adm: [ID 70291 daemon.error]

Hi all I have been having this error in dmesg for quite some time and I'm not sure what's the errors associate with it. The closest I can get is the error in the fd2log,

mv: cannot rename pacct.0 to SPacct.0.xxxx: Permission denied

I initially solved the problem by setting the folder group writable, but I'll receive the error that the folder is group writable, so in one way or another, I keep receiving different errors.

Pls kindly advise on these!!!!!

Need you give the O/P:

ls -ld /var/adm
ls -l pacct.0

On my Solaris system the 'adm' user performs actions on the accounting information. In order to rotate the logs, the 'adm' user needs to have write access to the /var/adm directory.

 # ls -ald /var/adm
drwxrwxr-x  10 root     sys           54 Jul 28 13:00 /var/adm

# id -a adm
uid=4(adm) gid=4(adm) groups=3(sys),7(tty),8(lp)

Your /var/adm directory is 755. Is your 'adm' user part of the 'sys' group? If so, the permissions on this directory are wrong and need to be 775

Which OS are you running?

Agree, check the folder /var/adm date, Looks someone update it yesterday on Jul 27 11:54

you can run below command to confirm user adm's group:

id -a adm

If adm is in group sys, then run the command to fix the issue:

chmod 775 /var/adm

thanks for the replies!!!!

adm is is sys group. I have ran the command before to fix the issue, but after that it'll keep generating the message "/var/adm directory is group writable" or something like that so one way or another i'll see some error. I have other servers with the same configuration but they are not giving me any problem that's why i'm really puzzled by it.
