FRAM will not start and throws the message below.
On *nix, it's common to have users whose shells are restrictive, i.e. inhibit login. A common way of doing this is to have /usr/sbin/nologin as their shell.
Our FRAM service requires a shell in order to start correctly.
Our startup script /etc/init.d/framd does the following:
- Uses the "su" command to run a command as another user (init.d scripts are run by init as root), in this case nobody
- The framd-real script is the real script that starts FRAM
In the fault case, framd does not start because of the restricted shell for nobody.
Add an additional parameter to su which allows us to specify a shell:
This effectively bypasses /usr/sbin/nologin for the startup of FRAMd.

- In some cases where a user has run the installer twice on the same server, it's possible the /etc/init.d/framd script has been corrupted. If you do not see the command
