Description:

Cause type:
Configuration
Root Cause: The reason for this issue is that the User starting the IO server does not have proper access right to import other users' cron jobs.
Resolution:
To import cron jobs, Dollar Universe IO server must be run by root or a user with administrator rights (installation by an administrator is not enough).
f the IO server is not run by an administrator, the Crontab can't be imported.

For Dollar Universe 6, the following procedure can be applied to do so, launched as root:


$UNI_DIR_EXEC/unistop
$UNI_DIR_EXEC/uxrights -m assign -a root
$UNI_DIR_EXEC/unistart


Fix Status: No Fix
