wxadmin tool commission gives "ERROR: Permission Denied"

by markc » Wed Sep 24, 2014 4:12 pm

I was trying to commission a system as the wxadmin user by running the wxadmin tool, and got a Permission Denied error - what has gone wrong:

...
THIS WILL ERASE ALL EXISTING DATABASE DATA
About to erase database data and reset to defaults.
Enter to continue or ctrl-c to abort.
:
Operation requires the newsys permission.
ERROR: Permission Denied
Complete. Hit enter to continue.

As covered in the documentation, the wxadmin user is intended for day-to-day maintenance tasks.

These do not cover commissioning a system, which involves wiping the database. So to do that you need to use the wxroot user, which is reserved for less frequently used operations of this nature which should only be possible for the minimal set of users.
