When BBjServices is run as a service it has access to devices such as mapped drives, printers, etc. as the user specified during the installation of BBj. To modify this user, refer to Sys Admin > Miscellaneous > Administration Wizard.

For access to the same device(s) as the currently logged on user, BBjServices can be run from the command line with a –noservice option. For example:

BBjServices -noservice

 

Starting UNIX BBjServices

To start BBjServices for GUI or character-based UNIX systems, run the following at the UNIX shell prompt:

bbjservices


The account that starts BBjServices determines the permission levels used for file and device access. When the user "root" starts BBjServices, BBjServices performs file/device operations on behalf of the connecting user according to the permission levels set for that user's system account. If that user does not have a system account, then BBjServices utilizes the permission levels of the "nobody" account. When a non-root user starts BBjServices, the permissions of that non-root user account determine the permissions of all file and device access for all users running BBj.
