    Unanswered: UNIX Access

    I am new to DB2 and have users that need access to run basic querry statements against my database; however, I want their access as limited as possible. When I created a user, it seems that by default they have access to login to my unix system (AIX) and as well have FTP access. I have changed their FTP access but I am not sure how I can lock them out of logging into the unix server without denying their access for DB2. Are there any default user settings that I can use to be sure their access is as limited as possible to the OS? Any suggestions would be greatly apreciated.

    Hello, have you tried disabling remote logins with smit? This should still allow DB2 logins.

    Regards,
    NK.

    I have disabled remote logins; however, should that be enough security prevention? This still allows the user to login to the console unless I assign a specific tty that is not accessible. I tried to disallow logins completely; however, this stops access for DB2 as well ...
