In large environments it is recommended that the Master be used for administration and domain management rather than directly serving authentication/authorization requests from Server Agents.

To turn off authentication/authorization handling on the Master:

  1. Edit $BOKS_etc/boksinit.master.
  2. Comment out the line for "bridge_servc_r". Simply add a hash (#) to the beginning of the line.
  3. Save the file.
  4. Restart BoKS (boksadm -S Boot).

NOTE - This change will not survive an upgrade, so be sure do to this again if you upgrade BoKS.

NOTE - Another way to turn off authentication service to Server Agents is to disable broadcast in $BOKS_etc/bcastaddr on all Server Agents and exclude the Master. For more information, see the BoKS man page bcastaddr(4).
