Can we run dscontainer as non root process. I have deployed dscontainer on k8s cluster as root user. However running as root user is not the best security practice. Is there a tested way we can reliably run ds389 as non root user. I tried tweaking security policies to use a non root user. However, I get errors during dscontainer start up. 
dscontainer certainly can run as non-root user, in the doc that you linked there is a securityContext section with runAsUser and fsGroup values that are set to 389, which is dirsrv user.

Can you share errors that you get?
