Tech Tip: CA CSM Application Server Fails at Startup

  • 1.  Tech Tip: CA CSM Application Server Fails at Startup

    Posted 08-01-2017 03:11 PM

    Problem:

    I cannot start up the CA CSM application server. I see the following messages in the log: I cannot start up the CA CSM application server. I see the following messages in the log:

    MMS0001E - Insufficient privileges: server requires FACILITY:BPX.SERVER(READ).
    13.54.54 JOB47638 BPXP015I HFS PROGRAM /bin/sh IS NOT MARKED PROGRAM CONTROLLED.

     

    Cause: 

    The check for privileges that are needed for the CA CSM application server to run has failed.

    Solution:

    1. Verify whether a sticky bit is on for /bin/sh:

    ls -l /bin/sh

    If the sticky bit is on, you get the result similar to the following output, where the letter t represents the sticky bit:

    -rwxr-xr-t  --s-  2 USER01  GROUP  1712128 May  2  2014 /bin/sh

    If t is missing, set the sticky bit for /bin/sh:

    chmod +t /bin/sh

    1. If /bin/sh is executed from a file system that is mounted with the NOSETUID attribute (that is, considered untrusted), remount the file system with the SETUID attribute.
