Srujan Pathuri said:Hi All,- Could someone please explain me the importance of creating a dedicated "AE" user before installing Linux agent and why can't we just go with our domain Active Directory user. Any specific reason behind it.
Can I create a user named "ae" instead of "AE" or else something readable username like "automic"
Sure, go nuts! As long as you stick to the OS-specific requirements for a user name, I don't see any problem. In fact, we also don't use "AE" but something else. In the interrest of general well-being, I recommend to stick to something in plain ASCII, no more than eight characters (otherwise it gets cut off in certain situations) and start with a plain letter. And keep it all lower case.
Using upper case for UNIX user names, like "AE" ... well that's bad form in my books anyway, at least on Linux.
