Changing UNIX system settings

In addition to the common system settings you can change for any type of system, there are a few UNIX-specific system settings. For example, you can use System Settings to update or set the following types of information after adding a system:

  • Select a domain for the system and enable domain operations.

    You can set a domain for a system and then enable domain operations to use the domain administrative account to enable zone role workflow. For configuration steps, see Setting domain operations for a system.

  • Change the session type or port number for remote connections.

    You can manually select secure shell or remote desktop and change the port number for remote sessions. If you don’t specify a session type and port, the secure shell client and port 22 are used by default.

  • Select a system time zone.

    You can manually select the time zone you want to use for any system. If you don’t specify a time zone, the local time zone of the system is used by default.

  • 'Use My Account' is configured on this system.

    You can select Use My Account to enable secure shell sessions that do not require a password. Users must have the view permission and an account on that system to log on. For details about how to configure a target system to Log on with the Use My Account feature, see Authenticating with a single-use SSH Certificate.

  • Change proxy account settings.

    If you configure ssh to prevent the root user account from logging on using secure shell connections, you can select the Enable Proxy Account option to set the proxy user name and password.

  • Add or modify the optional description of the system.
