    RPT Directory permission issue post 9.0.0 upgrade

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 9


    /etc/init.d/voyager start script for Linux that ships with Voyager 9.0.0 changes the permissions on /m1/voyager/xxxdb/rpt/ directory to 757.

    Jobs fail for consortia with multiple users that run jobs outside of the Voyager user.

    Defect Status

    Issue VYG-6052 is resolved for Voyager 9.1.0 and higher.

    Replication Steps

    1. Note that Circjobs 12 and 24 are unable to write .inp files to the /m1/voyager/xxxdb/rpt/ directory.
    2. Determine that the permissions on the /m1/voyager/xxxdb/rpt/ directory are incorrect (757).
    3. Change the permissions of /m1/voyager/xxxdb/rpt/ to 777 using chmod.
    4. Once the /etc/init.d/voyager script runs, the permissions are reverted back to 757.


    Edit /etc/init.d/voyager start script to change the permissions, as shown below:

    chmod 757 ${VOYAGER}/*/tmp
    chmod 757 ${VOYAGER}/*/rpt


    chmod 757 ${VOYAGER}/*/tmp
    chmod 777 ${VOYAGER}/*/rpt
