Oracle 8.1.6  Sun Solaris.
When UTL_FILE supplied packages creates a file its permissions are "rwxr-xr-x"
How can I change this default to "rwxrwxrwx" ?

Hi,

This can be changed by resetting the oracle instance owner (presumably the oracle account)  umask.   Since the unix account of the oracle instance is the owner of the server process, these will be passed on to the process.  .
Set the umask to 777  for the"rwxrwxrwx" premissions  before starting the instance and then it should work.

sincerely,

Wouldn't this have any effect on the Oracle instance in any known way?

Hi,

No,   it won't effect the way the instance runs.   remember, umask utility is only used to set the file mode creation  mask (permissions).
So, in this case, any new files created by  the oracle OS account, ie:such as trc files , dumps files,  new file generated by the UTL_FILE, etc)..     In fact, this is Oracle's recommended solution to that problem.

Sincerely

chmod 777 *
