[SOLVED] Cannot write process to RapidAnalytics server from RapidMiner client

Hello everyone,

I have used RM for a while now, but have recently added a RapidAnalytics on a server.  I connect with RM  just fine, and browse the remote repository items.

However, I don't seem to be able to add new processes or folders to my 'home' folder on the server. I can't do even if I use the web interface directly with the same account. In both I see messages similar to

"WRITE access to /home/brandop not granted for user brandop".

I have been careful to use the admin account via the web interface to set full (read, write & exec) permissions on this folder for the relevant user name.

I can actually look at the underlying MySQL tables used by RA (ra_ent_permission and others), and verify that the folder in question does appear to have permissions granted (or at least recored) for the relevant user id.

I have updated to the latest version of RapidMiner with no difference.

Does anyone have any ideas on how I can fix this?

    Apologies, I think I have found the answer.

    I needed to explicitly set permissions on the file structure above the user's home directory. I did this by adding full rights not only for the specific user but also for the entire 'users' group as well.

    Thanks for looking.
