Starting CA-SystemEDGE service.

/etc/init.d/CA-SystemEDGE: /opt/CA/SystemEDGE/bin/sysedge: not found

Cause

The SystemEdge installer failed due to unable to create a directory. In this case the directory which failed to create was "/opt/CA/SharedComponents/ccs/cam". 

Environment

Release : SystemEDGE_5.9

Component : ACTIVATOR VM

Resolution

The error suggests to check: "A missing directory or insufficient disk space might have caused the error."

- Verify the install user has read/write privileges to disk (root/admin)

- Verify disk space on install partition

- Verify directory permissions

- Check directory listing

ls -al /opt/CA/SharedComponents/ | grep ccs

lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root          21 Nov  3  2013 ccs -> /apps/autosys/default

In this case, the ccs directory was associated with another. We removed the ccs directory and re-ran the install, which was then successful.
