You can install SharePlex as a root user. When you install as a root user, the installer prompts you to select whether or not to create the SharePlex user groups. When the installer creates the groups, it adds the SharePlex Administrator user to the spadmin group. For more information about these groups, see Assign SharePlex users to security groups.
