On each node in the cluster, you need to create the Instant Messaging runtime user and group under which the components will run. The UID and GID numbers must be the same on all nodes in the cluster.
Runtime User ID. The user name under which Instant Messaging server runs. This name should not be root. The default is inetuser.
Runtime Group ID. The group under which Instant Messaging server runs. The default is inetgroup.
Although the configure utility can create these names for you, you can create them before you run the configuration program, as part of the preparation of each node as described in this chapter. In addition, depending on whether you are using a local or shared disk, you may not run configure on a particular node and must manually create the runtime user and group ID.
The runtime user and group ID names must be in the following files:
inetuser, or the name you select, in /etc/passwd on all nodes in the cluster
inetgroup, or the name you select, in /etc/group on all nodes in the cluster
See the Sun Java System Instant Messaging 7 2005Q1 Administration Guide for instructions. Refer to your operating system documentation for detailed information about users and groups.
