experts,

       I am doing system maintence and I found an account called keyman in Solaris. I am new to Solaris and have not heard of this account as of yet. What does this account do? Is it mandatory? Will removing it break the system?

Thank You, MIssymadi

It is not a system account. But before removing it, check if there is any application running and owned by that user. You may check as well if it runs any crontab jobs
