Issue/Introduction

Error Message :
[1]+ Segmentation fault ./ucxjlx6

FTP transfers files in ASCII mode by default.
When binaries (in an uncompressed file) are transferred in ASCII mode, it results in a "Segmentation Fault" error when staring the Unix agent manually. 

Investigation

The error can be seen:
  1. When Core dump is enabled, and a core dump file is created in the agent bin folder. The error will be in the core dump file.
  2. When starting the agent manually, with or without nohup.
