2.10 Only enable removable media daemon if absolutely necessary - Uncomment service 100155 in /etc/inet/inetd.conf (Solaris 9 or later)


This item only applies to Solaris 9 and later systems. This item re-enables the rpc.smserverd process that works with the volume manager and the CDE file manager application to automatically mount CD-ROMs and floppies when the user inserts new media into the system's drives (the mount command is normally a privileged command that can only be performed by the superuser). Be aware that allowing users to mount and access data from removable media drives makes it easier for malicious programs and data to be imported onto your network.
