Linux or UNIX users can run the EIF installer either as root or as non-root. However, if running as a non-root user the install will fail because the non-root user does not have permission to create /etc/TME.

A non-root UserID may not have permission to create the /etc/TME directory
Resolving the problem
If a non-root User is used to perform the install, the /etc/TME directory should be created by the root User prior to installation.
