Product Version: Dollar.Universe 6.3.01

Description :After a cluster switching on the second member the starting up of Dollar Universe fails systematically.

The cluster resource disk is available.
Environment:
OS: All Unix
Related configuration item(s): But this kind of issue can happen on any DUAS 6 environment on a Linux/Unix Cluster
Cause:
Cause type:
Configuration
Root Cause: During the installation DUAS was installed with root as admin user. User root is owner of all files. If the supposed DUAS admin user tries a startup, he will not be able to access mandatory files, and DUAS will not start.
Resolution:
Connect as root to the DUAS Host as root, check that DUAS is stopped actually.

load the environment
. ./unienv.ksh
and run
./uxrights -m assign -a

This command will change the permissions on the Dollar Universe files by setting your user as owner.
This will fix the issue

Fix Status: No Fix
