APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • There are ENV files provided with the nco_p_hpom and
    nco_p_mttrapd probe which are not used by the nco_probe script.
    
    These files are installed in the
    $NCHOME/omnibus/probes/<platform> directory as
    nco_p_<probe>.env
    

Local fix

  • Update the nco_probe script to check for the probe specific ENV
    file before running the exec at the end of the script.
    
    e.g.
    # Set Environment if file exists
    if [ -f $OMNIHOME/probes/$ARCH/${PROGRAM}.env ]
    then
    . $OMNIHOME/probes/$ARCH/${PROGRAM}.env
    fi
