Permission Denied, but I think I should have rights


I am trying to change directories to a directory I think I have rights to, but getting Permission Denied:

oracle@srv4:[/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0.3/db_1/network] #id
uid=500(oracle) gid=501(oinstall) groups=501(oinstall),502(dba),506(asmdba)

oracle@srv4:[/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0.3/db_1/network] #ls -al
drw-r----- 2 oracle dba 4096 Aug 6 15:07 log

oracle@srv4:[/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0.3/db_1/network] #cd log
-bash: cd: log: Permission denied



thanks
Randy

Hi,

You need x (Execute permission) as well :
It should be :
drwxr-x---

You may do this as below :
chmod ug+x log
