In Oracle Financial Services Funds Transfer Pricing (FTP) or, when you run any FTP process, the process fails immediately.  No log file is created in $FIC_DB_HOME/log/FusionApps.  Additionally, other processes like Allocations and Cash Flow Edit processes run without error.

When you either check the nohup.out created when running the agentstartup.sh from $FIC_DB_HOME/bin or run the FTP process directly on the server (per <Document 1537000.1>), the following error exists:

sh: /app/ofsaa/ficdb/bin/ofsextsms: Permission denied
Unable to get database details from ofsextsms, so exiting
Get_File_Index : No such file or directory

The error appears to cause the FTP process to fail.
