Removing the dependency on OS local user credentials for installing the IBM Datastage product
We are not able to install “IBM InfoSphere Datastage v11.5” on new VSI
We are trying to install “IBM InfoSphere Datastage v11.5” product on new Linux host & as pre-requisite we are supposed to have product related ID’s created on OS before install which should have “static” password & may require “no-expiry”( fixed password) for future use (this is post installation part).
We are working on Data center migration project and on new Linux host due to new security policy we are not allowed to create any local users on Linux machine. So we will not be having any local OS user id/static password.
We are trying to install the IBM Datastage on new linux machines and we are not able to install due to Security issues related to local id/password as we are not allowed to have them.
So to install IBM datastage product we would need few of product related id's created locally prior to the installation , so this case is not possible for us.
