Setting the dtuser file permissions

You need to use the vae.setuser command to ensure that the file permissions and ownerships are correct. You need to run this whether you are using the dtuser account provided by the Blueworx Voice Response installation process or you have set up your own AIX account.

Attention: $VAE must either not be set or be set to /usr/lpp/dirTalk at this point.

To do this:

  1. Log on to AIX as root, if you are not logged on already.
  2. Type the following command and press Enter:
    You can ignore any messages about DB2. These might be generated if you have not yet created the Blueworx Voice Response database.
  3. The following prompt is displayed: Enter user ID for running Blueworx Voice Response (must begin with an alpha character):.

    Enter dtuser (unless you have set up an AIX account with a different name).

  4. The prompt Process All filesystems? ([y]/n/?) : is displayed.

    Enter y to set ownership and permissions across all relevant mounted filesystems (this is the default).

    Enter n to restrict ownership and permissions to the current path. With this option, you have to manually set permissions for other filesystems if you subsequently want to include them. The n option is likely to be used in configurations where a large number of voice segments, voice messages, or audio names or greetings are mounted on a separate filesystem, but already have the correct ownership and permissions. In this situation, entering y could cause vae.setuser to execute very slowly, possibly taking hours to complete.
