After you install the Endpoint Operations Management agent, the owner is the user that installs the agent.

The installation directory and file permissions such as 600 and 700, are set to the owner when the user who installs the Endpoint Operations Management agent extracts the TAR file or installs the RPM.

Note:

When you extract the ZIP file, the permissions might not be correctly applied. Verify and ensure that the permissions are correct.

All the files that are created and written to by the agent are given 700 permissions with the owner being the user who runs the agent.
