Goal

This document addresses nfs.server and tftpboot services may be open on a System Controller that has Solaris[TM] Security Toolkit software installed or System Management Services 1.5 with Secure by Default.

After following the document: "Securing the Sun Fire[TM] 12K and 15K System Controllers" at

http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E19957-01/817-1358-10/817-1358-10.pdf,

and using the "Solaris[TM] Security Toolkit"

http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E19056-01/sec.tk42/

your System Controller can still be used as your domain's Operating System installation server, but will leave open tftp and nfs.server until all clients have been removed.
