MMS On-Prem: credentialstool section should indicate root privilege required

    XMLWordPrintable

Details

    • 4
    • true

    Description

      This example line

      <install_dir>/bin/credentialstool --username <username> --password

      Should have sudo:

      sudo <install_dir>/bin/credentialstool --username <username> --password

      Using the bin/credentialstool requires access to the private "key" of the MMS installation. If you're using the packaged RPM or deb installation of MMS, then this private key file is located at /etc/mongodb-mms/gen.key and is filesystem-restricted to only user mongodb-mms. Therefore sudo/root access is required to use credentialstool.
