The /usr/spool/uucp/.Admin/errors file contains a record of uucico daemon errors that the uucp program cannot correct. For example, if the uucico daemon is unable to access a directory that is needed for a file transfer, the uucp program records this in the errors file. If debugging is enabled for the uucico daemon, the uucp program sends the error messages to standard output instead of to the errors file.
Following is the text of an error that might appear in the errors file: ASSERT ERROR (uucico) pid: 303 (7/18-8:25:09)\ SYSTAT OPEN FAIL /usr/spool/uucp/.Status/ (21)\ [SCCSID: @(#)systat.c 7.2 87/07/08 16:43:37,\ FILE: systat.c, LINE:100]
This error occurred on July 18 at 8:25:09 a.m. [(7/18-8:25:09)] when the uucico daemon, running as process 303 [(uucico) pid: 303], could not open the /usr/spool/uucp/.Status directory [SYSTAT OPEN FAIL /usr/spool/uucp/.Status/]. To prevent this error from occurring again, you should make sure the permissions for the .Status directory are correct. It should be owned by the uucp login ID and group uucp, with permissions of 777 (read, write, and execute for owner, group, and all others).
