Enabling rsh in Solaris 10

If the server has been hardened with SUNWjass, then these steps are required:

Edit /etc/default/login and ensure root can login to more than the console device.
Edit /etc/pam.conf and enable rsh and rlogin for rhosts authentication.
Edit /etc/hosts.allow and enable in.rshd and in.rlogind for access to other network devices.
Enable rsh by executing svcadm enable svc:/network/shell:default.

Test by rsh date
