Hi All,

Check size of tpconfig binary. Compare with another media server on same OS and NBU version.
I have seen this where binary got corrupted and file size was 0.

Copy binary from another same version media server.

If binary size is correct, we will need to dig a bit deeper....

Please ensure that all NBU paths are added to your PATH variable so that it is never necessary to cd to binary paths.

The following actions WILL result in tpconfig filesize of 0:
cd /usr/openv/volmgr/bin
tpconfig -d > tpconfig

The above command will create a blank file called tpconfig, and then look to the left for what to put in the file. Any output should always be saved in /tmp and always have and extension, like .txt or .out.
