Our environment consist a UVMS release 6.4 that we are upgrading to 6.10.51
But we need to change ownership from root to a non-privileged user like univa.
How can we achieve that?
Release : 6.10
Component : Univiewer Management Server
1. First, it would be adviced to upgrade UVMS / UVC to a recent version like 6.10.x as root.
2. Then you should create the user and group in the system and allow the ulimit -n of the UVMS user (on this example univa) to be superior to 8000 (ie 8192).
For example add this into /etc/security/limits.conf:
univa hard nofile 8192
univa soft nofile 8192
3.Stop the uvms and assign the UVMS folder and startup scripts or Linux services to the new user/group (univa/univa) while being connected as root:
chown -R univa:univa uvms_folder
4. Then log in as the new user (univa) and start UVMS
