This solution explains how to administer Unicenter Agent Technology agents on UNIX/LINUX when access to the root account is restricted. The unisrvcntr utility can be used in this case because it lets you add users to an authorization list to grant non-root users the ability to start, stop, and recycle any installation r11 service.
After installing NSM Agents on UNIX/Linux, only the root user has full permission to control Agent Technology agent services. A non-root user cannot stop these services.
To grant permission to non-root users to start and stop r11.x services, use unisrvcntr to add these users to the authorization list, specifying the service each user is allowed to control.
The syntax for this command is as follows:
unisrvcntr useradd --name=<username> service(s)
Note: To display help information on each of these commands, run:
unisrvcntr useradd --help
unisrvcntr userdel --help
