Changing ownership and permissions on UNIX

Normally, all log and configuration files are owned by the user designated by the agent configuration variable /agentSetup/defaultAccount. If you require the files to be owned by another user, change the PATROL_ADMIN environment variable in the shell script PATROL_HOME/../patrolrc.sh or PATROL_HOME/../.patrolrc. Then change the ownership of PATROL_HOME/log and PATROL_HOME/config directories and any files within those directories to the new user.

Before you begin

If the PATROL_HOME directory resides in a local file system and you do not have permission to change the ownership of the log and configuration directories, you may have to logon as root to perform 2 and 3.

If the PATROL_HOME directory resides in an NFS-mounted file system, you may have to logon as root in the NFS server computer where PATROL_HOME physically resides in order to perform 2 and 3.

Note

The /AgentSetup/defaultAccount and OSdefaultAccount variables can also be modified through configuration utilities.

To change ownership and permissions for files and directories

  1. Perform the appropriate action:
    • If you are using the sh or the ksh, modify the following line in PATROL_HOME/../patrolrc.sh:

      PATROL_ADMIN=user;export PATROL_ADMIN
    • If you are using the csh, modify the following line in PATROL_HOME/../.patrolrc:

      setenv PATROL_ADMIN user
  2. Change the ownership of PATROL_HOME/log and PATROL_HOME/config directories and any files within those directories by using the following command:

    chown -R user $<PATROL_HOME>/log $<PATROL_HOME>/config
  3. Change the group ownership by using the following command:

    chgrp -R groupname $<PATROL_HOME>/log $<PATROL_HOME>/config
