Permission denied. admintools.conf.lock


I have downloaded Vertica 6.1.3 vm. When I try to start the admin tools it throws error as permission denied, /opt/vertica/config/admintools.conf.lock.

Don't know how to resolve this. Please help me.




  • check permissions for folder /opt/vertica/config:

    [email protected]:~$ ls -ld /opt/vertica/config/
    drwxrwxr-x 6 dbadmin verticadba 4096 Nov 8 20:33 /opt/vertica/config/
    If owner isn't dbadmin, so perform the following:
    $ sudo chown -R dbadmin:verticadba /opt/vertica/config
  • Thanks so much. Its worked.
  • is it possible that during upgrade Vertica change config folder permission to root?
