(Privilege Manager for Unix only.) The pmvi editor is a special version of vi that you can use securely with Privilege Manager programs. You must specify a full path name as an argument when starting pmvi. Also, you will not be able to access any files other than the ones you specified at startup time nor spawn any processes.
Use pmvi to allow users to access a specific file as root but no other root functions.
Privilege Manager for Unix is comprised of the following packages:
Contains the Privilege Manager Policy Server and PM Agent components and uses the native packaging system for each platform (RPM, PKG, etc).
Contains the Privilege Manager Policy Server and Sudo Plugin components and uses the native packaging system for each platform (RPM, PKG, etc).
This is a stand-alone native binary for each platform (not zipped, tarred or packaged). This binary exists stand-alone on the ISO to make it available for use prior to installing software. It does not change any Privilege Manager configuration on the host.
NOTE: See Download Privilege Manager for Unix Software Packages for details.
Privilege Manager is provided in native platform install packages, which include binary files, online man pages, installation files and configuration file examples.
The install packages are located in the zip archive in two directories called:
where <platform> is the name of the platform on which you are running Privilege Manager.
There are three different packages:
NOTE: The Solaris® server and agent packages have filenames that start with QSFTpmsrv and QSFTpmagt, respectively.
Once installed, the packaged files are placed in an installation directory under /opt/quest which contains subdirectories and files.
The platform directories contain the Privilege Manager for Unix installer packages for each platform supported by Privilege Manager for Unix.
