Daemon User

Sorry, moved this to the newbie impolite of me.

I'm a Linux noob, but have been working with JBoss for a while now on windows. I am trying to follow JBoss's doc on getting the server to run as a service. I am attempting to create a user for this daemon. I believe I have it correct, yet when I attempt to run the service script I get the following:

[root@localhost opt]# /opt/jboss-4.0.1sp1/bin/ start
CMD_START = cd /opt/jboss-4.0.1sp1/bin; /opt/jboss-4.0.1sp1/bin/ -c all
su: warning: cannot change directory to /opt/jboss-4.0.1sp1/bin: Permission denied
This account is currently not available.

My thought is that this has something to do with the jbossd user account that I created.

From etc/passwd:
jbossd:x:501:3:JBoss Server:/opt/jboss-4.0.1sp1/bin:/sbin/nologin

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
