RDP-PROXY [FATAL] Failed to create dir /var/privx/audit/: mkdir /var/privx/audit/: permission denied

Root Cause

PrivX audit folder (default /var/privx/audit) has incorrect permissions or the folder cannot be created due to incorrect parent folder permissions


Make sure the audit folder can be created and run following command to correct the permissions

# chmod 755 /var/privx/audit
# chown privx:privx /var/privx/audit
