RDBPROD: OpenVMS File Protections on Oracle Rdb Database Files
Last updated on MAY 03, 2016
Applies to:Oracle Rdb Server on OpenVMS - Version 7.2.4 and later
HP OpenVMS Alpha
HP OpenVMS Itanium
According to the Oracle Rdb Installation and Configuration Guide Release 7.2:
Section B.4 "OpenVMS Protection of Oracle Rdb Files"
Oracle Rdb sets the following OpenVMS default protection for all database files:
SYSTEM:READ,WRITE,EXECUTE,DELETE; OWNER:READ; GROUP: , WORLD:
This affects the following files:
- Database root (.RDB) and its associated ACL
- Recovery-unit journal (.RUJ)
- After-image journal (.AIJ)
- Snapshot (.SNP)
- Storage area (.RDA)
However, when a database is created, for example:
Current version of SQL is: Oracle Rdb SQL V7.2-410
$ SQL create database filename foo;
the OpenVMS protection settings are not as expected.
Total of 2 files.
OWNER is set to READ, WRITE rather than just READ. Is this a documentation error, a bug or a system set-up problem?
