Thanks for ur info... omran....

What i mean is MUST run using one id.......

(this is because of the licensing and performance issue......
only running with a single id can improve it's performance....
that's y I'm thinking on using rsh command.....)

I'm trying to use su command as well......
It's work with password prompted for that single id.

Is there any other ways to calling with a single id instead of using the login id?


How to make su command not prompt for password?
