Release : All
Component : Spectrum Core / SpectroSERVER
- The Spectrum Process Deamon Service logs on with local system account and this process will run as “SYSTEM".
- It will start the child processes using the spectrum install owner account.
- On Windows, processd needs the user/password information in order to start the processes on behalf of another user so it needs to validate the password on startup.
