Creating Oracc

This document explains how to create Oracc once you have installed the prerequisites.

The Oracc User




Now that Oracc is installed, you need to finish up the installation of the root-only tools:

cd ${ORACC}src/sys
cd ${ORACC}/00
chown root:oracc sys
chmod go-rx sys

Finally, edit the root-only script to set a default password for new project accounts. Change the line:

## echo -n ******** /usr/bin/passwd --stdin $project

To uncomment it, and replace ******** with the default password. The root ownership and restrictive permissions will ensure that no one is able to see this.

After saving the file and exiting your text editor, use `exit' to logout of being root.
