File /var/opt/wbem/cimserver_current.conf cannot be read

On many HP-SIM managed hosts I got the following message when I try to start the cim_server:
PGS10033: The CIM Server is not started: PGS00211: File /var/opt/wbem/cimserver_current
.conf cannot be read.

After I set rights to 644 the cim_server can be started.

Do you know guys why is this happening?

Thank you,
Mugur

See http://docs.hp.com/en/B8465-90038/ch01s08.html

"In version A.02.07, the system umask settings can impact the start-up behavior of the CIMserver. When it starts, the CIMserver renames the cimserver_current.conf file as cimserver_current.conf.bak file, and then copies the contents of cimserver_planned.conf file into the cimserver_current.conf file. This is done by creating the cimserver_current.conf file. The file permissions of the cimserver_current.conf file depend on the umask settings. If the umask settings is set to 077 or higher, then the cimserver_current.conf is created with following permissions:

-rw------- 1 root root 1099 Apr 14 16:55 cimserver_current.conf

With WBEM A.02.07 version, the cimservermain process which runs as a normal cimsrvr user fails to read this cimserver_current.conf file. As a result, the CIMserver fails to start and the following error message is displayed:

PGS10033: THE CIM SERVER IS NOT STARTED: PGS00211:FILE

/var/opt/wbem/cimserver_current.conf CANNOT BE READ"

Thank you, David.

I saw in the page you sent me that this was a "fixed deffect" in WBEM Services version A.02.07.02.

From my host I got:
# swlist -l product | grep -i wbem
...
WBEMServices A.02.07 WBEM Services CORE Product
...

Is version A.02.07.02 different than A.02.07?

From my host:
# /sbin/init.d/cim_server start
PGS10033: The CIM Server is not started: PGS00211: File /var/opt/wbem/cimserver_current.conf cannot be read.
# ll /var/opt/wbem/
...
-rw-r----- 1 root root 1099 Aug 6 10:04 cimserver_current.conf
-rw-r--r-- 1 bin bin 1099 Jul 12 2006 cimserver_planned.conf

/var/opt/wbem# chmod 644 cimserver_current.conf

/var/opt/wbem# /sbin/init.d/cim_server start
CIM cimserver is running

I tried to download WBEM Services A.02.07.02 but all I could get was A.02.07 from March 2008.
