about the permission of the files relate to "webserveragent".


Hi,This is Ryotaro

I want to know about the permission of the files relate to "webserveragent".
I want to delete write permissions from other-user because of Customer requirement.

There are seven files subject to permission change.

1. -rw-rw-rw- 1 dyna dyna 281 9月 16 2016 dthostagent.ini
2. -rw-rw-rw- 1 dyna dyna 6765 3月 12 18:49 dtwsagent.ini
3. -rw-rw-rw- 1 dyna dyna 6744 9月 16 2016
4. -rw-rw-rw- 1 dyna dyna 4214416 4月 4 18:59 dynaTraceWebServerSharedMemory

5. -rw-rw-rw- 1 root root 2103680 3月 12 19:04
6. -rw-rw-rw- 1 root root 2286088 3月 12 19:05
7. -rw-rw-rw- 1 dyna dyna 1877192 3月 12 19:16

Could I delete write permissions from other-user for these 7 files?
(I mean, Is it No problem to work dynaTrace?)

Best regards

You can find more info in the documentation.

Hope this helps,
