Oracle umask tips

Oracle Tips by Burleson 

Change default file permissions with umask

As we noted in Chapter 1, the umask and chmod commands are often used by the Oracle DBA to allow other UNIX users the ability to read and execute Oracle files.

For example, if we want to create a file with read-write permission for the Oracle user and ready-only permissions for everybody else, we can set the umask to 022:

root> umask 022
root> umask

root> touch dumpfile.trc

root> ls -al dumpfile.trc

-rw-r--r-- 1 oracle dba 0 Aug 13 09:36 dumpfile.trc
