APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The 7.1 Storage Manager script 'dsmsta.rc', which can be used to
    automate the start of the storage agent, will exit with
    message:
    
    'IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Storage Agent not found on this
    system'
    
    The script tests for the installation of the Storage Agent using
    the 'rpm' command. Because the agent is not installed using an
    rpm package, the rpm command will throw an error and the script
    will exit before starting the Storage Agent.
    

Local fix

  • Start the dsmsta manually or create a script to automate the
    agent start up.
