10. Root user and appadmin user¶
appadmin are system users known in the
/etc/passwd file of the underlying Linux operating system. These users can
be used to login the Appliance Management UI.
While the user
root can be used to login to the machine via console or SSH,
appadmin is only allowed to login to the Management UI. Therefore
root can change the password of the user
appadmin but the user
appadmin can not change the password of the user root (except he can
provide the correct root password). Both the users
are allowed to change the passwords of all the LinOTP token administrators.
