Applying Patches on ArcGIS Server for Linux (as root)

For various reasons, I had found I needed to be root to install ArcGIS Server on Centos.

I ran into my first problem with that configuration on patching, when the script halts with the following message "You must install this [patch] as ArcGIS Server Owner, do not install it as ROOT user."  I was able to successfully bypass this by commenting out this if block from the patch script (applypatch).

... so far, so good.
