universal passwords and system accounts

The OESCommonProxy accounts already have a Common_Proxy_Policy
assigned to them. But there are other accounts such as wwwrun,
novlxregd, novlxsrvd, and <servername>admin in my tree. If I apply my
UP policy to the Org Unit, it will affect these accounts since they
don't have a policy directly applied. What is the best way to handle
this?

Regards,
Ken

Re: universal passwords and system accounts

Yes, it will probably affect them, but only if they are ever used for a
regular login (with a password) which is not how they are used. Most of
the time service accounts (correctly) do not have passwords, and are not
really logged-into, but instead the system just uses those accounts
('root' can do anything or become anybody without a password prompt) to
run executables for services like Apache httpd or Apache Tomcat.

Good luck.
