Environment

Novell GroupWise 7
Novell GroupWise 8
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11
Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2) Linux

Situation

Files in the Domain Directory and Post Office Directory have executable permissions
DBCOPY creates files in the Domain and Post Office Directory with executable permissions
ConsoleOne creates the Database and DC files in the new domain with executable permissions

Resolution

When a directory is mounted using ncpmount on a Linux Server, all the files are presented as executables and dbcopy copies the files with executable permissions except for wpdomain.db and wphost.db. Similarly, if the Domain Directory is mounted using ncpmount and a new Domain is created while being connected to the Domain that is being presented through ncpmount, the files in the new Domain Directory will be created with the executable permissions as ConsoleOne creates the files with the same permissions as the connected Domain. 

Workaround Steps:
  1. Lauch a Shell Konsole on the Linux Server or Open a terminal session or connect to the server using putty
  2. Navigate to the Domain Directory using the cd command
  3. Type "find . -type f -print0 | xargs -0 chmod -x -v" without quotes and press Enter

    The same command can be used against a Post Office Directory to remove executable permissions from the files in the Post Office Directory
