Issue/Introduction

I am investigating a RACF ICH408I msg we have across many of our Web Viewer WebSphere cells such as this in our production system : 
ICH408I USER(WPYSYS ) GROUP(WPYCFG ) NAME(DMGR DAEMON,CR AND S) 
derby.log CL(DIRACC ) FID(D7D6C5C4F4F349A100000000001D0001) 
INSUFFICIENT AUTHORITY TO OPEN 
ACCESS INTENT(-W-) ACCESS ALLOWED(OTHER R-X) 
EFFECTIVE UID(0000005403) EFFECTIVE GID(0000005400) 

We are using DB2 for our external database.

It's strange as no path is given for the location of derby.log.



























 

Cause

Someone must have changed the permissions on derby.log as that is a log for internal use only.

Environment

WebSphere
DB2
Tomcat

Resolution

The derby.log is an internal database that Web Viewer is using and is located right below your Web Viewer install folder: 
Check the file ${CAOMWV12_HOME}/derby.log . The derby.log is used internally as a workarea and should not be a concern for you. It is not useful for troubleshooting.

Change the derby.log access to 777 (-rwxrwxrwx)  to resolve the RACF access error message.
 

Additional Information

​NOTE: The derby.log was also found in the /CA_OM_Web_Viewer directory.
