Hi,
> We use procServ to run IOCs on Linux using a non-root user id.
Thank you all for sharing your experience! After looking into this a bit 
closer it looks like I can do that as well. I was just hoping that 
procServ could save some work setting up permissions for log directories 
etc. by opening the log files as root and then dropping permissions. But 
this of course does not work since log files are closed and opened again 
when the process inside procServ is restarted...

> Are you seeing problems running procServ under a non-root account?
Nothing that cannot be sorted out... Just some non-optimal defaults of 
the Debian packages I am using.

Thanks,

Martin
