The root user or a system owner can perform remote
tasks with most SCOadmin managers.
When you open another host via the
Host Open Host
selection, any administration or configuration you
perform affects only that host. When using managers to administer the
local machine, you can also:
Users other than root or system owners can also use portions of
these managers if they have been granted the appropriate subsystem
authorizations as described in
``Enabling remote manager capabilities''.
manipulate remote print jobs (submitted by a remote host)
that show up in the queue for the Print Job Manager
export filesystems to remote machines, and mount remote filesystems, with
the Filesystem Manager
Enabling remote manager capabilities
Before using SCOadmin managers to administer remote systems, you must:
between your system and the systems to
be managed. Do this for each user who is a system owner
or has authorization to run SCOadmin managers.
Enabling remote access - also known as
compromises the security of your
system, in that all persons who can access the root
account of the remote machine now have access, as root,
to your machine. Grant this access sparingly.
For non-system owner accounts, you must
assign authorizations (as described in
on each machine to those users who
will access the SCOadmin managers.
You also have the option of defining system owners (who have
the power to run all SCOadmin managers) and the systems from
which they can access a given host. See
``Using the SCOadmin Setup Wizard''
for more information.
With remote access properly set-up,
you can select a host to configure
in one of the managers.
Actions taken after selecting another host affect that host.
