Do you need to save changes made in each session? If not, you can use
a kiosk session with a prototype directory.

Login as the user, change the settings, then copy their home directory
into the prototype directory for the kiosk session:


Create a session descriptor in /etc/opt/SUNWkio/sessions/user1.conf

KIOSK_SESSION_LABEL="User 1 mandatory profile"

Change the 'KIOSK_SESSION_EXEC' to whatever session script you are using.

Then use utkioskoverride -s -r pseudo.0003xxxxxxxx -c user1
to specify the kiosk session descriptor to use for the token.

Create different prototype directories for accounts that need to be
set up with different mandatory profile types.

The changes made by the user during the session will be destroyed, and
will be replaced with the mandatory profile.
