|Issue||In an unlikely situation, you may find you are not able to perform any operation (modify, remove, move, rename etc.) on a certain file, even when logged in as root.|
You would see error messages like "Operation not permitted", "Permission denied" or similar when trying to accomplish any task on the file. For example:
|Resolution||This issue is likely caused by the immutable attribute on the file.|
You can verify this with the lsattr command. The presence of the 'i' flag in the output means the immutable attribute has been set.
To remove/unset the immutable flag, use the chattr command with -i mode:
With the immutable flag unset, you should now be able to perform the desired operation on the file.
