Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Following ASAP Installation issue is faced by customer:

As part of OS hardening activity, the security team is insisting to change the permission to directories as 755, which means that ASAP does not have writable permission to /tmp and /var/tmp directories. As per ASAP 7.2 Installation Guide, users must have writable permission to these directories.

We are asking if we can change the location of the these directories to some other writable directories. If yes, please provide us the steps where changes needs to be done.

OS version: SUNOS release 5.11 version 11.1 64 bit
ASAP version: 7.2

The following are the  results of testing done, after changing the permission of aforesaid directories to 755 in our ASAP test system.

After changing the permission, Application was not starting. Below are the error logs.

asap_home/asapNFTA/ASAPNFTA_HOME/scripts/status[135]: /tmp/status11087: cannot create [Permission denied]
cat: cannot open /tmp/status11087: No such file or directory
/asap_home/asapNFTA/ASAPNFTA_HOME/scripts/status[135]: /tmp/status11096: cannot create [Permission denied]
cat: cannot open /tmp/status11096: No such file or directory
