Question: What permissions are required to be granted for LoadGenerator on Unix?
Answer: In order to install Performance Center's LoadGenerator on Unix, some preparations should be done prior to install:
- The Unix user that used for LG host should have 755 permissions on the installation folder.
- The following Unix command should be issued to make sure the user owns installation folder:
chown -R <username>:<group> <LG-install-folder>
- Another Unix command establishes read/write/exec permissions to the user who owns the installation folder:
chmod -R 755 <LG-install-folder>
- Upon completion of the above commands, login as the user used for LG host and try creating a file to verify whether the user can write to the folder with the following command:
touch test.txtThe test.txt file should be created.
At this point, the system is ready for LoadGenerator install.
