Overview

HP-UX SRP is a lightweight operating system virtualization solution that provides multiple isolated secure application execution environments in a single system and under a common HP-UX kernel. Each isolated execution environment (Container) is present as an independent system with its own virtual filesystems, services, hostnames, private user/group managements that enable workloads of different type or same type to execute independently.

The FileSystem-SRP delivers File System enhancements in user and kernel space that are required to support HP-UX SRP.

What is new in FileSystem-SRP 1.0 release?

Following are the features delivered in this product.

  • Virtual FileSystem(VFS) layer support for HP-UX SRP, which includes :

a. A private mounted filesystem list for each System Container

b. Support for Software Deployment operations in a System Container

  • Container aware /etc/mnttab driver

  • Container aware fuser(1M), bdf(1M) utilities

Expected behavior in the Container

  • The root (/) File System entry in a System Container is a dummy entry and is a new fstype    "srp_dummyvfs". Unmount of the root (/) File System entry in a System Container is not    supported. If you try to unmount “/”, it will fail.

  • For non-device mounts inside a System Container, mnttab driver will return the mount point path itself for the special file name, if the mount is issued by global administrator (of the host system) to a mount point inside a System Container. For such mounts, commands reading the mnttab like bdf(1M)/df(1M)/mount(1M) will display only mount point path for the special file name. Whereas for device mounts inside local SRP, mnttab driver will return the special file name, irrespective of whether the device path exists or not inside the System Container.

  • File Systems mounted by global administrator (of the host system) on a mount point inside a Container cannot be unmounted by a Container's administrator.

  • Few static File System commands and applications that call statvfsdev(3C) might not work inside the System Container because they need to be re-linked with C library. fsdaemon(1M) must have an entry in the System containers inittab(4). This entry will be added by future releases of HP-UX-SRP product.
