Run error possible OS related?

i have installed NSO on a Ubuntu 16.04 vm and it installs ok. When I try to start up the ncs binary immediately exits with the following error:

/home/plauda/ncs-4.2.6.1/lib/ncs/erts/bin/ncsexec: 1: /home/plauda/ncs-4.2.6.1/lib/ncs/erts/bin/ncsexec: Syntax error: word unexpected (expecting ")")

This is happening both with the new release 4.5.3 and with the above 4.2.6.1. Has anyone seen this or have any thoughts about what might be at fault here?

Thanks in advance for any input.

Hi,

Can you provide details regarding the installed version of java & python on your installation system? Is this a local install?

-Dan

Hello,

Yes it is a local installation.

Python: 2.7.12

Java: openjdk version "1.8.0_151"

OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_151-8u151-b12-0ubuntu0.16.04.2-b12)

OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.151-b12, mixed mo

Thank you for looking at this. It’s got me baffled. Here is the exact error I get when trying to start ‘ncs’

/home/plauda/ncs-4.2.6.1/lib/ncs/erts/bin/ncsexec: 1: /home/plauda/ncs-4.2.6.1/lib/ncs/erts/bin/ncsexec: Syntax error: word unexpected (expecting ")")

Hi Peter,

I just gave this a try on a new Ubuntu-16.4 VM, all looks good...

Corrupted NSO install binary???

Shell type? (SHELL=/bin/bash)

Perhaps you can check the nso logs and /var/log/syslog for clues.

Hi.


That syntax error makes it sound like it thinks ncsexec is a shellscript. What does

file  /home/plauda/ncs-4.2.6.1/lib/ncs/erts/bin/ncsexec

give you?

--Viktor

It’s actually a binary. However, we did hunt down the source of the error. It is was the wrong platform version installer.
