Error: Cannot open TIGER template file

Error Message

The TIGERTOOL command returns the following error message:

Cannot open TIGER template file
Bailing out of TIGERARC

Bailing out of TIGERTOOL ...
Problem encountered in (RUN_TIGERARC)
Processing incomplete
FATAL ERROR

Cause

Permissions on the INFO directory located in /arcexe81/template/headers are:

drwxr_xr_

The permissions should read:

drwxr_xr_x

This prevents the user in the 'world' group from executing the instructions in the header folder.

Solution or Workaround

The owner of the installation should change the permissions on the content of the /arcexe81/template/headers directory using the CHMOD command.

chmod -R 755
