/etc/group file permission problem

We use Intersystems Cache Database with background jobs (non interactive). When these jobs start the process does not acquire the proper permissions assigned in the /etc/group file. Has anyone come across an issue where non interactive processes do not acquire the group access permissions running as a non interactive process?

What OS version? What does id(1) show?
If you aren't on 11.11, you wouldn't get secondary groups activated without linking /etc/logingroup.

OS 11.23. I'll check id(1).

Shalom,

Check the directory permissions for where the jobs show up. There could be an issue with inherited permissions.

Re: /etc/group file permission problem

Problem solved. Thanks for your responses. The permissions were being inherited from the parent process, not from the /etc/group or local directory permissions.

Permissions inherited from the parent process.
