More Sun Ray questions

Another email about Sun Ray:

do you know how to set it so it doesn't automatically lock the screen when you take your card out (just coz makes for a much more impressive 'session portability' demo if you move the card to another sunray and the same screen instantly appears without any keyboard intervention)?

You are right, as a demo it certainly does. The answer is in the utxlock man page:

Note - Although some users may find screen locking an inconvenience, overriding it has security implica- tions that should be obvious. Override at your own risk. A user may disable any screen lock behavior by setting the environment variable SUN_SUNRAY_UTXLOCK_PREF to NULL. Any other value will be used as a command line to use for invok- ing a screen lock command instead of the default behavior.

Remember to set your MANPATH to include /opt/SUNWut/man and run “catman -w -M /opt/SUNWut/man” so that “man -k” will do it's stuff. If the keepers of my Sun Ray server are reading this can you please run “catman -w -M /opt/SUNWut/man” on our Sun Ray servers. Actually can you just install the new SRSS software please.

I didn't know about the ENV variable. However, I just put an exit in at the top of the utxlock file.

While editing the file works it is really not recommended as it could get over written in a patch and would get over written in an upgrade.
