Aphelion web tools login issues?

Aphelion web tools login issues?

When I finished installing Windchill PDMLink, I have set the LDAP user cn=Manager/manager, but when I'm going to login into the aphelion web tools page, I type "cn=Manager" as username and "manager" as password, but it always says "Access denied".

The original post related to a Windows server but I had the same issue with an AIX installation.  Below is the solution for AIX.

We fixed this eventually in our AIX environment.  After all the recommended configuration tasks were done with no joy (ACCESS DENIED at logon to the Aphelion Web Tools page).  It turned out to be that the following was required.

Find the file aphelionMenu in the cgi folder and run the following commands

chown root aphelionMenu (this sets the ownership to the master admin id - in this case root)

chmod 4551 aphelionMenu (this applies the setuid action to the file)

Note that the group should not matter.

You can validate that via ls -l in cgi folder and should look like this (note the 's')

-r-sr-x--x    1 root     1281         298560 Jun 23 2011  aphelionMenu
