1872078 - Installation fails with a "Permission denied" error trying to write the .krg and .cfg files - ASE

Symptom

  • Using a resource file to install Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE) 15.7 ESD#4.2
  • The installation should be writing and accessing the .krg (shared memory file) and .cfg (configuration file) in the $SYBASE/$SYBASE_ASE directory, but seems to be using the $SYBASE directory instead
  • Install fails with the following messages:
kernel Performing space allocation for device '/prd/det/dbs/data/master/master.dat' (0.10 Gb). This may take some time.
kernel Finished initialization.
kernel Using config area from primary master device.
kernel Warning: Using default file '/pkgs/linux/intel/sybase/15.7_ESD4.2.x86_64/MyNewServer.cfg' since a configuration file was not specified. Specify a configuration file name in the RUNSERVER file to avoid this message.
