at a running WinCC project we want to switch to the OS auth user administration. For security reasons, the server-side auth (at first for UI only) should be used. Then, according to online help, it is no longer possible to use the user root: But how do you log into the gedi? What's the workflow without a user root?
Thanks for taking my stupid questions
If you havent changed anything in default users, "para" without password should make it. It basically have the same permissions as root in a default WinCC OA project. Then you should just create your own root user to be used.
You actually found the good option
-user username:password. if no password -user username .
So for you for example, -user para (in the ui option from console). You can also use the config entry username.
Reference tables > Manager options > General options
But I agree that it sometimes can be hard to find something in the help.
Searching for "user" does not find this page but "username" gives a hit...
