IC90163: INCORRECT PERMISSIONS ON DB2NODES.CFG FILE AFTER FAILOVER

Subscribe

You can track all active APARs for this component.

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Permissions on the db2nodes.cfg file should be r--r--r-- while
    the instance is up and rw-r--r-- while the instance is down.
    
    During a failover operation the permissions are changed to
    rw-r--r-- and aren't reverted back to r--r--r-- once the
    failover has completed processing. This APAR addresses this
    issue, the correct r--r--r-- permissions will be set on the
    db2nodes.cfg file after a failover has taken place.
    

Local fix

  • Manually revert the permissions on the file back to r--r--r--
    after a failover has taken place.
