Before you begin
This topic describes how to run either a deployment manager or Application Server as root in WAS V6 when you previously used a non-root user ID on Linux and UNIX platforms in Version 5.x.

Step for this task

As a root user, run the following commands:where the profile name is dmgr run as a user in wasadmin with the primary group wasndgrp.cd $WASROOT/profiles/ chown -R wasadmin dmgr/ chgrp -R wasndgrp dmgr/ chmod -R 755 dmgr/ ... cd $WASROOT/profiles/dmgr/bin ./startManager.sh
Run an application server from a non-root user and the node agent from root
Run the deployment manager with a non-root user ID
