Connect Direct UNIX: Connect Direct Agent stopAgent.sh

Currently root or a user that has sudo access is the only way that the stopAgent.sh can be executed.  This needs to be changed so that the installer can stop the Agent without having sudo or root access.

What is your industry? Non-Industry Specific
How will this idea be used?

The installer for Connect Direct UNIX needs to be able to run the stopAgent.sh without having root or sudo access.

    Thank you very much for opening this enhancement request with us. I have reviewed it thoroughly with my team and we believe we can make improvements in options to allow or disable the C:D Agent. I will accept this enhancement request, to focus on making improvements, but the actual design may differ from what you've specifically requested. Thank you very much for using the enhancement request tool and if you uncover other ideas that we should consider please do let us know.

    Thanks,

    Chris Sanders
