Does /etc/rsc/ folder exists on this linux server?
You mean you are trying to install the agent on a system, and there is a remnant of a previous install on the system ?
look in /usr/lib/rsc, /etc/rsc and /usr/nsh, also is the NSHDIR environment variable set ?
you can also run the installer w/ the shell debug and work out what is triggering the 'previous installation exists' message:
sh -x RSCD83-LIN32.sh
Sorry for the late response, The /etc/rsc folder does exist but another folder /usr/lib/rsc is not present.
# ls -l /usr/lib/rsc
ls: /usr/lib/rsc: No such file or directory
Apologies for late response,
Yes, trying to install an upgrade on a server where there was a previous version installed. I was successfully able to perform the installation using a batch job on more than 100 servers but having issues a few servers.
I have attached a detailed debug log.
The folder /usr/lib/rsc does not exist
The two folders /etc/rsc and /usr/nsh exist
Does the NSHDIR environment variable affect any thing before the actual installation ?
Appreciate your response !!!
what is the output of ls `cat /etc/rsc/HOME` and ls `cat /etc/rsc/HOME`/..
There is nothing on it,
# cat /etc/rsc/HOME
# ls -l cat /etc/rsc/HOME
ls: cat: No such file or directory
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Mar 12 06:18 /etc/rsc/HOME
look in /etc/rsc/HOME - there should be a path in that file. that should be where the remnants of the install are. it looks like it's finding an 'install.ini' file in there and that's what's triggering the upgrade.
Guys, I think i have solved this myself,
removed the /etc/rsc directory and then tried installing the rscd agent, and it worked with out any issues. We are not sure, what version was previously installed but the removal of the rsc directory helped to clear the error and resolved the issue.
