Question/Problem Description
Unable to open DBname.LIC name, errno = 13. (1295)
Clarifying Information
Error Message
Defect/Enhancement Number
The error can occur for two reasons:1) The Progress database files (including the DBname.LIC file) presently reside on an NFS mounted filesystem. Thus, after the database is initially started the permission to write to the DBname.LIC file is blocked. - or -2) The Progress database broker executable (_mprosrv) does not have it's SUID bit set.
1) Store/Run the Progress database files from a non-NFS mounted filesystem. - or -2) On non-NFS mounted filesystems, be sure the SUID bit is set on the Progress database broker executable (_mrposrv). Example: -rwsrwxr-x 1 root rdl 1693006 Jun 6 2001 _mprosrv
