Identity Mapping Troubleshooting

Viewing Identity Mapping Service Property Settings

The identity mapping service uses the svccfg(1M) command to set properties. Before you change property values, you should view the current property settings.

To view configuration properties related to the idmap service, run one of the following commands:

  • # svccfg -s idmap listprop "config/*"

  • # svcprop -p config svc:/system/idmap

To view all properties related to the idmap service, run one of the following commands:

  • # svccfg -s idmap listprop

  • # svcprop svc:/system/idmap

Saving and Restoring Rule-Based Mappings

You might need to back up and restore your rule-based mappings.

For more information about the idmap export, idmap import, and idmap list commands, see the idmap(1M) man page.

To back up the mappings, perform the following steps:

  1. Save your rule-based mappings in one of the following ways:

    • Export the mappings.

      # idmap export -f output-file format
    • List the mappings.

      # idmap list >output-file
  2. Disable the idmap service.

    # svcadm disable idmap
  3. Remove the idmap.db databases.

    # rm /var/idmap/idmap.db /var/run/idmap/idmap.db
  4. Reboot the system.

To restore the mappings, use the mapping output you saved during the backup procedure. Do one of the following to restore based on your backup method:

  • Use the idmap import command.

    # idmap import -f input-file format
  • Use the idmap list command.

    Run output-file as a shell script.

    # sh ./output-file

Viewing Details About Mappings

If you encounter unexpected mapping results, use the idmap dump and idmap show commands to gather data. Each command has a -v option that produces detailed information about mappings.

For more information, see How to Show All Established Mappings and How to Show a Mapping for a Particular Identity.
