  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When Liberty is updated from a previous version on z/OS
    using a group-mode Installation Manager, files are updated
    without the group-write bit being set. This can lead to
    failures if another user ID in the group invokes the
    Installation Manager to update the copy of Liberty later on.

    When Liberty is updated from a previous version on z/OS using a
    group-mode Installation Manager, files are updated without the
    group-write bit being set. This can lead to failures if another
    user ID in the group invokes the Installation Manager to update
    the copy of Liberty later on.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The group-write bits will be set when updating Liberty using
    group-mode Installation Manager.
