Re: Permission Denied /groupwise/java.pid

That stopped the error message....

so i stopped gwadminservice, then restarted and it came back (obviously) but changing the permissions did stop the messages in the log.

Re: Permission Denied /groupwise/java.pid

Hi,

That means a user other than root is doing a checkproc on that file. I'm not sure how to find out what user/where though.

Let me ponder on that for a while.

Cheers,

Re: Permission Denied /groupwise/java.pid

Hi,

All looks good there as far as I can see.

Ok, chmod 644 on the java.pid file and let's see what happens please.

Thanks,

Re: Permission Denied /groupwise/java.pid

Hi,

Okay, that is exactly what I expected.

Seriously, I don't know the root cause of the problem. The only work around at this point will be to run the chmod 644 after the service is stopped/started. Alternatively we could start messing with the init script file, but I'm loathe to do that as we could introduce a boat-load of other problems with the tiniest of typo's or things like that.

I'll ponder a bit more and hopefully come up with something else that's going to work.

Enjoy your weekend.

Cheers,
Laura Buckley
