starting with dtrace

Notes about setting up dtrace user on a Solaris 10 system: by default, it appears that normal users don't have enough privileges to access dtrace. These privileges are:

* dtrace_user
* dtrace_proc
* dtrace_kernel

and these are described in the privileges(5) man page.

So how do we add these privileges to a user account? According to, it's a matter of editing /etc/user_attr with a set of default privileges.
