Hello Experts

I am not able to touch a file for a user Oracle on AIX. The filesystem has full write access for that user and is owned by that user

oracle@csc06ora03$ touch x
touch: x cannot create

Thanks

Please post the output of

id

pwd


ls -ld ../*
ls -ld ../../*

I suspect that one the the directories above the directory you're in doesn't have correct permissions.

here is the output

oracle@csc06ora03 $ id
uid=133(oracle) gid=203(dba) groups=1(staff)
[/apps/oracle]

oracle@csc06ora03 $ pwd
/apps/oracle
[/apps/oracle]

oracle@csc06ora03 $ ls -ld ../*
../*: No permission
[/apps/oracle]

oracle@csc06ora03 $ ls -ld ../../*
../../*: No permission



Here are the permissions on apps and oracle

drwxr-xr-x   11 root     system         4096 Feb 23 16:53 apps
drwxr-xr-x    7 oracle   dba            4096 Mar  8 13:46 oracle

Which is your AIX version?

The error message format seems rather strange to me.

Do you manipulate the messages  - or is it not AIX?

How did you get the last two lines of output? As user Oracle?

What do you get with "mount"?
