Re: Seteuid "operation not permitted" error when using LSA for sshd
Thanks for responding so quickly.
In the security log I can see it has been assigned the privilege
SeTcbPrivilege. Security log entry:
Special privileges assigned to new logon.
Security ID: BUILDSERVER\cygwin_sshd
Account Name: cygwin_sshd
Account Domain: BUILDSERVER
Logon ID: 0x12c1c4
In User Rights Assignment it has the following privileges:
Act as part of the operating system
Adjust memory quotas for a process
Logon as a service
Replace a process level token
