When exiting from uni-SPF, I see an error message - TBCLOSE SPFPROF Save_table failed. How can I prevent this?


This message means that uni-SPF was not able to write to the file SPFPROF.tbl in your $HOME directory. A common way this can happen is that you have previously 'su'd to root or another userid, then started uni-SPF. This will result in an SPFPROF.tbl file being created in your HOME directory with a different owner. When you are logged on as yourself, you are no longer able to write to this file. To correct the problem, remove the SPFPROF.tbl file before entering uni-SPF.

Occasionally, we see this problem when more than one person is logged on using the same userid. This is a dangerous practice, and is not supported within uni-SPF.
