NS Agent push install fails on linux client running csh with the noclobber option


This issue was found on SMP 7.0.7270 and a SLES 10 x86_64 client.


The installation script removes (rm) the aex-nsclt-install.log, then runs aex-bootstrap* appending the output to the aex-nsclt-install.log file. However, C shell (csh) does not allow appending to a non-existent file.


For now, it appears that the agent must be manually installed on the client by running the aex-bootstrap binary.

More information will be added regarding any code updates for this issue.
