Can I run the SearchBlox service under a non-root user ID?

To run SearchBlox under a non-root user ID with sudo access, update the wrapper.conf file under:

/opt/searchblox/services/conf for Linux 


C:\SearchBlox Server\services\conf for Windows.

For Linux, update the following lines with the username, group and password:

# Application Account
# Equivalent to Posix sudo or windows runas
# Note Posix:
# <group>\<user> (note: use \\ in configuration file).
# If no group is configured default group of the user is used

If you need to use an NT Service Name, update the following section with the user account information:

# wrapper service user. only for windows. on *nix system this is root.
