/bin/sh: /etc/rc.d/init.d/jive-messengerd: Permission denied


I made the mistake of rebooting our very stable Redhat system, to upgrade to the 2.6.12 kernel. Upon reboot, I can’‘t get Jive Messenger to start. I get /bin/sh: /etc/rc.d/init.d/jive-messengerd: Permission denied from the init tab and Starting messenger nohup: appending output to `nohup.out’’

I saw a previous message regarding the later message but I’‘m not sure if that is, or is not right. We’'re running Jive Messenger 2.1.5. I also tried to chmod +x /opt/jivesoftware/bin/messenger to no avail.

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

It may be the actual binary called by the bin/messenger script. Check perms throughout that directory, to make sure you’'re allowed to execute the java binary.

Awesome. It works!!!


Why don’'t award adamico some points for having the correct answer? Thanks

How can I give him the most amount of points?

You can’‘t now. Correct Answers get 10 points, and Helpful Answers get 5 points. Once you label a post as “Helpful,” you can’'t change it to Correct. But 5 points is better than none.

Aww, how sweet! Thanks peeps!
