CA MSM Application Server Fails at Startup

I cannot start the CA MSM application server. I see the following messages in the log:

 MMS0001E - Insufficient privileges: server requires FACILITY:BPX.SERVER(READ).
JOB47638  BPXP015I HFS PROGRAM /bin/sh IS NOT MARKED PROGRAM CONTROLLED.

Reason:

The check for privileges that are required for the CA MSM application server to run has failed.

Solution:

1. Verify whether a sticky bit is on for /bin/sh:

ls -l /bin/sh

If the sticky bit is on, you get the result similar to the following output, where the letter t represents the sticky bit:

-rwxr-xr-t  --s-  2 USER01  GROUP  1712128 May  2  2015 /bin/sh

If t is missing, set the sticky bit for /bin/sh:

chmod +t /bin/sh

2. If /bin/sh is executed from a file system that is mounted with the NOSETUID attribute (that is, considered untrusted), remount the file system with the SETUID attribute.
