Issue/Introduction

We have noticed recently that when we start the DevTest Portal it is being started as root rather than the user we are connected to the machine as.

How do we correct it so that when we start the portal using ./PortalService start that it launches with the correct user?

Cause

 

Some of the files had the file owner and permissions changed on them for the Portal.

Environment

 

DevTest 10.X

Component : CA Service Virtualization

Resolution

Stop the Portal


Run the following command on the Lisa_Home folder


chmod -R 777 Lisa_Home
chown -R <user>:<user> Lisa_Home

Start the TDM Portal and it should now run as the correct user.
