On Unix/Linux machines, cam or caf commands display an error message like below:

The commands seem to work but how do we remove these errors messages?



This error is displayed because the directory $CASHCOMP/Csam (eg: /opt/CA/SharedComponents/Csam) exists but the file $CASHCOMP/Csam/SockAdapter/lib/ does not exist.
cam and caf check if this directory exists and try to load the file $CASHCOMP/Csam/SockAdapter/lib/
The directory /opt/CA/SharedComponents/Csam is created by CA Socket Adapter component installation.
On Unix/Linux this component is not installed by the ITCM Agent and is not needed for the ITCM Agent to work.
The CA Socket Adapter component may have been installed by another CA product and then uninstalled but the directory $CASHCOMP/Csam was not removed during the uninstallation.



The solution is to rename the directory or simply remove it:
mv $CASHCOMP/Csam $CASHCOMP/Csam.old
