Securing M3 BE Installation Folder

The folder containing M3 Business Engine files should be additionally secured by changing the default NTFs permissions. In case M3 Adaptation Kit (MAK) is used to perform changes and to troubleshoot M3 BE, some additional changes to NTFS permissions are required, unless MAK users are members of the local administrators group.

Infor provides a group M3_MAK_Group which is automatically created. Make sure that M3 Adaptation Kit users are included in this group.

Infor also provides a group M3_Grid_Group which is automatically created. When installing an M3 BE environment, the Infor ION Grid user is automatically included in this group.

Securing M3 BE Installation Folder

  1. NTFS permissions on the M3 Business Engine installation folder are inherited from the M3 BE installation drive.

    During the installation of an M3 BE Environment, these permissions are added to the specified folders:

    Folder M3_MAK_Group M3_Grid_Group
    <M3BE_inst_folder> Read Modify
    <M3BE_inst_folder>\_db_data Modify Inherited from parent object
    <M3BE_inst_folder>\env\<env_name>\Fix Modify Inherited from parent object
  2. If applicable, ensure that M3 Adaptation Kit users are included in the group M3_MAK_Group.
