How come GS always add gsadmin to my new created security filter file?

Hi, i am explicitly using another security file abc-users instead of default-users by

set EXT_JAVA_OPTIONS=-Xmx512m -Dcom.gs.grid.secured=true -Dcom.gs.security.file.name=abc-users

When i created another security file abc-users, i realised that GS always allow gsadmin/gsadmin login even when its not defined..

Is this the usual case? because i want to restrict to 2 user which is 1. abcAdmin - Admin,Read rights 2. abcApps - Read,Write,Execute rights

Is there a way to remove this gsadmin? It seems that gsadmin/gsadmin is like a Super-user.

This is something that will be removed as part of R7.0 and maybe as part
of R6.6.4.

The gsadmin seems like compromising the security.

My abc-users file don't have gsadmin user defined, and it automatically created for me even when i constantly delete the user role again and again, with update of course..

And i have to explicitly overwrite the password with gsadmin1 and remove the admin role to stop this from happening, by doing

user: gsadmin password: gsadmin1 roles: none click update.

It ended up that my abc-users file have 1. abcAdmin - admin role 2. abcApp - read,write,execute role 3. gsadmin - no role.

This is silly but it somehow works.
