Actually, what we are trying to do is to run the adapter configurator using a different owner from the software owner. The sofware owner is “eai” while the user to run the configurator is “eaidev”. Both “eai” and “eaidev” belong to the same group ie. “eaigroup”.
We are running the adapter configurator via the shell script provided by the webMethods software ie. adapter_config found in /webMethods/EnterpriseAdapter/bin
We have also set the permissions for adapter.cfg such that it is writeable to both users at the group level. The directory in which the adapter.cfg resides is also set to group writeable. ie at /webMethods/activesw/adapters40
Currently, the adapter monitor process is started up by the user “eai”. So are u saying that if we want to run the adapter configurator as the user “eaidev”, the process has to be owned by that user instead ie. “eaidev”?
FYI, running the configurator as the user “eai” has no problems but we would like our developers to use a different id from the software owner when running the configurator. So is this doable? Thanks for your help!
