Getting error "/.install4j: cannot create" when trying to start service
Posted by Van Glass on 13 May 2008 06:54 PM
If you are starting the JSCAPE MFT Server administrative service as a user other than root you may get this error. This error occurs when the startup script tries to write a file to the system root directory "/" named .install4j as a user that does not have sufficient permissions to create or modify this file. To resolve this issue perform the following.

1. Create a file named .install4j in the system root directory "/" using following command:

touch .install4j

2. Change permissions for .install4j so that the user who is running the JSCAPE MFT Server administrative service can write to this file using following command:

chown username .install4j
chmod 644 .install4j

3. Restart JSCAPE MFT Server administrative service.
