Sufficient privileges for FTSV/FTSO?

» close window

The Question is:

What privileges are required to run FTSV v2.3?
On some nodes, from a minimally-privileged account (TMPMBX,NETMBX) any use of
 the SPOOL command results in the error message
"%FTSV-F-INSUFPRIV, insufficient privilege to run FTSV". FTSV is apparently
 implemented correctly, and the startup works OK at boot-time, with the
 required files installed as privileged images.
FTSV works OK on other nodes where installation & account privilege is
 identical and I am at a loss as to how to track down what is causing this. I
 cannot increase the privileges of the account concerned (and as FTSV is OK
 elsewhere I should not need to).

The Answer is :

  Please ensure that FTSV has been started, and please use security
  auditing to determine the particular failure being encountered.
