hello,
I have make one script shell, and i want this script shell are start with specific user.
add "su deploy" in my script is not good because avec this line is executed the script stop imediatly
and other solution :
#!/bin/sh
exec 2>&1
exec envuidgid deploy /home/deploy/deploy/run

generate error : "envuidgid: fatal: unable to run /home/deploy/deploy/run: exec format error"
I think is not possible to exec script shell with this solution, this solution work only with programe.

close this ssh conection for exec next line of my script shell ??

sudo is the best option for this (assuming you have it installed on your system)

You would create a sudo entry in sudoers (with the visudo command) like:

User_Alias     DEPLOYUSERS = user1,user2,user3
DEPLOYUSERS = ALL = (deploy) NOPASSWD:  /home/deploy/deploy/run

Then your calling script would simply be

sudo -u deploy /home/deploy/deploy/run

When you run the script, are you calling it from root account? If yes then

su user1 -c "/path/to/script args"

this will let you run the script as user user1 ( with group ids of which this user is a member)
