  • Article Type: General
  • Product: Aleph
  • Product Version: 20
  • Relevant for Installation Type: Dedicated-Direct; Direct; Local;

Desired Outcome/Goal:
To assign 'aleph' user rights to another Unix user

The "aleph" user account in Unix is used by the system administrator, for various online utilities and command line activity. The "aleph" user has access and control over all the libraries in the system.

If another Unix user needs these same permissions, copy the file .cshrc to the user's home directory as follows:
cp /exlibris/users/<ALEPH user>/.cshrc /exlibris/users/<XXX> (XXX - the name of the new Unix user)

Home directory for user jsmith, for example: /exlibris/users/jsmith
