Using Oracle® Compute Cloud Service - Dedicated Compute Capacity - SPARC Model 300

Users and Roles

Become familiar with the user types and roles that are provided by default for the Oracle SPARC Model 300 Service so you understand which tasks are supported for them.

User Type and Roles
Service Compute Administrator (opc)
This administrator of instances is a less powerful role than root, and typically manages file systems and software installations. The default password for this account is solaris_opc. SSH public key authentication is the only method to log into your instance.
Service Compute Root Administrator (root)
This superuser of instances has full administrative access. The opc user must assume this role to perform certain administrative tasks like creating additional users. The root user cannot login directly, by default. The initial password for the root role is solaris_opc. Upon first logging into the root role you will be asked to change its password.
Service Storage Administrator (opc)
This administrator performs storage-related tasks like creating, deleting, resizing, and cloning storage volumes. The default password for this account is solaris_opc.

The opc account that Oracle initially provides on the instances is a limited-capability user login account. You can transition to a full administrative-capability root account once you have logged in as the opc user if you need full administrative access to the instance.

The opc account that Oracle provides on the ZFS Storage Appliance has capabilities limited to iSCSI volume creation, NFS share creation, and SNMP configuration and initialization. In addition, some limited administration capabilities are also allowed. No full administrative account is provided. Instead you must file a service request (SR) for more advanced administrative tasks to be carried out by Oracle personnel. Earlier releases of SPARC Model 300 service did not offer NFS capabilities. If your currently provisioned account does not have NFS configuration capabilities, you can raise a Service Request (SR) requesting that the internal MOS note ID 2355735.1 be applied to your M300 ZFSSA to enable these capabilities.

Note -  You can create additional compute instance users and roles as needed for your environment. The creation, modification, and deletion of users and roles requires root permissions.
