Issue/Introduction

When a User resubmits the same job that they receive a permission denied response in the spool file. 

Environment

Release : 12.0

Component : Workload Automation System Agent

OS: Linux / Ubuntu

Cause

In new Ubuntu 20.01, the WA Agent spool directory has sticky bit set.  It allows only file owner and root user to modify the files in the directory.

Resolution

A workaround is to set the fs.protected_regular kernel parameter to 0.
