    Starting App Servers as bladmin account (instead of root)?

    S Crawford

      We are currently running 7.5 and whenever we execute a shutdown/restart/startup of the application servers, we run the /etc/init.d/blappserv script to do this.  We run this script as root because the script does an su into bladmin.


      Does BMC / BladeLogic insist on this script being run as root or can it be started by someone who is logged in as the local bladmin account?  We are curious because we only primarily provide root to OS administrators and need to know if we should make an exception for the our BladeLogic support team.
