Privileged User Access
- Updated on 19 Jul 2022
During installation, various config files, paths, and system resources may need to be modified. Thus, installation of Itential software will require temporary root access via
sudo. This temporary root access is only required during new installations and major upgrades if using the
installer.bin method. Temporary root access post-installation can be replaced with a limited set of
sudo commands as listed below. To run
sudo as a root user, it is recommended that Itential admins have privileged user account access for updating configuration files. Since those files are owned by the application user, admins will need to switch as a different user, which provides the necessary security privileges to upgrade and configure IAP.
This command lets you switch as an
<itential> application user to view/edit configuration and log files.
sudo su - itential
The following is a list of recommended post-installation
sudo commands using
pronghorn for IAP:
/bin/systemctl start pronghorn.service /bin/systemctl stop pronghorn.service /bin/systemctl restart pronghorn.service /bin/systemctl enable pronghorn.service /bin/systemctl disable pronghorn.service ---- /bin/journalctl * pronghorn.service
You will want to replace
pronghorn with the service you want to control such as
rabbitmq-server. Keep in mind these commands are only the basic
sudo commands a user might need, along with the command that provides the ability to switch as an
<itential> user for editing configuration files.
