The following error typically occurs when an agent on a Solaris or Linux system is not returning data or can not cannot be added to up.timeUptime Infrastructure Monitor:
uptime agent daemon.error: Permission denied
However, the inted.conf file shows that the uptmagnt is to be run as the uptime user:
# grep uptmagnt /etc/inetd.conf # *** Installed by the up.time pkgadd command (uptmagnt) uptmagnt stream tcp nowait uptime /opt/uptime-agent/bin/uptmagnt
By changing the inetd.conf line to run the uptmagnt as nobody instead of uptime and then restarting inetd, the agent should start responding normally.
