The z/OS® UNIX APF bit is set during SMP/E install where needed. This permission bit might get lost if you did not preserve it during a manual copy of the z/OS Explorer Extensions directories.
UNIX command ls -E to list the extended
attributes, in which the APF bit is marked with the letter
a, as shown in the
following example ($ is the z/OS
$ cd /usr/lpp/IBM/zee $ ls -E bin/felfvlic -rwxr-xr-x a-s- 2 user group 118784 Jul 8 12:31 bin/felfvlic
Use z/OS UNIX command extattr +a to set the APF bit manually, as shown in the following sample ($ and # are the z/OS UNIX prompts):
$ cd /usr/lpp/IBM/zee $ su # extattr +a bin/felfvlic # exit $ ls -E bin/felfvlic -rwxr-xr-x a-s- 2 user group 118784 Jul 8 12:31 bin/felfvlic
