DHCP Server


This screen controls the creation and management of Dynamic Host ConfigurationProtocol (DHCP) servers. DHCP servers can assign IPv4 addresses to clients onthe network, while RADVD servers assign IPv6 addresses.Important:Do not create a new DHCP server if one already exists on the network. Enablingmultiple DHCP servers on the same network can cause IP address conflicts ornetwork access errors.

Click Next. 8. Configure a static IP address for the adapter.Important:A static IP address must be configured when creating a DHCP server. 1. Click Yes. 2. Configure IP address settings.Setting | Description —|— Fixed IP Address|Specify a fixed IP address.Tip:Examine your network setup for guidance on how to best configure thesesettings.

Password Policy


A password policy is defined as a set of instructions that a user must followto improve system security by using strong passwords and by using themproperly. In many organizations, password policy is shared as a part ofsecurity awareness training and it is mandatory for users to maintain thepolicy for security of critical systems and information in an organization.Using password policy in a SAP system, an administrator can setup system usersto deploy strong passwords that are not easy to break. This also helps tochange the password at the regular time intervals for system security.The following password policies are commonly used in a SAP System −

Default/Initial Password Change


This allows the users to change the initial password immediately when used forthe first time.

Password Change


In this policy, a user can be allowed to change his or her password almostonce a day, but an administrator can reset a user’s password as often asnecessary.A user shouldn’t be allowed to reuse the last five passwords. However, anadministrator can reset the password that is used by a user previously.

Password Encryption


Strong password encryption provides an early barrier against attack. TheSolaris 9 12/02 release provides four password encryption modules. The MD5modules and the Blowfish module provide more robust password encryption thanthe UNIX algorithm.You specify the algorithms configuration for your site in the`/etc/security/policy.conf` file. In the `policy.conf` file, the algorithmsare named by their identifier, as shown in the following table.Table 2–1 Password Encryption AlgorithmsIdentifier|Description|Algorithm Man Page —|—|— `1`|The MD5 algorithm that is compatible with MD5 algorithms on BSD and Linuxsystems.|crypt_bsdmd5(5) `2a`|The Blowfish algorithm that is compatible with the Blowfish algorithm on BSDsystems.|crypt_bsdbf(5) `md5`|The Sun MD5 algorithm, which is considered stronger than the BSD and Linuxversion of MD5.|crypt_sunmd5(5) `__unix__`|The traditional UNIX encryption algorithm. This algorithm is the defaultmodule in the `policy.conf` file.|crypt_unix(5)
