Error description

  • When installing WebSphere Portal through RAF, the install fails
    as the Portal Media chmod's the install root to 550 and 555 as
    part of the install process. The chmod operation (which is part
    of the portal media scripts), results in only allowing root to
    perform the operation. Any other user is blocked when
    attempting to run the install.
    
    Workaround:
    Only option is to manually update the Portal media to block the
    chmod of 555 and 550 durring the process. Also, it appears
    furture Fixpacks in Portal 8.0 resolved the issue.
