Restricted users Access to File System RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are using DeployR Open on a windows server 2008 R2.

    In the documentation it says

    "By default, R sessions executing on the DeployR grid are not authorized to access files or directories outside of the R working directory"

    But I can upload simple script that reads a file on the C:\ drive with a user that has BASIC_USER rights

    t <- read.table("C:\\MyFile.csv")

    Is there another way to lock down access?

  • The Windows Service, RServe7.4, runs as a local system account.  You can change the "Log on" account for the service to a local user account (i.e.  johndoe).  All R Processes created by RServe will then have the permissions of that  user
