Disabling Console root access for SD16Way Server

Can we disable the console root login for SD16 Way server, bcoz I got to allow the DC operators to use the Superdome console daily for checking H/w logs without enabling other options. Is tat possible, do suggest me a solution so that I can try it .

Hm, root can disable something, root can enable something. Not a good idea to disallow root access.

If your operators should only have access to the GSP, why not create an operator login to the GSP and don't give them the root account for the OS and the administrator account for the GSP.

Hope this helps!

Re: Disabling Console root access for SD16Way Server

Hi Torsten,

Thnx for the reply ....I truely to wat ever U have mentioned....by providing the operator access would they be able to reset or reconfigure or would they be able to power on & off an entity ....? If it is possible then there is no use in providing the operator access too right ...?

Thanks & Regards,

Re: Disabling Console root access for SD16Way Server

What exactly you intended your operators to do? Even an operator has to do some operations, including rebooting a partition.
The system can monitored from the OS using the diagnostics/EMS and other tools like ISEE.

IMHO, if somebody can "read and understand" what he sees inside the GSP, he should be able to take care about his actions.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
