LMS 3.2 - issues with /var permissions on Solaris 10


I have been attempting a restore using the script but it was repeatedly failing 70% of the way through the RME restore.

I discovered that the script was changing the directory permissions for /var and /var/adm from root:sys 755 to root:root 700 causing the restart of daemons to fail because of denied permissions.

What could be causing this change in permissions to /var and /var/adm to occur? Is it an error with the script?

I was able to successfully restore using the script after changing the /var and /var/adm permissions back to root:sys 755 BUT only after the restorebackup script had changed them to root:root 700 during execution.

The failed log is attached.

Re: LMS 3.2 - issues with /var permissions on S

There is no where in the restore code where anything is explicitly chmod'd to 0700.  In fact, the RME restore code will attempt to preserve ownership of /var and /var/adm.  Perhaps the permissions in your RME filebackup.tar file are already 0700 for /var and /var/adm?
