Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9
On installation, Sentinel creates its own install dir, known as
$ESEC_HOME. By default, this is in /opt/sentinel188.8.131.52.
If, however, the customer specifies containing directories (
/opt/novell/sentinel5 e.g. ) the parent directories are left with
root ownership. If this installation occurs on a system with
restrictive umask, the 'esecadm' user will not be able to even
descend into the $ESEC_HOME directory, and all services will fail
(when attempting to start via init.d, a permission denied messages
Note: the install guide states that for the Oracle install
umask must be set to '022' this also applies to the Sentinel
Check the umask of the directories and make sure it is set to'022'
An enhancement has been created for the install to be more
robust in handling a restrictive umask.
