Oracle Communications Messaging Server - Version 8.0.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


update config log should be owned by mailsrv userid

The first startup after installing a new version results in a /opt/sun/comms/messaging64/log/updateCfgVersion_*.log file.  This can be seen when running the start-msg command:

which is great, except:

root@host# ls -l /opt/sun/comms/messaging64/log/updateCfgVersio*
-rw------- 1 root root 71899 Dec 16 00:58 /opt/sun/comms/messaging64/log/updateCfgVersion_20161216005830.log
-rw------- 1 root root 74117 Feb 10 16:39 /opt/sun/comms/messaging64/log/updateCfgVersion_20170210163939.log
-rw------- 1 root root 72955 Feb 23 04:09 /opt/sun/comms/messaging64/log/updateCfgVersion_20170223040930.log

The above log files are owned by root with 0600 permissions.

Why aren't they be owned by the Messaging Server admin user, such as "mailsrv":

$ grep imsadmin restricted.cnf

or at least have the permissions set to 0644?
