Hello,

In order to configure correctly our dynatrace agent (host
monitoring/linux), I need to know if the user starting the service need
to have a shell or if we can set the user with a no login option ?

Thank you very much

Hi,

yes the user running the host agent on linux needs to have a shell set.

If you set it to /usr/sbin/nologin the host monitor process won't start.
