#1305 closed defect (wontfix)

fam needs a discussion of fam.conf

Reported by: bdubbs@… Owned by: bdubbs@…
Priority: high Milestone: 6.2.0
Component: BOOK Version: SVN
Severity: normal Keywords:


By default, fam installs /etc/fam.conf that has th eline:

untrusted_user = nobody

If user nobody does not exist, famd fails on startup. The book should create a special system user, famd, and update the /etc/fam.conf file to use that user.

Also, for security, local_only ought to be changes to true.
