    Unanswered: Invalid access permission detected for directory

    While installing db2 v8.1 ese on aix5.2, Though, we have given all the necessary permission for /u02/db2inst1 folder.. we are getting the following error.

    DBI1088E Invalid access permission detected for directory
    /u02/db2inst1.

    Explanation:

    There may be several reasons for this error. It is likely that
    one of the following situations has occurred:

    o Either the given name is not a directory, or it does not have
    read and execute permission.

    o The given directory can be created but cannot be accessed.
    It could be that the permissions on any of its parent
    directories in its path have been set incorrectly.



    User Response:

    Check permissions for the given directory and restart the install
    process. Suggested directory permissions are u=rwx,go=rx.


    Thanks.

    Possible cause: /u02 or / do not have execute permission.

    Possible cause: /u02 or / do not have execute permission.

    chmod a+x / /u02
    chmod a+rx /u02/db2inst1
    chmod u+w /u02/db2inst1

    Maybe the disk is mounted in read-only mode?
    In that case, try to remount it with "-o rw".

    To verify this check if you can create a file manually:
    > /u02/db2inst1/file

    Or

    Try the 'chmod 0777 yourdirectory' to se if there are no
    special file permissions/blocks on your file system

    Remeber to set it to 0750 after you are done

    thanks for all the suggestions.. I had already tried them all. But it rather seems to be an issue with the filesystem. Hence we are planning to reconfigure the same.
