i have a few java apps running on my server and I set it up so that each app is executed with a nologin user id.
now, when I add users with
/usr/sbin/useradd -g $MY_GROUP -s /sbin/nologin -d /home/$MY_USER $MY_USER
I was wondering if there is a convention on whether those users need a home at all and if they do - should I put them into
I've seen it done both ways
