UNIX client verification
The following procedures are used to verify the UNIX client:
Verify the credential for the UNIX client.
Verify that the authentication client libraries are installed.
Verify correct authentication domains.
The following table describes the verification procedures for the UNIX client.
Table: Verification procedures for the UNIX client
Verify the credential for the UNIX client
Check that the credential for the client is indeed for the correct client and comes from the correct domain. Run bpnbat -whoami with -cf for the client's credential file.
bpnbat -whoami -cf /usr/openv/var/vxss/credentials/unix_client.company.com Name: unix_client.company.com Domain: NBU_Machines@unix_master.company.com Issued by: /CN=broker/OU=root@unix_master.company.com/O=vx Expiry Date: Oct 31 14:49:00 2007 GMT Authentication method: Veritas Private Security Operation completed successfully.
If the domain listed is not NBU_Machines@unix_master.company.com, consider running bpnbat -addmachine for the name in question (unix_client). This command is run on the computer with the authentication broker that serves the NBU_Machines domain (unix_master).
Then, on the computer where we want to place the certificate (unix_client), run: bpnbat -loginmachine
Verify that the authentication client libraries are installed
Run bpnbat -login on the client to verify that the authentication client libraries are installed.
bpnbat -login Authentication Broker: unix_master.company.com Authentication port [Enter = default]: Authentication type (NIS, NIS+, WINDOWS, vx, unixpwd): NIS Domain: min.com Name: Smith Password: Operation completed successfully.
Verify correct authentication domains
Check that any defined authentication domains for the client are correct in the Access Control host properties or by using cat(1). Ensure that the domains are spelled correctly. Also ensure that the authentication brokers on the list for each of the domains are valid for that domain type.
This process can also be verified in bp.conf using cat(1).
cat bp.conf SERVER = unix_master SERVER = unix_media CLIENT_NAME = unix_master AUTHENTICATION_DOMAIN = min.com "default company NIS namespace" NIS unix_master 0 AUTHENTICATION_DOMAIN = unix_master.company.com "unix_master password file" PASSWD unix_master 0 AUTHORIZATION_SERVICE = unix_master.company.com 0 USE_VXSS = AUTOMATIC
