Some known bugs in Exadata X2-2 IB switches

After working on Exadata X2-2 for the last few months, here is something interesting that I discovered (but is already well known, as from here):

1. Bug 15715700 – world readable /etc/shadow.  Weird part now, is I can’t find this bug in MOS.

2. Bug 13494021 : CANNOT CHANGE PASSWORD FOR ILOM-ADMIN USER ON IB SWITCH

So here is the proposed steps to resolve these security issues (in case you need):

Bug 15715700 –

chmod 0400 /conf/shadow* /etc/shadow

Bug 13494021 –

cd /conf; 
cp -p shadow shadow.backup; 
cd /etc; 
cp -p shadow /conf/shadow; 
ln -sf /etc/shadow.ilom shadow
