Verification Steps

Verify contains of the following file;

Look for the following conditions;

SEVERE: createActionServer:
Failed to get port number from /var/opt/OV/tmp/actionServer.port due to
/var/opt/OV/tmp/actionServer.port.lock (Permission denied) :
/var/opt/OV/tmp/actionServer.port.lock (Permission denied)
SEVERE: createActionServer: Failed to get port number from /var/opt/OV/tmp/actionServer.port due to Port lock file not found  : Port lock file not found


Potential cause of this issue is file permissions being changed due to additional HP software being installed on the NNMi system.


To correct the problem perform the following steps;
* ovstop
* cd <NnmDataDir> 

* Check the current file permissions on the tmp directory
ls -ald tmp
The output should look like the following;
drwxrwsrwx   4 root root 4096 Nov 25 13:07 tmp

 If they don't then execute the appropriate commands here:
chown root:root tmp
chmod 777 tmp
chmod g+s tmp 

* Remove the actionServer.port and actionServer.port.lock files:
rm -f actionServer*

 * ovstart -c
