The oracle generated logs (ie. alert and listener logs) are being created with 600 permissions. These files are of course created automatically by the oracle user. How would I change the permissions to automatically be 640, for instance, in a Solaris 10 environment? This would allow DBAs to read them and such without logging into the oracle user account.

  • What filesystem are you using ZFS/XFS/? You can do it with ACLs. Can probably also manage it with a chmod +s, and a correctly set umask when starting the RDBMS

  • Have you tried changing permissions on the folder where the log files are located? Set up inherited permissions.
