ERROR: NMO not setuid-root (Unix-only)

Possible Cause : root.sh not run after the EM 10G installation.
Fix:
Check the permissions and ownership of the nmo and nmb executable in the $
AGENT_OH/bin, where the management agent has been installed:

$ ls -al nmo
$ ls -al nmb

These should be of the form :

-rwsr-s--- 1 root dba 22465 Apr 13 17:53 nmo
-rwsr-s--- 1 root dba 18055 Apr 13 17:53 nmb
