Register SUNW.Proxy_SMF_failover with a different user than root

I am registering a SUNW.Proxy_SMF_failover resource in a sun cluster 3.2.

The cluster resource needs to run with a different user than root.

I assumed the solaris.cluster.admin and solaris.cluster.modify role to my user and tried to register resources in the cluster with myuser. When the cluster resource is started is starting under the root user. If I enable the resource manualy using "svcadm enable nameofservice" the app is starting under myuser.

How do I register the service in a cluster to start with a different user than root?

You can specify the credentials that the startup emthod runs with, including the user name. This is the method-credential property. It is a subtype of the method_context clause, which is itself a subtype of the exec_method clause.

It looks like this;

               <method_context>
                        <method_credential
                                user='sys'
                                group='sys'
                                privileges='basic,file_dac_write' />
                </method_context>
