CautionDo not make modifications to the sensor through the service account except under the direction of TAC. If you use the service account to configure the sensor, your configuration is not supported by TAC. Adding services to the operating system through the service account affects proper performance and functioning of the other IPS services. TAC does not support a sensor on which additional services have been added.
NoteThe root user password is synchronized to the service account password when the service account is created. To gain root access you must log in with the service account and switch to user root with the su - root command.
CautionYou should carefully consider whether you want to create a service account. The service account provides shell access to the system, which makes the system vulnerable. However, you can use the service account to create a password if the administrator password is lost. Analyze your situation to decide if you want a service account existing on the system.
A service account provides access to the underlying unix shell of the IPS. Creating one is as simple as connecting to the IPS CLI and entering the following command:
username <usernmae> privilege service password <password>
You can also create the service account via the IDM/IME GUI by going to
Configuration => System Setup => Users
and adding a new user with the Service privelege level.
