Device configuration status code 42

Message: Cannot create miscellaneous working repository

Explanation: On a device configuration request, the miscellaneous working directory or folder is not present and cannot be created.

Recommended Action: Find out why /usr/openv/volmgr/misc (UNIX and Linux) or install_path\volmgr\misc (Windows) cannot be created. On Windows, determine which accounts the NetBackup Volume Manager service and device configuration interfaces are running under. Compare them with the security properties of the database folder. On UNIX and Linux, determine whether users or device configuration interface callers are running under a user and group with permissions to create the miscellaneous directory.
