" 0402-021 Cannot run the command as specified" while setting up AIX bmr boot server

Created: 08 Apr 2013 | 5 comments

I've install AIX Netbackup client at my AIX server (btabnkbackup).

I want to make it as bmr boot server.

while I execute " /usr/openv/netbackup/bin bmrsetupboot -register" on this server it shows the following message

"/usr/openv/netbackup/bin: 0402-021 Cannot run the command as specified."

So I can't register it as a boot server.

@My bp.conf file is here


@My /etc.hosts file is here   BTABNKBACKUP
#Master Server    BTABKP1-SVR
#Media Server    BTABKP2-SVR

I logged in as a root user and have an exucution permission on "bmrsetupboot".

Colud you please give me solution to solve the problem?

Does sound like an AIX thing - I assume the version of AIX is supported as a BMR Boot Server?

Have you tried cd'ing to /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/ and then running ./bmrsetupboot -register and AIX can be picky running processes when they look in the directory you are currently in first

Hope this helps

You have tries to run directory object "/usr/openv/netbackup/bin" instead of executable file " /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bmrsetupboot". 

Please check your command again, or follow Mark's suggestions(change directry and run).

Mark's solution is working well. Boot server is registerd on master server.

But after issuing the command it shows:

/usr/bin/lslpp: Fileset bos.?p not installed.

Does it make any problem while creating SRT?

Thanks both of you

lslpp -qLc bos.?p

in case of 64 bit client run,

lslpp -qLc bos.?p64



Tauhid's picture

my client is 64 bit AIX 6.1. While I run 

#lslpp -qLc bos.?p64

The folowing operation performed.

bos.mp64:bos.mp64: : :C: :Base Operating System 64-bit Multiprocessor Runtime : : : : : : :1:0:/:1009

Then I ry again
# ./bmrsetupboot -register

and found same error :
/usr/bin/lslpp: Fileset bos.?p not installed.

How I could install bos.?p64
