Question 1: Can OFSAA Unix account be set up in a non-interactive mode where the password for that account is unknown and logons via the account are disabled? Due to a security requirement, there is a need to modify that Unix account to be non-interactive.

What are the implications for OFSAA if this change were to happen? Can OFSAA continue to function without an interactive account?
Question 2: Can the "ftpshare" feature be disabled or bypassed in OFSAA such that an interactive Unix account is not required?
