Issue/Introduction

When a Unix/Linux server is rebooted, upon server startup, the init script that calls unistart launches a reorganization that creates a log file called $UNI_DIR_LOG/reorganization.log with root ownership.

This prevents the node startup when the owner of the node is a different user and the following kind of message appears in the startup script:

 

grep: /dollar_universe_folder/log/reorganization.log: Permission denied
----------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------

#--------------------------------------------------
# ---> ERROR:
# -------------------------------------------------

-----> Reorganization in error!!
Cannot start the instance.

#--------------------------------------------------
# Procedure aborted.
# -------------------------------------------------

 

The procedure unistart should create the reorganization.log as the owner of the node and not as root.

Environment
