 can access the data from systemB. Which answer describes a method to protect the data on systemA so that only specific users on system can access that data?
On systemA, protect the /data/dbase directory using conventional UNIX permissions so that only user1 and user2 can access the data. Then, share the file system on systemA as follows:
You are preparing to install several UltraSPARC machines that will function as servers using JumpStart. Since these machines are servers, you want to disable the power management feature of Solaris 10 OS during installation. What JumpStart configuration technique must you use to disable power management during a JumpStart installation?
There is no way to disable power management if you are using JumpStart.

The first format displays information necessary to configure DHCP to PXE boot a class of machines.
The second format displays information necessary to configure DHCP to PXE boot a single, specific system.
if your system uses a large number of mirrors, make sure that you have an adequate number of state databases. If you create too few state database replicas, performance could be negatively impacted. What is the recommended number of state database replicas for mirrored volumes?

When creating a slice for your database replicas, how much space should be allocated to the slice?
4 Mbytes in size for each replica that it will store.
Assuming the directory /swapdir exists, what is the result of executing the following command? # mkfile 100m /swapdir/file1
A 100 megabyte swap file named /swapdir/file1 is created.
You believe that you have a correctly configured boot server on the local network for the SPARC system currently being installed. Your JumpStart configuration is based on files only and does NOT use a naming service at any stage. Upon running the following command: boot net -install the client displays the following output: Boot device: /[email protected],0/[email protected],1/[email protected],1 File and args: - install 38600 panic - boot: Could not mount filesystem. Program terminated ok What is the cause of this problem?
The root file system is NOT shared using NFS from the boot server.
The security team requests that NFS logging be enabled. They supply you with the configuration parameters that they want. In which file do you need to place the configuration parameters?
The production server needs additional swap space due to lack of physical memory. The system has only one disk and is partitioned as follows: Part Tag Flag Cylinders Size Blocks 0 root wm 1041 - 38491 18.00GB (37451/0/0) 37750608 1 swap wu 0 - 1040 512.37MB (1041/0/0) 1049328 2 backup wm 0 - 39532 19.00GB (39533/0/0) 39849264 3 unassigned wm 0 0 (0/0/0) 0 4 unassigned wm 0 0 (0/0/0) 0 5 unassigned wm 0 0 (0/0/0) 0 6 unassigned wm 0 0 (0/0/0) 0 7 unassigned wm 0 0 (0/0/0) 0 There is one swap slice configured and active: # swap -l swapfile dev swaplo blocks free /dev/dsk/c0t0d0s1 136,1 16 1049312 0 The root file system is a flat file system: # df -k / Filesystem kbytes used avail capacity Mounted on /dev/dsk/c0t0d0s0 18575269 9549546 9025723 53% / Which two methods can be used to temporarily add swap space? (Choose two.)
create a 512 megabyte swap file on the root disk: # mkfile 512m /swapfile # swap -a /swapfile
repartition the disk so that slice 3 contains the unused cylinders 38492 through 39532, and then add slice 3 as swap: # swap -a /dev/dsk/c0t0d0s3

Given: usermod -P Profile user1 Which two statements are true? (Choose two.)
The user1 user loses all other profiles.
The user1 user gets assigned Profile.
Given this line from the name service configuration file: hosts: nis [NOTFOUND=return] files Which two statements correctly describe the behavior of the name service switch? (Choose two.)
If NIS were unavailable, the attempt to locate the host's address would be continued within the local file (/etc/inet/hosts).
If NIS were available, but a host IP address was NOT in the NIS map, the attempt to locate the host's address would be abandoned.
On a system with a number of zones installed, all zones are NIS clients of the global zone. A second NIS domain is required. Which statement is true?
The administrator can create a new zone with a second NIS server; each zone is free to pick its own domain name.
You log on as root and issue the command: #snoop -a What are two results of issuing this command? (Choose two.)
Network traffic is displayed.
Packets can be listened to on /dev/audio.
With the Solaris OS, you are required to reserve swap space prior to executing any process. This requires the available of swap space. The required amount of swap space varies from system to system. Which two statements about available swap space requirements are true? (Choose two.)
It does not require physical disk space.
It must be sufficient to supplement physical RAM to meet the needs of concurrently running processes.
The security administrator wants to assign user bob to a netsec role so that the user can run the ifconfig(1M) and snoop(1M) commands with a rights profile named NSM. Which entries are contained in the /etc/security/exec_attr file after the required RBAC configuration is implemented when using privileges rather than uid 0?

Which two profile keywords are required to install a differential flash archive? (choose two)
A junior administrator is having difficulty getting a service installed and configured on a Solaris 10 OS and has asked for assistance. The service must be started automatically from inetd. The installation script places entries appropriate to the service in /etc/inetd.conf and they are formatted correctly. The service does NOT start on demand and the administrator has issued several pkill -HUP inetd commands. This same service installs and works fine on a Solaris 9 OS. There are no problems with the binaries associated with the service. What command must be run to configure and enable this service on the Solaris 10 OS?
inetconv -e -f
