We recommend that Inca be run under a regular user account and not as root for the following reasons:
To best detect user-level problems, Inca should be run under a regular user account with the default environment setup.
Inca does not require any special privileges to run.
Furthermore, we recommend that a valid GSI credential be obtained for this regular user account so that tests of Grid software requiring proxy certificates can be executed. Please request a GSI credential from your virtual organization's Certificate Authority (CA) and consult your organization's security policy regarding GSI credential use. Section 5.7 describes using proxy credentials in the Inca framework.
