After you upgrade a vCloud Connector node to 2.6, change the permissions on the node staging directory. The staging directory must have read, write, and execute permissions for user, group, and other (777).

During upgrade, these permissions are incorrectly set to 775, which removes write access to the staging directory for admin users. Copy tasks will fail if you do not set the permissions back to 777 on all upgraded nodes.


Log into the node console as root.


Type the following command to set the correct permissions.

chmod 777 /opt/vmware/hcagent/staging
