File Permissions on Windows
The Ingres database supports the special security features of the NTFS file systems. The appropriate file security and permissions are set using the setperm utility. During the installation process, only the installation owner is given access to utilities with powerful abilities such as the Interactive Performance Monitor (IPM). Permissions can be modified to allow access to less privileged users, but doing so can compromise the security and integrity of the database.
