I'm setting up new DB2 Database Systems right now and I was wondering about something I could not find in IBM Documentation.
I know what the fenced user is for and stuff, but does this user need:
a) a login shell
b) a home directory
For security concerns I don't want to give this user a loginshell.
I was just thinking if this is really neccessairy. For what I know is that the fenced user is most likely the DB2 pendant to the nobody user that can run a process but is not a system user.
Question might be stupid, but I was just wondering about this.
