Why does the Controller startup fail with the error message "Permission denied"?


Controller startup fails with the following error message:


[#|2017-11-16T03:47:51.492-0600|SEVERE|glassfish3.1.2||_ThreadID=1;_ThreadName=main;|Shutting down v3 due to startup exception : Permission denied:|#]


This issue occurs when Controller services are started using a non-root user who doesn't have the access permissions to privileged ports (0-1024).


This is a security feature, to prevent normal user programs from squatting on well-known service ports, called privileged ports.



Start the Controller services using the root user if using the ports 0-1024 for the Controller.
