Issue:
AWA's Unix agent changes the client-folders inside the Resources folder from 774 or 775 to 777 (world writeable).

Example:

Before Unix agent runs a job:
[automic@server resources]$ pwd
/automic/Agents/unix/resources/0001
[automic@server resources]$ ls -lsh
total 1.5K
1.5K drwxr-xr-x 2 automic automic gp 2 Sep 9 05:00 0001

After Unix agent runs a job:
[automic@server resources]$ pwd
/automic/Agents/unix/resources/0001
[automic@server resources]$ ls -lsh
total 1.5K
1.5K drwxrwxrwx 2 automic automic gp 2 Sep 13 07:00 0001
Cause:
This behavior is by design where the permissions is being changed on the client-folders (i.e. 0001 folder) located inside the Resource folder.
Resolution:
The Unix agent cannot determine at Runtime, which user will access the data stored in the Resources directory. Therefore, the per-client-subdirectories must be accessible for everyone.
