    Hi all!

    Solaris 8 is running on the system. After an init 6, the permission
    and owner of partition /tmp has changed.

    Any ideas where I could prevent this frokm happening ?

    Where can we set the default permission ?

    Thanks !

    What did it change from, and to?
     

    There's probably a good reason Solaris is setting it to what it
    is setting it to?
     

    What problem are you trying to fix by doing so? You might just be
    trying to do something that can be done a different way, better.

    It changed from :

    drwxrwxrwx sys:sys

    to :

    drw------- root:root

    When I start a third party application, it is trying to write to /tmp
    and gets a "permission denied". I need to manualy change the
    permission before starting it.

    Thanks !

    Thanks for the answer !

    Do you know a way to do it without shutting down the server ?

    Thanks !

    Schedule the downtime. if /tmp is a tempfs filesystem, you'll need to
    reboot to set underlying mount point. Unless you can kick everyone off
    the system, shut down all applications, and the processes accessing /tmp
    (essentially the same as rebooting), I don't see any other way around
    this.
