Patch level detected:Dollar Universe 6.4.41
Product Version: Dollar.Universe 6.4.41

Description :While doing the online reorganization ( by default around 00:01), the dollar universe node stops by itself.


Cause type:
By design
Root Cause: Starting on Dollar Universe version 6.4.41, the node will stop in case one of the files with extension dta or idx cannot be created / modified by the user launching the uxioserv process.On this case, the issue was due to a wrong manipulation executed as the root user instead of the dollar universe administrator user.
#CMD# ls -ltrai /var/universe/WBPROD/data/expAs you can see, the file u_fmpi60.idx could only be modified by root, and the uxioserv was running as wbuniva.


OS: All Unix


In order to fix the issue, simply launch the command uxrights to restore the correct permissions / owner on all the dollar universe files.
For that, please apply the following procedure ( the node should be stopped while doing so):

1. Login as root
2. Load the dollar universe environment:
. ./unienv.ksh
3. Launch the following command with the node stopped (replace wbuniva by the correct user administrator of the node):
$UNI_DIR_EXEC/uxrights -m assign -a wbuniva

4. Connect as the administrator of the node ( replace wbuniva by the correct user administrator of the node):
su - wbuniva

5. Load the dollar universe environment:
. ./unienv.ksh

6. Launch an offline reorganization:

7. Start the node:
