Summary: restoring permissions on a solaris2.6 system with tripwire?

Most people pointed out that in /var/sadm/install/contents the
default-permissions for the solaris-installed files are mentioned.

Casper told:

You can start out by runnign "pkgchk -f"; this will correct ownership
and file permissions for all standard Solaris files.

This includes some but not all device entries; and, of course, none of the files you've installed yourself. ---

which probably uses the above files.

Unfortunately nobody had something to use the tripwire database, so we did a lot by hand based on its output. The machine was up&running again Friday.

Thanks everybody.
