I have an issue regarding the PostgreSQL service account on my
machine. I work for IBM and I have to fulfil security checks for my
machine to make sure its safe. Anyway, it is flagging up the problem
that my account for postgres doesnt have a screensaver set with a
password?? Any ideas on what is causing this and how this can be
resolved?? Is it possible to set a screensaver password for a postgres
service account?? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
If you never log in as postgres from a GUI, then it doesn't matter. The
security checker should realize that the account is not a user account.
On my system
$ grep postgres /etc/passwd
$ grep postgres /etc/shadow
It is not possible to login as postgres directly.
