For a Solaris system, see System Administration Guide: Basic Administration.

Gather information and make decisions about your system and your Trusted Extensions network.

Collecting Information and Making Decisions Before Enabling Trusted Extensions

Configure the system.

For a system with a monitor, see Task Map: Configuring Trusted Extensions.

For a headless system, see Headless System Configuration in Trusted Extensions (Task Map).

For a Sun RayTM, see Sun Ray Server Software 4.1 Installation and Configuration Guide for the Solaris Operating System. To configure initial client-server communication, see Configuring Trusted Network Databases (Task Map).

For a laptop, go to the OpenSolaris Community: Security web page. Click Trusted Extensions. On the Trusted Extensions page under Laptop Configurations, click Laptop instructions.

To prevent networks from communicating with the global zone, configure the vni0 interface. For an example, see the Laptop instructions.

In the Solaris Express Community Edition, you do not need to configure the vni0 interface. By default, the lo0 interface is an all-zones interface. You can make your external connection, dhcp, be an all-zones interface. For instructions, see the Laptop instructions.
