Summary0003242: WIRCD requires Administrator or System account to run as system service
DescriptionWIRCD hangs up and then dies being started as system service under non-administrative account. This happens since it requires (probably full) access to SCManager. System audit reports that it tries to block entire services database.
Additional InformationI think it needs no justification, that chat-server should not be executed under privileged account.

Besides, IMHO system service does not need to operate with SCManager database. Maybe adding some command string parameter (like '-service') to UnrealIRCD service command line can help to distinguish between user and system service modes of operation and prevent WIRCD interacting with SCManager when in system service mode.
TagsNo tags attached.

For what I know, in Windows, only administrators can add/delete/modify system services.
