IssueWhat are the noexec settings in /etc/system on Solaris?
CauseIn recent documentation Sun is advising customers running Solaris to have the following two settings entered in /etc/system

        set noexec_user_stack = 1
        set noexec_user_stack_log = 1

These settings do not have any bearing on any RSA Security software that runs on Solaris. Therefore they may be present along side settings that RSA Security does specify for its products.
ResolutionAny enquiries about what these settings might do should be directed to Sun Microsystems support.
