Issue/Introduction

Filewatcher cannot find a file on a dfs filesystem mounted to an HPUX server.

Environment

Product - Workload Automation AE 11.3.x
Product - Workload Automation Agents 11.x
Platform - HPUX

 

Resolution

The agent will use a UNIX function called 'glob' to search for the files.
See the 'man' page for 'glob' on an HP machine.
There is a particular part of the man page which explains what permissions are required for glob to work.
Below is a excerpt :
glob() is a path name generator.
pattern is a pointer to a path name pattern to be expanded.
If pattern contains any of the special characters *, ?, or [, pattern is matched against all accessible path names.
In order to have access to a path name, glob() requires:
+ Search permission on every component of a path except the last.
+ Read permission on each directory of any file name component of pattern that contains any of the above special characters.
