The scenario is that we have a Websphere server, for example, with 70 application JVM instances. We have a single install of the probe and apply a custom Introscope service and JVM parameters in the Websphere console on each application so that the Agent is named automatically. However, they all use the same Agent.jar and profile. The applications all run as different user accounts. So if a particular application writes to the hotdeploy directory, then another application is not the file owner and so does not have the permissions.
How should the permissions be set on the hotdeploy directory? Should I use 777? Can all applications running as different users all utilize the same folders/files in hotdeploy and extensions? Our security and UNIX admins frown on using 777.
