This article applies to BoKS Manager 6.7.0 and 6.7.1.


The program $BOKS_bin/ssh-agent has different mode and group settings than the system's program ssh-agent. In particular on some Linux platforms it now has an empty group and the set-gid bit set.

Resolution / Workaround

To resolve these issues, apply hotfix HFBM-0182, available for download from the HelpSystems Community Portal.

When installing this hotfix, a script is run which attempts to copy the group and mode from the system's ssh-agent to $BOKS_bin/ssh-agent, or at least set an empty group (nobody or ssh) and the set-gid bit.
