Re: how to identify trusted system?

Hi:

You have a trusted system if you have files in '/tcb/files/auth/*/*'. Use SAM to convert or unconvert to a trusted system (SAM -> Auditing and Security).

You should be aware that 11.31 (11iv3) is the last release that will support trusted systems. You would be better off, in my opinion, to convert to a Shadow Password file.

Regards!

Hi Fizan

Testing trusted system

give the following commands

cd /tcb

or

ll /tcb

if it was sucessfull means it is a trusted sytem.

if the directory not exist means it is non trusted system(this is one of the simple way to check)

one more way to check

With NON-TRUSTED systems, all encrypted passwords are stored in the /etc/passwd file.

With TRUSTED system, all encrypted passwords are stored in files in the /tcb/files/auth directory structure.
