[Errno 13] Permission denied: '/opt/vertica/config/admintool

Post by Brett » Thu May 01, 2014 12:10 pm


I installed Vertica on a CentOS box. When I try to launch admintools as the dbadmin user, I get a permission denied error:

Code: Select all

[dbadmin@vertica-new ~]$ admintools
A system-related error has occurred.  For more information
see the error number returned below. Exiting.
[Errno 13] Permission denied: '/opt/vertica/config/admintools.conf.lock'
Here are the file permissions:

Code: Select all

[dbadmin@vertica-new ~]$ ls -lrt /opt/vertica/config/admintools.conf
-rw-rw-r--. 1 dbadmin verticadba 467 Apr 30 14:00 /opt/vertica/config/admintools.conf
Anyone have a clue what the issue might be?

Brett - the error is associated with /opt/vertica/config/admintools.conf.lock not admintools.conf.

Change the owner of config directory.

[root@NODE2 ~]$ sudo chown -R dbadmin:verticadba /opt/vertica/config

Then try to start admintools
