LiveCycle ES: AccessDeniedException: Access Denied. The system is currently in read-only mode.


If you are using LiveCycle Content Services you may notice the following error message in the server logs when starting the server:

03:00:00,020 ERROR [org.quartz.core.JobRunShell] Job DEFAULT.indexBackupJobDetail threw an unhandled Exception: Access Denied.  The system is currently in read-only mode.


This error can occur when the user account that started the application server (JBoss/WebSphere/Weblogic) no longer has “write” permissions on the lccs_data shared directory used by content services (alfresco).

During startup sequence, Alfresco tries to create files in lccs_data shared directory, and if it cannot, it starts content services in read only mode.


Verify the user rights on the shared lccs_data directory, and try to create a folder/file manually.  Restarting the LiveCycle server will usually resolve the problem, but you should investigate the root cause why the user permissions are being lost in your environment.
