The PMDF security configuration file is located via the
PMDF_SECURITY_CONFIG_FILE logical (OpenVMS) or PMDF tailor
file option (UNIX), or Registry entry (NT) and hence is usually the
security.cnf located in the PMDF table directory.
If no security configuration file exists, reasonable defaults are
assumed by PMDF. A sample security configuration file corresponding to
those internal defaults is shipped with PMDF as the file
security.cnf-sample in the PMDF table directory.
To override PMDF's internal defaults, or specify additional,
site-specific settings, create a
security.cnf file (more
specifically, create the file which is pointed to by
PMDF_SECURITY_CONFIG_FILE), and then update any compiled
PMDF configuration and restart the PMDF Dispatcher as discussed in
