Basic Authentication on UNIX
On UNIX, basic authentication through the operating system requires special file permissions set on the sagssxauthd2 daemon program. Make sure the sagssxauthd2 daemon program installed in the Software AG_directory /common/security/ssx/auth directory is set with these special file permissions:
*Root is the owner of the file.
*The set-uid flag is set for the owner.
If any of the above mentioned file permissions is not met, to enable operating system authentication from the root, execute the following command:

Software AG_directory/common/security/ssx/auth/set_daemon_privs.sh
When the first authentication request on the operating system occurs, Broker Server automatically creates a daemon process called sagssxauthd2 with root as its owner. This daemon stops when you stop Broker Server.
