Re: IFS File Authority



fixed

Rob,

Thanks for the info. As it turns out this is exactly what was wrong. We did
a hardware upgrade a couple of weeks ago and the issue we were having the
files in /tmp started right after the upgrade. The "Restricted rename and
unlink" box was checked for the /tmp folder. I had our program manager
uncheck the box and everything seems to be back to normal.

Thanks again.

Check also the 'attributes' of the folder. "Restricted rename and

If USERA creates a file in a directory with this attribute enabled then
even QSECOFR can't get rid of it.
It was something popular with Linux and is the worlds crappiest
implementation of mimicing QTEMP in a stream file environment. Several
releases ago IBM tried setting this attribute on in /tmp. Which broke a
lot of email programs (including IBM's). People would set this off and
the next OS upgrade would turn it back on again. After several attempts
at gelding them with a pair of steel toes they stopped doing this.
But it is something to watch for.
