Chapter 8. Users and Groups > Virtual Partitions and Users

Virtual Partitions and Users

Each Virutal Partition is like a separate server. This means that you have separate users in your respective Virtual Partitions. Any user-related information that needs to be shared between Virtual Partitions would be done in the same manner as sharing between physically separate servers. For instance, you may want to have users have the capability to remotely login from one Virtual Partition to another. You would accomplish this by setting up the appropriate network files in each Virtual Partition just as you would with separate servers.

The vPars are isolated from a software perspective, so it is just as if the users exist on different servers. In order to share information among users, such as a database of users, you would implement technology such as Network Information System (NIS). With NIS you could create a database of user information that would be shared among different systems, and in this case, different vPars because they are the same as different servers from a software standpoint.
