Creating wxadmin and wxroot users before installing KAP

by markc » Wed Feb 26, 2014 9:59 am

Is it OK to create the wxadmin and wxroot Linux users before installing the KAP software? If so, are there any restrictions on the uid or gid values to use, or any other issues to be aware of?

The KAP software is designed to cope with the wxadmin and wxroot users pre-existing. The only issues to be aware of are:

1) They must be members of the wxadmin group, as the install process will not modify anything related to these users if they already exist.

2) From 8.1, there is an additional user and group, wxextern, which you should also create and standardise across all nodes. This user does not need any special permissions - it is just used as the default user for running external scripts.
