You've got me. If you are root when you run the ruleset editor, then your
changes should be saved. If you are not root when you start the editor, it
should pop up a message saying that you don't have update authority to
Next time, cd to that directory in another open window while you run the editor
and do a File --> Save before you exit.
The rulesets owned by bin:bin are the ones we shipped -- all our executables are
originally owned by bin:bin. Once you change them, they should be owned by root.
Do you see this happening or not?
Also, the .BAK files are backup copies of the rulesets you edit. They are
created when you open a ruleset for editing in case you change your mind and
cancel all your changes. So if you ever want to go back to a previous version
even after you have saved a new one, it is still there in the .BAK file and you
can just rename it. When you open a ruleset for editing, in addition to the
.BAK copy being made or replaced, a temp copy called
<rulesetname>.<random_suffix> will b created. This will change as you add new
parts to your open ruleset and use "Save". When you exit using the pull-down,
the temp copy replaces the open copy, which is then deleted. If you keep a
window open while you edit, you should be able to see and verify that all of

Subject: [NV-L] RE: NV-L Digest - 05 Sep 2000
Thanks to Michael Seibold and James Shanks for the suggestions to my RESOLVE
and FORWARD issue from last week. I think I now know enough to try to
implement the ideas.
I'm now running into a problem where NONE of my ruleset editor changes seem
to be taking effect. I make my changes, save the ruleset and when I go back
into the same ruleset, they are lost!
I do some extra files created in /usr/OV/conf/rulesets such as: x.rs.BAK and
x.rsixMQab where "x" is the ruleset name I am trying to modify. They are
owned by root:bin. The other rulesets seem to be owned by bin:bin.
