HCL Workload Automation, Version 9.4

Umask settings for UNIX root user

About this task

If you install on Windows operating systems, consider the following information.

If the umask settings for the UNIX root user are too restrictive, the temporary directories and files that are created during the installation are neither accessible nor executable by the DB2 user. Before installing HCL Workload Automation or one of its fix packs, ensure that umask is set to 022.

To verify that umask is set to the correct value, from a command prompt, run the following command:
If the value is different from 022, modify it by running the following command:
umask 022

You can restore the desired umask setting for the root user after the product installation has been completed.
