I've been doing some testing with the Linux agent.  I did a default install and then scheduled a scan using the snowcron command. I noticed that the agent was running as root:

Snow agent runs as root

Is it necessary that the agent runs as root?  I'm testing the linux agent v5.0.1.


Thanks!  David
