NAME

cfgmgr.auth - Configuration management server authorization database  

SYNOPSIS

/etc/cfgmgr.auth  

DESCRIPTION

The cfgmgr.auth file lists the remote systems that are authorized to modify the local system's kernel subsystem configuration. Using the sysconfig command, system administrators can maintain the kernel subsystem configuration on local and remote hosts. To secure access to the kernel subsystem configuration, the local configuration management server (cfgmgr) answers requests from remote systems only when the remote system is listed in the cfgmgr.auth file.

Each entry in the file has the following form:

host-name

Where host-name specifies the full domain name of the remote host. You must list each remote host on a separate line and only the first 128 characters of each line are read and processed. Lines beginning with the pound sign (#) are comments.

If the cfgmgr.auth file does not exist, the configuration management server assumes no remote system administrators are allowed to configure, reconfigure, or unconfigure any kernel subsystem on the local host.  

EXAMPLES

The following shows entries in the cfgmgr.auth file on a host named buster:

salmon.zk3.dec.com
trout.zk3.dec.com
bluefish.zk3.dec.com

This cfgmgr.auth file allows system administrators on the salmon, trout, and bluefish hosts to configure, reconfigure, and unconfigure subsystems on buster.
