Permissions on /dev/shm are Reverting Back to 755 on Boot.

(Doc ID 2296945.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 17, 2017

Applies to:

Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 7.3 with Unbreakable Enterprise Kerne [4.1.12] and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The /etc/fstab file has been configured to mount /dev/shm on boot but on reboot the filesystem continues to be mounted with 755 permissions.

Adding the, "mode," option does not make a difference.


 Recently updated the OS from 7.x to 7.3
