Subject Solr user account requires login?
Date Tue, 05 Feb 2019 18:12:29 GMT
Hello,

After following the install guide and setting up the Solr user as described below, Nessus
compliance scans are stating that the 'solr' user should have /usr/sbin/nologin, but the dev
team is saying that setting the nologin will render the account unusable. Does the solr account
need an interactive login?
This was the guidance followed for the solr user:
Create the Solr User

Running Solr as root is not recommended for security reasons, and the control script<https://lucene.apache.org/solr/guide/7_1/solr-control-script-reference.html#solr-control-script-reference>
start command will refuse to do so. Consequently, you should determine the username of a system
user that will own all of the Solr files and the running Solr process. By default, the installation
script will create the solr user, but you can override this setting using the -u option. If
your organization has specific requirements for creating new user accounts, then you should
create the user before running the script. The installation script will make the Solr user
the owner of the /opt/solr and /var/solr directories.

You are now ready to run the installation script.
