I think it is an issue with the umask setting of the session that launched the listener. We saw it in a sun clustered EBiz environment when the start of the listener was put under cluster control. To resolve it we added a call to source the environment config file, similar to what was in the database owner's .profile, to the cluster configuration and that resolved it for us Received on Wed Aug 17 2011 - 09:33:31 CDT
