/etc/shadow read permission on Linux install


We're attempting to install JasperServer on SUSE linux.

The install process halts because it is unable to read the /etc/shadow file. Our internal systems team says it is not practical to dole out permissions to read /etc/shadow outside of the root role.

Is there any way to bypass the reading of /etc/shadow, perhaps by passing some parameter to the .run installation file?

Please wait while Setup installs JasperReports Server 5.1 on your computer.
