    PROBLEM:

     

    What does the nouser entry in a generated users file on a BSA Target Server mean?
     

     


    CAUSE:

    N/A


    SOLUTION:

     

    The users file that BSA (ACL Push Job) pushes to an agent can also include a nouser entry. Including this entry instructs a server to allow a connection from a user only when that user has been explicitly defined in the users configuration file.
    If nouser is not specified, users which are not listed in the users file can connect but will receive a default mapping to the "nobody" user on Unix agents and the Anonymous user on Windows agents.
    BMC Server Automation places a nouser entry in the users file of a particular server if the server property called PUSH_ACL_NO_USERS_FLAG is set to true.
