Problem



A Forum reader recently asked:



"What do I need to do to switch from a root to a nonroot user for running edirectory 8.8? My goal is not to change port rather switch from root user to start the edir instance to non-root user. As long as I give the non-root user file permision to the directory where eDirectory is installed, I should be able to switch to that user, right?"



And here's the response from Juergen Schulz ...



Solution



Under Solaris (I tested it with Solaris 10) you can give a user privileges. If you want a user to allow access to ports lower than 1023, then log out this user and give him privileges with this:



usermod -K defaultpriv=basic,net_privaddr USERNAME



After the next login, the user will have access to these ports.
