[farmshare-discuss] DBMSCOPY functioning problem

hi, I'm having a general problem with DBMSCOPY.

the server has a DBMSCOPY application which is used to convert  file types of datasets - I logged in and launch it and it was successful. However the application can not properly function: it can be launched but can not properly read the dataset file, so I am guessing it has something to do with the permission of my account. my SUNet ID is weiqi, my home folder on the server is /afs/

my supervisor use my mac to log into his account and did exactly the same thing but he can read his datafile (in DBMSCOPY) in his home folder. Specifically, when I load his datafile with DBMSCOPY, the datafile can be viewed and converted; while my account can not even view the data (my datafile permission is set to be 777 already).

I never encounted such a problem that the application can be launched (meaning I have the permission) but can not function properly. Btw the datafile permission are set to be 777. I appreciate any help...

Looking forward to your reply, thanks a lot!


yours sincerely
