QUESTION - what user context does DFM run under after installed?

emanuel

Hello all

After installing DFM on a host ( windows or unix ) - typically as the local root or administrator user ... what user context does the application run under?  is it still root / administrator or can it be changed to another user?

Thanks.

Hi,

If you've installed the application as a root/administrator - DFM would

automatically register that user as an "administrator with full

global-write permissions". You can add more users (local users/active

dir. Users) under the following location

Control center -> Setup -> Administrative users

Hope that helps.

Thanks and regards

Hello Shiva

This is more less what privliage the application runs under, for example in Windows the appication would run as SYSTEM.  In unix it would run as either ROOT or NOBODY.

the customer is asking if there is a way to change this to some other user

Hi Emanuel,

On Windows: have you tried editing the services (at services.msc)?

On Linux, Have you tried "sudo -u USER dfm service start"?

Hope that helps

Thanks and regards
