Documentation | Internals | Accounts
Centova Cast requires two UNIX user accounts for correct operation on a Linux server. The accounts are:
The Centova Cast web interface and related daemons operate under this account.
The Centova Cast control daemon runs under this account. All client data is owned by this account.
These accounts are created automatically during installation and should not be removed.
Centova Cast requires one unprivileged Windows system account, named
centovacast, for correct operation
of the Windows daemon. All client data is owned by this account. This account is created automatically
during installation and should not be removed.
Additionally, Windows Media Services requires that each independent publishing point be owned by a separate
Windows user account. As such, Centova Cast will create a new user named
cast_USERNAME for each Centova
Cast user account, where
USERNAME is the account's Centova Cast username. These accounts are created with
as few privileges as possible, and are of course denied interactive logon rights (so that they can't obtain
remote desktop sessions).
