    User ID Requirement Issue ?


    Have a specific user ID requirement
    Am looking for a user ID specifically for the migration testing/migration [userid= migration]
    ==> it is only required for two servers; server1 & server2
    ==> the user needs to have read/write access (sftp) to the following directories [ideally, writes files to this directory with '777' access (so other userid's can collect the files)

    server1:/export/O2IE/MIGRATION_TOOLS/MIGRATION_FILES
    server2:/home/tginstall/MIGRATION_TOOLS/MIGRATION_FILES

    Alternatively, we could use one of the existing ID's but it would need its permissions changed to allow it access the above directories and read/write to it... which is messier I think

    What do you think; is it reasonable to set up this user ID?

    Friends, Could you please give your ideas on the above issue. Please respond as soon as possible with the action you take to remedy this situation.


    Regards,
    Aparna.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    You can certainly do this, but make sure that the numerical ID is the same on both systems, otherwise you will have to do a lot of chmod or chown commands and the user will need root or sudo privileges (not a good idea if avoidable). Alternatively, give a trusted user account on each system sudo privileges. You can restrict them to only the actions that are required - full root access will likely not be required.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
