Windows - How to boot Tuxedo Using User Privileges Rather Than tuxipc (Doc ID 1283726.1)

Last updated on APRIL 23, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Tuxedo - Version 10.3.0 and later
Microsoft Windows (32-bit)
Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit)

Goal

On Windows -- How to boot Tuxedo using user privileges rather than tuxipc:

When a restricted user boots Tuxedo on Windows, we want the Tuxedo servers to inherit the privileges of the user starting it rather than inheriting the privileges from the BEA Proc Manager service (i.e. tuxipc.exe with SYSTEM privilege).

If tuxipc is running as 'SYSTEM', then currently any user of the Windows system could boot Tuxedo to launch any process as the 'SYSTEM' user thereby elevating their privileges.
