    We would like to know if it's possible to work / mapped to user who is NOT root

      Hello,

      We would like to know / trying to map linux user to a root equivalent.

       

      On the linux server we did:

      Created a regular user named "blade"

      Edit the /etc/passwd and change the uid of blade user to "0" (equivalentto root)

      Su– blade, id shows us that we are root.

      Exports and users.local change the map to blade user instead of root

       

      When running agentinfo on the bl application server we got ???/??? (blade/blade) and no command worked remotely on the server (from the BL console)

       

      After that we created another user blade1 with gid 0 (meaning the user is in root group)

      agentinfo: showed us : 506/0 (blade1/root) but again no command worked…


      we look inside the online doc:

      https://docs.bmc.com/docs/display/public/bsa82/Client+mapping

       

      We would like to know if it's possible to work / mapped to user who is NOT root?

       

      Thanks a lot

       

      Erez
