Permissions denied - changing directory

I cannot change to /data even though I have su as root.

Comes up with this error message when I do cd /data

ksh: /data : permission denied

What can I fix this problem?

You need to tell more about that /data, which is not a standard directory under Solaris.

"df -k /data" would be a good start.

Are you running inside a Solaris 10 zone ?
