Unable to start the Crystal Report Services.

  • The services status displays failed from CMC (Central Management Console) Servers list.

  • If you try to restart again the service, the same message appears.


  1. Check the current permissions by issuing the following command from the /bin directory:

    ls -lart nohup

    The command results will show a sticky bit (sr) in the permissions, which causes the Crystal Report Services to fail. For example:

    -r-sr-xr-x 66 root sys 10052 Jul 6 2011 nohup

  2. To correct this, remove the sticky bit from the permissions. The result should appear as the example below:

    -r-xr-xr-x 66 root sys 10052 Jul 6 2011 nohup
