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 configura-
  tion 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 char-
  acters 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, reconfig-
  ure, 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.
