chown rtmsadmin:rtmadmin /opt/OC/rtms/conf/mib
chmod ugo-wx /opt/OC/rtms/conf/mib
o  The ability to upload zip archives can be restored by allowing write
permission to the mib folder again: chmod ug+wx /opt/OC/rtms/conf/mib All
zip archives should be manually unzipped and inspected on a desktop before
being uploaded on an RTMS server if this facility is needed.
