Hello,

 

its not possible to use this command without root account.

There is no path specified for manually created profiles.

 

 

test:root> type cleanup
cleanup is /sbin/cleanup

I don't find that in admin or command guides.

Can you tell where I can find the extract from the documentation?

It's necessary for the customer.

Hello,

this kind of information is not documented as root account is not for customer/admin use. Root account is mainly for vendor troubleshooting purpose. Base on that mostly of command is available via admin accounts.

 

Unfortunatelly there is no simmilar command in fabos to achive same result, so only root account is way how to proceed.

 

I think that this disclaimer is enough for customer why not use commands under root account if its not recommended by vendor.
