Hi, when i create a run program action, i can choose "run as" option to specify a user to run. <runprogram> <program>tar</program> <programarguments>-xzmf /tmp/dbinstall/MySQL-advanced-sles10.x86_64.tar.gz -C /opt/mysql</programarguments> <progresstext>${msg(Installer.Progress.unpackingDatabase.info)}</progresstext> <runas>mysqluser</runas> <onerroractionlist> <setinstallervariable> <name>needrollbackdbfiles</name> <value>true</value> </setinstallervariable> <logmessage> <text>fail to uncompress database package</text> </logmessage> </onerroractionlist> </runprogram>

i found the actual realize of this action is "su - mysqluser -c '...'" .but if i don't want the mysqluser has the log in priviledge, i need to set the initial shell for mysqluser to /bin/false and run the program using "su - mysqluser -s /bin/bash -c '...'" . how can i do that with "run as" option?

It is not possible with the <runas> option. However, you can simply just run the su command manually - i.e. specify

<runProgram> <program>su</program> <programArguments>- mysqluser -s /bin/bash -c "tar -xzmf /tmp/dbinstall/MySQL-advanced-sles10.x86_64.tar.gz -C /opt/mysql"</programArguments> <progressText>${msg(Installer.Progress.unpackingDatabase.info)}</progressText> <onErrorActionList> <setInstallerVariable> <name>needrollbackdbfiles</name> <value>true</value> </setInstallerVariable> <logMessage> <text>fail to uncompress database package</text> </logMessage> </onErrorActionList> </runProgram>
