Description :When we install a Dollar Universe node on AIX with root user and using the uxrights command to asign the administration to another user (which name is at least nine characters long), then we are not able to start Dollar Universe with that user


Cause type:
Root Cause: The unistart script (throw the unigeneric) compare the whoami with the awk result below:
ls -l ${FULLSHAREDFILE} | awk '{print $3}' that is cut to 8 characters long
There is a mismatch though and the node cannot be started
