# robtest

Configured robots with local control supporting test utilities:

  TLD(0)     robotic path = /dev/sg/c0tw500308c163e5d044l1

 

Robot Selection

  2)  none/quit

Enter choice: 1

 

Robot selected: TLD(0)   robotic path = /dev/sg/c0tw500308c163e5d044l1

 

Invoking robotic test utility:

Robotic test utility /usr/openv/volmgr/bin/tldtest

Robot Selection

---------------

  1)  TLD 0

  2)  none/quit

Enter choice: 2

 

# /usr/openv/volmgr/bin/tldtest -rn 0 -r /dev/sg/c0tw500308c163e5d044l1

Segmentation Fault (core dumped)

 

 

 

 


Cause



The administrator created a touchfile /usr/openv/volmgr/debug/robots. This is incorrect, the /usr/openv/volmgr/debug/robots path is intended to be a directory where logfiles are written, not a touchfile.

 


Solution



Perform the command:

rm /usr/openv/volmgr/debug/robots

If robots logging is desired, perform this command:

mkdir /usr/openv/volmgr/debug/robots
