Expeditor Server, depending upon which features are configured, requires certain user IDs and groups to be configured in the user repository. These user IDs and groups must already be configured in the user repository before installing and configuring the services of Expeditor Server.
Client Management Services and DB2® Everyplace® Synchronization Server require the following:
- An administrative user. The default is "xpdadmin". This user ID is used to configure Client Management Services as well as by the runtime to access WebSphere® services that require authentication. See Required administrative roles for information on WebSphere role requirements. This user ID does not require write access to the user repository.
- An administrative group. The default is "xpdadmins". This group is used to control access to the Client Management Services and DB2e Everyplace Synchronization Server management interfaces. Any valid user ID that belongs to this group can administer both Client Management Services and DB2e Everyplace Synchronization Server. See Required administrative roles for information on WebSphere role requirements.
DB2 Everyplace Synchronization Server has additional group requirements:
- DB2 Everyplace synchronization group. The default is "xpdsyncusers". All DB2 Everyplace synchronization users must belong to this group.
- At least one DB2 Everyplace user group that begins with the prefix "DB2e", such as "DB2eEmployees".
WebSphere MQ Everyplace does not require any userids and groups to complete the installation.
Administrator IDs require that the value for common name (for instance, CN) be the same as the value for account ID (for example, logon name). You can configure this by setting the first name to the value of account ID and leaving the last name and middle initial blank.
For information on the allowed values for the required users and groups, see Supported naming conventions
