I've just installed SMC 3.6.1 on a V210 running Solaris 9, following the instructions at


Everything appears to have started up correctly except for the web server.  On checking the log file I see the following:

Web user check failed: unable to become the user identity noaccess.
This may be due to one of the following:
- noaccess may not be a valid unix user.
- No permissions to read the noaccess home directory.
- No permissions to read the root (/) home directory.
- Invalid login shell for the user noaccess.

the /etc/passwd entry for noaccess is the default:

noaccess:x:60002:60002:No Access User:/:/bin/false

How/where does SMC determine which user to run the web server as?  There's nothing in the installation procedure that
mentions it.  Is it possible to start up the web server using a different identity?
