    Based on the error, it looks like the service account does not have write access to FRS . Where is your FRS located?

    Your screenshots are from XI R2 or even XIR1 version of the product, which is way too old.
    I'm not even sure it supposed to work on Solaris 10.
    How do you still have a working license for it ?


    Have you tried searching knowledge base ?

    Basically account under which FRS is running does have required permissions. Your UNIX admin need to fix this.

    FRS is located in NFS Shared file location on solaris box.frs-location.png.

    Can you tell me how to check service account permissions.

    • You need to work with your unix admin to address this. Quite simply, the user account that is running the BO services needs to have r/w permission to those directories.
