SURUN jobs failing with "SURUN05 - Make sure process is owned by root"
Resolution:
Detailed Description and Symptoms

?Error message similar to the one below is seen in an SURUN jobs output file:

setuid root: Not owner
ERR11 09:39:02-Unable to change uid to root.
SURUN05 - Make sure process is owned by root.

Cause

This is caused by incorrect ownership of the c/SURUN file.


Solution

?The Applications Manager guide mentions the following files need to have ownership/permissions as follows:

****************************
mv c/surun c/SURUN
chown root c/SURUN
chmod 4711 c/SURUN
chown root exec/authoriz.lis
chmod 755 exec/authoriz.lis
****************************

In an error of this nature make sure that the c/SURUN file is correctly owned by the 'root' user.
