#22 closed enhancement (fixed)

need more information on creating rasdaman user in inst-guide and external-guide

Reported by: hicksa@… Owned by: pbaumann

Component: manuals_and_examples Version:
Keywords: Cc:


Both documents mention creating a rasdaman user but give no details of that user.

Should the user be a regular user or a system user (i.e. a daemon)?
Should the user have a specific home directory?
Should the user have a specific password, and is that password required in the rasdaman configuration?

An example of user creation would be useful.

It depends on your use, if you want to be able to login as rasdaman and use it as a regular user, then this would be enough:

useradd rasdaman -m

It could as well be a system user account, the rasdaman RPM e.g. creates and runs rasdaman under a system user:

useradd rasdaman -r
