Permissions for Configuration Files

Configuration files are nonencrypted ASCII text files.

By default, configuration files are created with read and write permissions set for the file owner, and read permission set for all other users. If you created the configuration file at the operating system level, you are the file owner; if you created the configuration file from SAP ASE, using the write or restore parameter, the file owner is the user who started SAP ASE. Usually, this is the user “sybase.” To restrict access to configuration files, use your operating system’s file permission command to set read, write, and execute permissions as appropriate.

Note: You must set permissions accordingly on each configuration file created.
