Hi, I would like to know what is setid in coreadm? If I enable them then does it mean any process whose euid is root would create core file incase of abnormal termination ?
hello@sun10$coreadm | grep setid

      global setid core dumps: disabled

 per-process setid core dumps: disabled

    Accepted Solution

    Normally, when a setuid program crashes, it does not create a core file because of security reasons. If these opetion in coreadm are set, then setuid (or setgid for that matter) programs will produce a core file, but it will be owned by root and only readable by root.
