Setting AdminServer security
Once you have installed OpenEdge with products that use the AdminServer, you can optionally set the user and/or group AdminServer security. You set this option on the command line to require an individual user and/or groups of users to provide valid values during the AdminServer startup process. OpenEdge products such as the following use the AdminServer: AppServer, WebSpeed, OpenEdge Adapter for SonicMQ, OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer, and Web Services Adapter.
The AdminServer user-group authorization feature allows you to require a level of security that enables only authenticated operating systems users and groups access to, and use of, the Admin Service.
To effectively set up this security option for your AdminServer use, review your security needs and current authenticated operating system users and groups to determine how you will set up this option during the OpenEdge installation process.
To implement the User-group Authorization feature on a UNIX platform, you must first successfully complete the installation program.
The following table identifies and briefly describes the purpose of each command-line option.
Table 24. User-group parameter options
Parameter name
Individual user name and password required
Requires a minimum of one user ID to be resolved for each AdminServer operation before it can be executed.
Group authorization required
-admingroup group [{,|:}group...]
Requires a minimum of one group to be resolved for each AdminServer operation before it can be executed.On a UNIX platform, a colon-separated list differentiates groups when you are specifying multiple groups on the command line.
On UNIX platforms, a group name can be any user-defined or NIS group name. UNIX can also support subgroups.
