Permissions issue on folders/files under the siIndex folder in lisatmp_10.6.0

Some folders under lisatmp_10.6.0/siIndex/ had an owner of root instead of app caused the issue.


Some folders under lisatmp_10.6.0/siIndex/ had an owner of root where it should have been the owner app. The Linux admin changed all the folders and file under /logs/lisa/siIndex/ to have an owner of app. Then able to start Portal Service and log in from browser.
