Description
Is it possible to not have to run the daemon as root? If so, what conditions have to be present on the UNIX system?

Solution

Yes it is possible to run the daemon from an account other that root. The conditions are as follows:

1. You cannot run the UNIX OS under C2 or higher security.

2. Every Attunity Connect workspace (including ACADMIN which Studio uses to administer the Connect environment) on that machine must use the same UNIX user as the daemon uses for its workspace account.

3. The navroot directory and every file and directory below it must be owned by this non-root account.
