NMON Performance Monitor for Unix and Linux Systems: Why am I getting a "permission denied" error on each of my search heads?

Path Finder

We keep getting this error message from each one of our search heads, I fixed the permissions on each search head and am still getting errors. Any suggestions?

-rwxrwxrwx.  1 root root     2648 Sep 12 08:53 nmon_cleaner.sh

Hi,

This is strange, I'll check this ASAP.
The nmon_cleaner.sh is a shell wrapper to nmon_cleaner.pl/.py can you check the permission of these files too ?

This is surprising, in the package I am quite sure permissions are fine, wouldn't you have extracted files on Windows hosts ?

You're welcome.

I have no idea why you've lost execution permission on these files, I have checked in the package and permissions are correct.
Maybe the way you extracted or have transfer the content.

Any way, nice it is solved.
